Nothing Ever Happens - Robyn Daly


Nothing Ever Happens - Robyn Daly


Nothing Ever Happens


"Heaven, is a place, where nothing ever happens” sang David Byrne in 1979. In her fifth book, Robyn Daly applies this nihilistic framework to her photographs from various locations around the world (2013-2016). The images that Daly has curated are tied together with unfulfilling tension, by the reality of constantly waiting for something meaningful to fall into our lives. Captured exclusively on black & white film, these photographs can be viewed together as tiny fragments of internal reflection, hedonism, oblivion, existential desire and the inherent loneliness of the human condition.
