John Hilliard: Accident and Design

Galerie Max Hetzler Berlin | Paris / Holzwarth Publications, Berlin 2015
With texts by David Campany and John Hilliard

Since the late sixties John Hilliard's work has evolved by continually raising questions about the nature of photography as a representational medium, subjecting it to a critical examination of its shortcomings and unreliability while also celebrating its material specificity. Pictorial characteristics such as lighting, proportion and perspective and their realisation within photography build the basis of Hilliard's interest and are constantly challenged in his works. By emphasising the distinctions of photography in relation to other artistic media such as painting, drawing or sculpture he continues a dialogue on its position within contemporary visual arts.
