In curatorial terms, ‘Bleak House’ is a proposition based on a narrative device used in the chapterized Charles Dickens’ novel of the same name from 1852-1853. Dickens’ novel is a typical Victorian story of intrigue regarding the dynamics of English class structure and its hidden affairs. It is Dickensian in the most literal sense. The Bleak House proposed here within the pages of our similarly chapterized photography collection is altogether lacking in overt politicized drama. Instead, the proposition is regarding narration and how artists function under the idea of an oblique and omniscient author.
