Within a millimetre

At the North Wall Gallery,Summertown, Wednesday 8 July to Friday 31 July. Uwe Ackermann’s photographs explore the question whether it is possible to have meaning in macro. Macro photography, the technique of glimpsing into the very small, often produces beautiful images that make us marvel at the technical prowess of the photographer and equipment, but fail to engage a higher emotion.

Is it possible within this genre to evoke fear, empathy, disgust, laughter, tension or any of the other fundamentals that make a photograph memorable?
