Sue Rainsford – Diaristic Photography and Gestural Poetry in Contemporary Art
Since its inception, diaristic photography seems irrevocably tied to themes of deviancy, explicit behaviour and a general sense of disavowal. This extremist precedent, as embodied by such photographers as Nan Goldin since the 70s, has been subverted within recent contemporary practice, taking the original standpoint of a subjective moment, captured and rendered finite, and using it to incite new narratives that occur within the viewer.
Sue Rainsford is a writer based in Dublin. A History of Art and Philosophy graduate from Trinity College, she is currently pursuing an MA in Visual Arts Practices at IADT.
