On his exhibition 6300, Simm Steel writes: “One day when I didn’t have my camera in hand, I realised my Nokia 6300 actually had a camera and, with the thought that I would miss any fleeting image, I began to use its small digital eye to capture what might be lost forever. I didn’t believe anything could ever come of these tiny images and the sole purpose of using this ‘camera’ was to remind myself to return to the scene and take the ‘real’ shot – a ridiculous task – and so began the archive of when all was lost and found.”
Exhibition opens: 3–5pm Saturday 22 June 2019
