An exhibition showcasing the collaborative work of twenty-two members of the Urban Photographers’ Association (UPA).
Maps work on the thin boundary between science and art, between rational representation of spatial data and the evocation of the hidden and emotional layers that compose the reality as we experience it. The inner meaning of a bi-dimensional map resides in what is left out of the physical frame, in those evocative elements that conveys a full perception of the territory considered and represented.
Cartographies are not only a combination of paper and ink or digital data; their meaning resides in those hidden intangible layers that allow a full comprehension of the charted territory. In a similar way a photographic frame works as a self-contained limit whose meaning stands in what remains out of it. The omitted, and its evocative meaning, becomes the signi cance of the image. Charting the Invisible aims to break the boundary of what we traditionally consider the cartographic interpretation of reality. The representation of those hidden layers - emotional, intangible and evocative – becomes the focus of the works shown in the exhibition.

This exhibition is curated by Tanya Houghton and Stefano Carnelli, and organised in partnership with Tate, the Centre for Urban and Community Research (CUCR), Goldsmiths, University of London, Openvizor, UrbanPhotoFest and the Urban Photographers’ Association (UPA). In addition, Goldsmiths' staff and alumni taking part in the exhibition feature in Goldlink Magazine, autumn/winter 2017.
The Urban Photographers' Association (UPA) aims to show the work of contemporary international photographers focusing on cities and the urban realm. The photographers and artists shown in the exhibition represent a diverse range of practices including landscape, architectural, portraiture, fine art, documentary, street-based and object photography; all informed by an active engagement with urban theory and associated research methods. The projects reflect the experiences of personal, often immersive involvement in the urban spaces and they also raise questions about how photography might speak to debates within urban ethnography and visual arts practice.
