About Looking At The Overlooked
Looking at the Overlooked describes a way of encountering the world. The images, all taken within walking distance of Myers’s home in Stourbridge are scenes encountered without narrative or emotion, as if Myers were the first person to come across the places he turned his lens upon. The work is sequenced as a journey through a town, generic and not site-specific, a backdrop to the mundane and everyday that is too often seen and yet not considered as part of our visual landscape.
Statement from Eugenie Shinkle
“Many of Myers’ images also bespeak his fascination, inspired by Cubism, with the shallow ‘box lid’ of space between the foreground and the depths of the image. The Sub Stations are dropped like monoliths into this space. Neither distant enough to merge with the landscape, nor close enough to allow detailed scrutiny, they inhabit the middle ground like cumbersome Minimalist sculptures.”
