Looking for Nothing is a series of photographs exploring the possibilities offered by the act of looking at what appears irrelevant but still exists, nevertheless.

As a photographic series, the work does not fit in any established photographic genres and does not provide any clear rational for its existence.

Instead, Looking for Nothing investigates the differences between giving answers and asking questions as a method when creating work. It encourages viewers to consider what the reasoning behind the creation of such images might be.

In other words, by not presenting the work as illustrations to a preconceived theme or concept it gives space for the subjectivity and unpredictability that populates most of our lives to come through.

The exhibition invites all to join the author in the chain of thought trigged by the process of looking, observing, and deciding to photograph something.

Arnold Borgerth is a Fellow at The Margate School.

As an artist, he has exhibited widely across South America and the UK. Arnold is a Photography Lecturer at Goldsmiths in London and works as a freelance photographer for the arts and design sector.

Originally from Brazil and currently based in Margate, Arnold has been a practicing photographer since 1980.
