Cedric Chatterley was a graduate student in photography, hanging out with his camera in Cairo, Illinois, when he was approached by a young man who invited him to photograph “everything in my house that's broken.” Mark Fisher believed in the power of the photographic document to facilitate change, and thus began Chatterley and Fisher’s twenty-five year (so far) collaborative project Olive Branch, named for Mark's Illinois hometown. The exhibition, which includes photographs, journals, ephemera, and handmade cameras, documents nearly three decades of Mark Fisher’s life and reveals the evolution of this remarkable relationship at the foundation of Chatterley's most important work.
