'A master of the dark arts of collodion photography, Ben Cauchi finds himself engaged in a singularly difficult balancing act: on the one hand is his chosen medium, with its nostalgic, antiquarian allure, and on the other are the always contemporary questions he wants to ask with it—about, for example, the permeability of truth and falsehood, and the relationship of seeing to knowing.' Geoffrey Batchen
The Evening Hours brings together new writing on Cauchi's practice with reproductions of over eighty of his photographs. It includes essays by:
Aaron Lister, Curator of New Zealand Art at City Gallery Wellington, New Zealand.
Professor Geoffrey Batchen who teaches the history of photography at Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand.
Glenn Barkley, Senior Curator (2008-2014), Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), Sydney, Australia.
