Image-Making as Play.
Follow the rule of thirds, catch the decisive moment,
Master the shutter speed, play against the camera,
Collect likes and followers, challenge everything,
Fight the apparatus, win the game.

How to Win at Photography: Image-Making as Play is a new multimedia exhibition exploring the relationships between photography, image-making and play.  It invites audiences to focus on the playful aspects of visual culture, and creates unexpected connections between the history of photography and the practices of image-making within computer games and wider digital screen culture.

Featuring over 30 international artists and a rich assemblage of multimedia artworks and vernacular images representing a variety of positions across contemporary and twentieth century photography, How to Win at Photography questions the very meaning and function of photography today.
