Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin research

Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin created a series of work called People in Trouble Laughing Pushed to the Ground. This series took original archive photographs from the troubles in Northern Island and created a new meaning to them.

When the photos were originally chosen for publication; a marker dot was placed somewhere on the photograph, Broomberg and Chanarin used what was under these dots to create a series with its own narrative.

By de-contextualising these photographs, the small part that the viewing sees, takes upon a meaning within itself.

This is a clever way of creating a new narrative and is also a new way of producing the format of the photographs.
