No matter where we look, we are surrounded by beautiful images. Yet, with this excess in beauty all around, why should we bother to remember any of it? Aversive Adhesives looks into the other direction and explores the icky, the disturbing, the unsettling, or in some way 'aversive' images that repel upon sight. However, because of their repulsive nature, even when looking away these images become adhesive to you. Aversive Adhesives shines a light on a number of individuals who approach photography in new and unusual ways, who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty to create images that will stick with you.
