For this talk, David Bate explored relations between photography and dissolution in the context of our exhibition ‘Haunting the Chapel: Photography and Dissolution‘ at our London gallery. He explored the idea of a process of decay as it relates to both photography and the allegorical meanings that may arise from it.
