Never Win

For her first solo show, photographer Inês Delicioso presents a series of images that aim to ‘showcase the everyday good and the everyday bad in the life of everyday people’, according to The Book Club, which is hosting the exhibition.

The images in the Never Win exhibition were captured in Portugal, where Delicioso was born, and London, where she has lived since 2011.

There’s a charming, scrapbook-like quality to the images, which depict pretty much anything Delicioso deems photograph-worthy from her everyday life.

As such, there are still-life style snaps nestling against off-the-cuff portraiture, and landscape imagery, all linked by a knack with colour and a quirky composition.

The Book Club says, ‘Never Win is an introspective exercise that focuses on the feeling of mere adequacy in a hyper-competitive world. 

‘In a reality where better, faster, stronger and newer is placed on a pedestal, the work reflects on the struggle to ignore the fast pace and focus instead on life’s smaller details.’
