Writing the error

In Pursuit of Error is a practice research project which evolves through theorizing the nature of the error in photography, and, more broadly, the ideology of the ‘mistake’ in visual culture.  Through observing, testing and questioning the images that I am sent I have evolved a series of observations which have been published and presented internationally.
