Slow Documents was a large-scale photographic exhibition at the Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery. The exhibition presents a series of new work exploring cameraless photography as a tool for ecological thinking. Using outdated and reclaimed photographic materials, the artist arranged a set of conditions in which the subject, medium, and environment are each free to express their agency towards the co-creation of the image. These photographs evoke the most elemental qualities of natural process to establish a landscape aesthetic built on the values of reciprocity, engagement and collaboration.

The exhibition was on public display from 24 March - 8 May 2017. James Farley also presented a one-hour artist talk to a gallery audience on Sunday, 26 March.
