LIGHT BECOMES SILENCE
This is a solo exhibition of photographic works by McBride
and a new collaborative bookwork with Mexican writer Roberto Bravo, based on their journey through Patagonia.
The photographs are part of a larger body of work, which uses the analogue medium in response to landscape. Landscape has a history in the photographic medium but it is an area dominated by the male perspective. Why do so few women make work in and of the land and why do we know so little of those that do? Some of these questions feed into McBride’s area of interest.
Bravo’s text chronicles their journey through Patagonia, reflecting on the mythical, socio-political and historical specifics of the places they visit. This work is also impacted by a car crash which left McBride in hospital and Bravo under arrest in Chile.
