    About The Work

    Josephine Pryde works primarily with photography to address the nature of image making and methods of display and reception. In her work, Pryde often references the history of both commercial and fine art photography and the impact of technological advancements in imaging. For her 2011 Chisenhale Gallery exhibition Pryde produced a new body of photographic work that looked at issues relating to the reproduction of images, their political currency and intellectual value, as well as the impact of new imaging processes on debates around subjecthood and women’s rights.

    Pryde’s new edition for Chisenhale Gallery, Freshly Cut Grass, May Blossom, Stinging Nettles, Bluebells and Lady's Bedstraw, Picked in the Spring and Exposed in the Darkroom (2019), is a photogram depicting the word ‘SHAME’, drawn by the artist with fresh cut flowers and grasses. The title directly describes the edition’s production process, and continues Pryde’s ongoing work with photograms. The edition exploits the immediacy of an analogue photographic technique using light to fix images of fresh spring plants that spell out a supposedly negative emotion, evoking a sense of smell and touch in connection to the words. The reconfiguration of these elements reflects Pryde’s intent to question, to experience and to live with, and through, a perpetually recurring emotional state.
