The Dead Photos – Does Tom Phillips have an issue with the dark side of life, i.e., death? Probably, otherwise he wouldn’t have created a website dedicated to the subject (dah…). Even though I searched for the purpose or reasoning behind this exhibition, I couldn’t find a textual explanation. But, as art often is, the Dead Photos exhibition is one which is open to interpretation. Want a glimpse? See the picture below which has an ironic twist as it has to do with the Dead Sea.
