Peter Fraser HonFRPS 'Mathematics' exhibition

22 August 2018

Exhibitions

Closes: 16 September 2018


The first UK exhibition of the photographic series Mathematics by British photographer Peter Fraser HonFRPS.


Peter Fraser is concerned with the matter that comprises our everyday. Drawing from the philosophical enquiries of Lucretius, Aristotle, Pythagoras, Galileo and more recently the Swedish-American physicist Max Tegmark, Fraser brings together a series of photographs of seemingly disparate and unrelated objects and encounters – including still lifes, landscapes and portraiture – to reflect on the idea that time, space, and everything within it, can be described mathematically.

Shot in numerous locations and countries, behind each image captured is Fraser’s consideration that: “the atomic structure of materials, and the influence of DNA on the appearance of people and all other living organisms, rely on the language of mathematics for their expression.”
