Photography is not usually associated with the present. Within Williams’ practice, however, photography is insistently concerned with the present as it's subject and drive. Williams works with photography as a reference, researching/photographing/filming/painting/drawing/reconfiguring something of photography. The component works here descend from photographs, are of photographs, and are like a photograph in their referentiality. Although the resultant work is often visually very slow, the processes of image-generation are somewhat brief and active, involving methods of reworking or re-acting, which follow through into the installation of pieces, or configurations, which remain largely undetermined until in the time and place of exhibition. Photographing continues this practice with a new configuration of work in Trocadero’s Gallery Two.
