Jamie Campbell's "Tiger Girl."

Joined under the banner of the exhibition Empty at Montreal’s Galerie Push, Kotama Bouabane and Jamie Campbell present two takes on the theme in their hip photographic work.

For his half of the show Boubane presents selections from two series of work. In Chalkboards, Boubane documents chalkboards at the Ontario College of Art and Design over the span of a week. He found it spoke to the outmoded nature of photographic technology, in that everyday newer cameras effectively erase older ones. He also liked how language could be transferred to text and then erased.

“Photography in general is the idea of capturing something, but it’s just an image on a two dimensional surface you can never really capture it wholly,” says Bouabane.
