The Time We Call Our Own at Open Eye Gallery, Dustin Thierry, Opulence

The Time We Call Our Own brings together photographic projects from across the world that document a collective sense of time, place and identity.

The heart of any city can often be found in its nightlife. The palpable energy found in bars and clubs (and sometimes the living room) often reveals the inner workings of a space previously unfamiliar to us. Through photography, we can collect these shared experiences, document these cultures, and store this euphoric spirit to relive it later on.

Featuring work from a group of internationally based photographers and artists, The Time We Call Our Own explores photographic work that documents this collective sense of time and place. Style, location and music all play a part in our understanding of the identity of a city, and the hallowed ground it becomes through image making.  

As right-leaning populism increasingly dominates the majority, this exhibition seeks to investigate notions of visibility, champion these tightly-knit scenes and allow us to witness the ever-enduring regions of society that counteract the norm. Using nightlife as an access point, we can learn new ways of being together, and perhaps find a shared language of escapism that we can use to combat the toe-tapping waking hours of everyday life.

The Time We Call Our Own is generously supported by SEVENSTORE.
