Guest of GLORIA: Nothing Ever Happens by Robyn Daly


"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.

Nothing Ever Happens was Highly Commended at the New Zealand Photobook of the Year 2018.
