In Pursuit of Error is a practice research project which investigates the photographic 'mistake'. This is a call for new contributions of errors to the project and inclusion in future publication and exhibition opportunities in 2019.

In Pursuit of Error is a practice research project which has been running since 2014.  Photographs already submitted to the project have been used to develop papers and journal articles and shown at conferences and exhibitions in the UK and Europe.  The project website shows the contributions and writing so far:

I'm making this call to continue the flow of contributions to the project and for inclusion in a publication and exhibition planned for late 2019.

I’m looking for contributions of photographic errors - images that are blurred, out of focus, under-exposed, over-exposed, distorted or which have gone wrong somehow - the ones that normally get deleted or thrown away: send them to me instead!

I’m particularly interested in the errors that occur in digital photography as these are often less likely to be retained.  The project's focus is on errors that have occurred 'in-camera', at the point of taking the photo, rather than those that have been created in post production, so please don't send images which have been ‘glitched’ or had some kind of error-effect applied. 

If you would like to contribute please send me your photographic errors and tell me how they occurred and why it is an error for you.  In particular please tell me whether the error occurred accidentally (e.g. wrong camera setting) or as a result of a deliberate action on your part (e.g. waving the camera about!).   Include links to your website or online presence so I can credit you on the website.

Your images and your narrative of how your error occurred will be included on the project website and used in developing the research project and in future presentations of the project.  All contributors retain their copyright and receive full credit in all future forms and presentations of the project.
