Georgina Campbell invites you to invent meaning and narratives while exploring her autobiographical photography and camera work—revealing acts of magic not visible to the naked eye.

A literal sign discovered in a fish and chip shop in Moscow revealed itself over the peak of a steep side street, inspiring the title and the intention of this body of work.

This is the Sign that you’ve been looking for was created in 2018, during an artist residency in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Campbell’s newest collection of images take inspiration from her time wandering the streets, photographing urban landscapes after working extensively in Iceland’s wild, empty landscapes. Images paired like a storyboard or singled out like cinema stills create visual anecdotes about the idea of ‘signs’ or receiving messages from the universe. 

“St. Petersburg and Moscow were a treasure trove of magical sights and visual gifts that may seem mundane to a local but fascinating to the visitor.

Most places are captured or documented in the most compelling way through the eyes of a foreigner, and I was most fascinated by the very ordinary details of the city streets.”

About

Georgina Campbell is a photographic artist and teacher interested in exploring the photograph as a sculptural object, building her cameras and experimenting with landscapes.
