The exhibition’s curator and MA course leader, Joanna Lowry, describes the collective works as dealing specifically with two kinds of inheritance: “On the one hand the gifts bestowed upon us by our ancestors (freely given, but always implying some kind of moral contract), and on the other the traces of biology and history that have worked their way inescapably through our very being and that we are forced to acknowledge whether we want them to be there or not.”

Lowry says; “Each of these ideas of inheritance is a particular kind of fictional construction, but one that is nevertheless central to the way we forge identity in society. Photography has always been a device for slicing through the temporal order allowing us to see what we have inherited from a future threshold that only it has been able to create.”.
