Tony Cox: Incense

Tony Cox: Incense at Fuse Gallery. "...The sense of smell is closely linked to memory, affecting people’s ability to recall past events and experiences. Artist Tony Cox shares a selection of his black and white photographs from the mid 90s to early 2000s when he was living between California and New York. He explains, 'sense was a big thing then – the smell of eucalyptus trees, weed, nag champa, the stench of Canal St, the smudging of sage..' Incense is both the literal smell that can trigger memory, but also something that disappears and can’t be grasped, like the memories Cox captures in his photographs. Most of Cox’s images come from his eighty-eight rolls of 35mm film that were stored for over ten years before being processed."
