‘In Images We Trust’ 2022 by Gemma Lewis Studio. Gemma is a final year postgraduate student at Central Saint Martins, studying MA Contemporary Photography; Practices and Philosophies.
This work is referencing the contemporary pre-disposition to blindly believe in what we see: images, media, news, advertising in the same way we might have believed in religion and faith. It can be read two ways ‘In Images We Trust or Trust In Images’ either as a proposition, a mantra or as a command. “Believing in images” is contrasted with religious belief where there are no material images, only blind faith.
