Chapter 1 - Origins and Approaches

Annabelle Dalby, Lucy Steggals

This collaborative show at The 12 Gallery explores and questions existing modes of collecting & archiving.
These perpetual editing decisions are an intrinsic part of life and are very telling, exposing our desire to modulate our reality to project a preferred version.
Dalby & Steggals are appropriating objects and images from their own collections to create an alterior archive. Using their individual approaches; Dalby sensitively re-presents existing photographs to highlight that which we may have missed; Steggals appropriates and maniplulates imagery to weave alternative fictions. By combining the two they have made a series of works that resonate with compelling narratives.

Children of Wadi Al Na’am and photojournalist Silvia Boarini

A series of startling and moving images documenting the harsh reality of life for Israel's Negev Bedouins living in the unrecognized village of Wadi Al Na’am. The exhibition brings together the work of Israeli NGO "Negev Coexistence Forum for Civil Equality" (NCF) which has been running a participatory photography programme for young people in the village led by designer Ilan Molcho, and London based photojournalist Silvia Boarini.

The photographs shed light on daily life in this harsh environment, documenting the unresolved status of the people, and the impact of government policies on their daily lives.


04 Nov - 7.00pm

Can participatory photography change lives?

The panel will discuss the way that participatory photography projects can empower disadvantaged communities, and will look at some of the challenges and tensions involved.
Designer Ilan Molcho has been running photography workshops in the unrecognized Bedouin village of Wadi Al Na'am in Southern Israel for two years. By introducing children to the art of photography, the project nurtures their creative skills and allows them to share their view of their community, family and the daily hardships they face
Jane Martin, is programme manager for Photovoice, a UK based organization which has worked with partners to create 50 participatory photography projects in 23 countries worldwide

Amnesty International Media Awards 2010

Robin Hammond Kate Holt Giles Duley

Robin Hammond’s expose of the garment industry in Lesotho is a brilliant example of campaigning photojournalism. His exposure of the environmental and human destruction being caused by the processes of the garment industry caused Gap and Levi to make swift and wide reaching changes to their operations in the country. Kate Holt worked under constant police surveillance to document the struggle of elderly people to survive in Zimbabwe as the economy collapsed around them. Giles Duley documented the work of the Acid Burns Survivors Foundation in Bangladesh, highlighting the brutal reality of this crime to audiences in Dhaka and London.


23 Nov - 7.00pm

Does the Camera Ever Lie?

In 1906, Mark Twain wrote about the role of the ‘incorruptible kodak – the only witness that couldn’t be bribed’ - in exposing human rights atrocities in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Since that time, photographers have played a crucial role in bringing to light many of the world’s unseen human rights tragedies, but how trustworthy are their images?

This discussion will question to what extent photojournalists are influenced to give a particular perspective on a situation by the organizations that commission them, whether NGOs or media organizations, and how far they allow their own personal views on a situation to dictate the images they produce.

Does the drive to find the iconic image result in the photographer misrepresenting what is doubtless a complex situation? And are the images which come to represent a whole country or moment in history giving a biased perspective to the viewer?

The panel includes:

Colin Jacobson, photo editor for major publications including the Independent Magazine; critic and founder of Reportage Magazine; author of books and articles on photography; professor of photojournalism at Westminster University.
Susan Schulman, freelance photographer specialising in editorial and documentary work; has worked for organisations, such as the World Food Programme and Red Cross; published widely in periodical and broadsheet publications; winner of this year’s Amnesty International Media Award for GQ piece ‘Congo: the horror’.
Sean Smith, staff photographer with the Guardian; was embedded with troops in Iraq and Afghanistan - work in Iraq won him a Royal Television Society award, the British Press Photographers' Association award for multimedia journalism and the British Press Awards digital journalist of the year prize.
Marcus Bleasdale, award winning photojournalist known for his work on human rights and conflict. His images have been published across the world in a wide range of publications - New York Times, Sunday Times Magazine, Telegraph Magazine, Le Monde, TIME Magazine, and National Geographic; author of two books "One Hundred Years of Darkness" 2002 and "The Rape of a Nation" 2009.

Katha: in the footsteps of George Orwell in Burma

Julio Etchart

To coincide with the 75th anniversary of the publication of George Orwell's famous first novel, Burmese Days, I went to follow the original location in the remote town of Katha, in present day Myanmar. Orwell spent 5 years in the 1920s as a police officer in the Indian Imperial Police Force in Burma, then a province of British India. This experience inspired him to write the book, one of the greatest denunciations of imperialism ever created

‘Now you eat it, now you don’t’

Camilla Broadbent

Food engages all our senses. It arouses strong emotions. Food can awaken the intense childhood memories of delight and disgust, as revealed in this playful collection of images. The series references the concerns of seventeenth century Dutch still life artists.

I live in Hove but was made in London.
I went to Norfolk and I love Scotland (largely cos my ex who 'doesn't love me' introduced me to its beauty..I suspect I knew it anyway as I always seemed to listen to Scottish singers in my teens) Being dumped for a fatty wasn't ideal (I already see the world backwards!)

I don't particularly like Hove apparently this is unusual.

Surreal Series ...

Katarina Baliova

Surreal Series... is a selection of images studying female form and its connections with surrounding space and interlinking objects. The images, in black and white capture movements and shapes, which introduce mystery and reveal perspective visions in the mind of the viewer. They are sensual and mysterious, with the play of light and dark highlighting bodies in motion and in repose.

This work is influenced by surrealism, and symbolism in combination with abstract surfaces and connected with the live sculpture of body, giving a peaceful revelation of serenity.

Spice of Eden

Cinnamon Heathcote-Drury

Indian spices and vegetables are explored as monumental and archaic forms, by Fine Artist & photographer, Cinnamon Heathcote-Drury. Designed as a site-specific installation for the Anglo-Indian fusion restaurant Cinnamon Kitchen, the adjacent Anise bar also hosts two intriguing portraits that celebrate genetic difference without defining specific cultural identity.

The theme of 'Eden' underlies all the works - a hint of danger and plenty of questions left unresolved. The spices and vegetables often resemble fossilized ancient relics, stone or carved wood, and force the viewer to engage with the forceful microscopic intensity presented before them.

Dead on Holiday

Through a darkly comedic lens, this photography collaboration explores the seduction and anxiety of tourism. Breaking the mould of the traditional holiday snap shot, the series aims to poke fun at the relationship between photography and tourism, as well as the suggested danger of visiting any foreign place.

Remaining faithful to the constructed artificiality of holiday photos, we have departed from them in all other respects. Our settings are unidentifiable and relatively mundane, the subjects are anonymous and the images are records not of life, but death.

Wild Places

Robert Pereira Hind

When we think of the wilderness we often imagine it lurking many miles from central London. Well perhaps not, ‘Wild Places’ is my attempt to draw our attention to the natural beauty of the wild, literally overlooked on our city streets.

The writer Stephen Graham makes the point in his book of 1923 ‘The Gentle Art Of Tramping’, that “the wild is ubiquitous”.

Behind this urban facade the wild lurks only a few inches away, between paving stones, behind dumped fridges, along the edge of a curbstones, pushing it's way through the cracks into the light of our lives.


02 Nov - 16 Nov


Carol Marin-Pache

Carol Marin-Pache new work stems from an extensive study that captures ‘traces’ left and found in her surroundings. These images have a painterly quality, the subject is ambiguous and the scale of the actual object is unspecified. MP is drawing the attention of the viewer to the making, and viewing, of photographic images more than the things they depict. The transformation of the objects offers the observer a wide range of opportunities to add their own imagination to the print.

Starring at us and pointing with its sharp nipple right at my nose – The Tit – a hero of my photo story. So, from that day Tit stayed in my hand and followed us everywhere we went to, done what we did.

Field Works: Photographs from East Anglia

For almost a decade Justin Partyka has been photographing the agrarian community of rural East Anglia. In this first London solo-exhibition of these photographs, he reveals the strong sense of place this region, and how the land intimately shapes the way of life. Often melancholy in feel, Partyka’s work shows a world that is rooted to the past and its memories. His photographs may suggest that this is a way of life that is passing, but for now they tell the story of the small-time farmers who are reluctant to disappear.

Mona Kuhn

In these photographs, Kuhn encapsulates the emotions of living in Brazil through her memory of the landscape’s green, yellow and pink palette, as well as her intimate reconnection with its people. By contrasting the vitality of the dense Brazilian countryside with the sparse interior of an abandoned apartment, Kuhn establishes her own fantasy of time and place. Within the portraits, the artist develops a trusting relationship with her subjects, allowing her to portray the complexities of human nature, both tempting and provoking the viewer’s imagination. Kuhn delicately intertwines these disparate aspects, culminating in her most mature work to date.

Yangtze, The Long River

Nadav Kander

Nadav Kander's series Yangzte, The Long River is simultaneously poem, travel journal and visual odyssey: we are made to witness the journey from the river's mouth to its source at a time of tumultuous social and environmental change. Kander draws us into the charged landscape through his images; photographic odes to the disquieting and arresting metamorphosis of a nation's spatial and temporal ballasts, distilling human-scale intimacy within scenes of monumental transformation.
Kander was chosen as the winner of the prestigious Prix Pictet award in 2009.
A new publication will accompany this exhibition.

What They Want, What They Get: The Irish Travellers of Dale Farm

Unmanageable TV

This selection of images follows the lives of a group of Families on Dale Farm, Essex. Dale Farm is currently the largest traveller site in Europe and has for the past eight years been constantly under the threat of eviction by Basildon Council.
I first visited the site in 2002 and since that first day I have felt welcomed into what is a warm and vibrant community - one large family that although existing under the extreme stress that facing eviction brings, loves and supports all its members; whilst trying to maintain as normal a life as possible.

London in Detail

Sean Pines

Sean Pines takes us on a personal journey of his native London. Rich with textural narrative, the work seeks a re-engagement with the urban environment that challenges preconcieved notions of the city of London.

London In Detail builds on Sean Pines personal work featured in PhotoMonth 2007 which celebrated the found object. This year Gallery 320 presents an exhibition that cunningly delves into the minutiae of London, renewing a curiosity of our familiar and beloved city.

Somewhere Else

David Barette

'Somewhere Else' is an exhibition of photographs by David Barette, reconfiguring the everyday to make it strange, in cities such as Budapest, Lisbon and elsewhere. The photographs were taken between 2007 and 2009 in less ‘iconic’ cities to avoid the obvious and capture the surreal (an abiding interest) in the commonplace. An eclectic range of intuitive shots include a derelict communist factory on the outskirts of Budapest, Lisbon walls and a postcard rack of literally faded Hollywood stars in Bologna.

With the Olympics on the horizon, Hackney’s landscape is changing. Capture Hackney invited Londoners to submit photographs that caught the spirit of Hackney as the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games approach. A selection of images chosen will now be exhibited and archived at Hackney Museum and Archives for future generations to look back on in wonder.

Capture Hackney is part of wider project, Mapping the Change, which involves a number of projects that encourage Hackney residents to reflect on how they feel about the current changes taking place in the borough.

The ‘Playground’ series explores the pursuits of teenagers and their engagement with the environment; vehicles are stolen, displaced and disfigured by fire. Young people increasingly engage in activities of theft, violence and destruction often fueled by boredom and disenfranchisement. Our social structure has somehow failed them and they seek satisfaction through things that challenge the system, cause damage and ultimately have some kind of effect. The majority of the perpetrators are from deprived areas, which lack facilities to entertain and stimulate young minds.

Photographs record the world - but they also offer a medium for telling stories about it. In this sense all photographs partake of the imaginary. The photographers represented in this show are all bound by a desire to tell extraordinary stories. They may be stories prompted by experiences as diverse as a remembered landscape, a collection of bookmarks, a reading of Dante, or a walk through city streets - but each of these bodies of work began with a photographic encounter and developed into something much more sustained – a proposal about the world – a series of Historia.

The works are meticulously set up so as to recount specific tales or events; either from the artist's personal life or from imagined utopias. The viewer will find themselves immersed in a make-believe space, not childishly illustrated, but instead wittily and brilliantly interpreted.

Passing By

Anne Clements

Old buildings, whether ramshackle or restored, have a strange power of fascination. They question our own permanence as much as the built environment that surrounds us. Just as we move on and change, so do they. In ‘Passing By’ Anne Clements preserves a precise moment in the life of the buildings she has chosen to photograph, when man and architecture come together for one split second in time, to represent an era.

In Light Of

Bea Haut

An installation using a series of photographs referring to and re-creating the optical illusion of cinema or the zoetrope. The photographs sit as stills yet there is a movement or force that travels through them. This is not only created by presenting them in series, but within them are fluent threads of activity and disorder. This is often only visible by the scatterings left behind and is also delicate evidence of a more interior experience.

Family Photographs

Robin Grierson

Grierson feels that family photographs are "an attempt to preserve love and life, to wrap it up in cotton wool so that nothing can damage it." In Grierson's work the viewer certainly gets a strong sense of the photographer really "seeing" those whom he photographs and that his gaze is wholly connected with his subjects. These photographs are strangely ageless in the sense that one finds it difficult to pinpoint the era when they were taken. Their framing makes little reference to the contemporary and the colour palate is subtle; these photographs are a timeless commentary on family life.

It forms a striking exhibition, in two parts, that reveals the poignant, the paradoxical and the absurd.

Images have been selected from the fine art, commercial and established photographers’ collections at the London Photographic Association and Gallery 1839.

Where do you think you are going? - photographic gaps

Kairo Uza Jeannette Petrik

Product designer Jeannette Petrik and entomology student Kairo Uza explore the imaginary lives of the objects that surround us, and of the people that appear equally object- like to us in our everyday encounters. Drawing on this observation, they present a series of photographs that challenge our intuitional causal thoughts by exposing their deep grounding in prejudice. Reflecting on this hegemony of pictorial representation, its claim to truth so to say, they fill the gaps their photographic sequences deliberately leave open through the ruthless narrative intervention of other media.

The Hermit and The Sleeping Beast

Martin Lau

Intimate portraits of behemoths. A groundbreaking collaboration between the photographer and electroacoustic artists Cos Chapman and Isnaj Dui, who have composed a soundtrack specially for the images, and are performing it live at the private view and the closing day. Limited edition photo book/CD available from opening night.

On one hand the industrial vehicles featured here are “purely” utilitarian objects, but by virtue of the complex and exposed nature of their working parts, they take on an almost Baroque intricacy. It’s because of my deeply felt personal response to these machines that I consider these photographs to be intimate portraits.

Cold Blooded

Eline van den Boogaard

Eline’s focus in Cold Blooded is on the alienation of the role of nature in the modern urban environment; she looks at the need to fill the ensuing gap, with increasingly detached and abstract references that are recontextualised to suit our purposes.

Eline works solely within a carefully set studio space, borrowing elements from the tactile world and repositioning them alongside her subjects as fetishised objects.

Shooting on transparency film so as to bring out a vibrant sense of colour, these images also serves to juxtapose natural colours with the artificial, again problematising our awkward relationship with nature and beauty.

Muniments: Iran

Afshin Dehkordi

Muniments is the first UK solo show of the photographic and text installation work of the Iranian born British artist Afshin Dehkordi. Focusing on the tangled and contradictory relationships between Iran and the West, Muniments peels open the subtle layers of public and private ownership in contemporary Iranian society.

The works display the underlying drama and construction of the ‘story’, inherent within the language of journalism and an important concern within Muniments. A shift in awareness occurs as the mix between migration, architecture and borders reveals seductive social and personal ideals or longings that are sharply displaced from focus.

You Must Never Leave This Place online

Linda Duffy

You Must Never Leave This Place is an ongoing project that has developed out of a series of conversations over the last ten years. It is the outcome of a process of listening, looking and learning. Of collecting stories and taking photographs.

The stories are of life experience and interests pursued with enthusiasm; of home, family, ancestors and local lore. The photographs, taken in and around the family home, are an attempt to capture a sense of time and place.

This exhibition includes an edited selection of images from the series.


Lush online

Alix Edwards

Can't afford to go to the Caribbean? LUSH brings the tropics to you with a bright, vibrant colour infusion of the flowers and spices that awed the traders who 'discovered' them and are now an integral part of Hackney life.

Nirmala Savadekar

Images printed in alternative processes with platinum and gold


Inside online

Mandy Williams

‘Inside’ is a series of still video images. The work, which was shot from the street at dusk over a period of two months, explores the idea of home as a sanctuary, retreat or cell. It captures people, self-contained in their routines at the end of the day, as similar repetitions play out across the city. It is inspired by Bachelard’s Poetics of Space and the lit house as a beacon, hut, and refuge and Derek Jarmans’ video ‘Journey to Avebury’ where a lyrical approach to landscape highlights the mystical and ritual elements of place.

Last of the Real High Streets

Colin O'Brien, Jane Egginton

Words and images gathered over the last year tell the story of Chatsworth Road. Situated in Hackney this high street, filled almost exclusively with independent shops,
is a rarity in modern Britain. The butchers ‘Mighty Meats’ and the ‘Chatsworth Tyre Service’ have been run by the same family for decades. A deli, juice bar and coffee shop have recently
opened each playing their own part in keeping alive this peculiar and wonderful street. The Olympics (a stone’s throw away) and the revival of the street market, once Hackney’s biggest, could see this fascinating stretch of road change beyond all recognition.

Sunara Begum

Ara is a new exhibition by the contemporary visual artist and filmmaker Sunara Begum that explores the world of a mythical figure and icon called Ara. The exhibition includes photography, film and installation, which opens a dialogue between the old world and the new.

Ara is a symbolic character who lives between worlds and embodies the journey of displacement from homeland to the diasporic experience. She is an illusive figure who moves through time and space with a shadowy presence of a bygone era. Reflecting on her beginnings through dreams and memories, Ara travels the path that lies beyond tradition.

"Guantanamo: If the light goes out" illustrates three experiences of home: the naval base at Guantanamo, the complex of camps where the detainees have been held, and the homes where former detainees now find themselves trying to rebuild their lives. "Letters to Omar" is a selection of cards and letters sent to Brighton resident Omar Deghayes during his five years of captivity. Together, these two projects create a sense of the hardship and isolation these innocent men endured.

Mark Denton makes striking large scale portraits which evoke a sense of intimacy, intensity and connectedness.
Alex Drago's portraits of the Tower of London's Beefeaters are concerned with history as a cultural presence, whilst Krisztina Sardi's unnerving portraits of identical twins are centered around issues of self representation, identity and voyeurism.
Andrea Schraven's carefully crafted formalist images explore the tension between absence and presence which is rooted in the everyday, and Nishant Shukla explores the connection between memory and loss by recording ephemeral moments of tender beauty.

The Crossing


This event considers the shifting terrain of the contemporary image world and what will be necessary for photographers to embrace to fulfil their creative aspirations and goals. With concerns such as future funding and commissioning; the impact of social engagement on the print market; the overlaps between commercial, documentary and fine art; the demise of the white wall gallery and the rise of the virtual showcase. The Crossing asks one question – are you going to stay where you are, live in the past, or cross over into the new world offered to photographers through technology, tenacity and a mind shift around what is possible and how it can be achieved. Rhubarb brings together some of its favourite thinkers with new style parters such as DMB Media and those boys at Duckrabbit…who are opening the proceedings with an image party…

Behind the Whip is a series of photographic portraits and interviews taken on location in the city and dungeon of each participating global Dominatrix by photographer Maria Coletsis. The photo essays within this book provide an intimate look at the women, their words, and the dungeons which make up this fast-growing subculture community. They discuss why they chose domination, who their clients are, the services they provide and the demand for them, and how their services uniquely represent the city in which they work. The photographs reveal an element of our culture which is manifest in the lives of these women. Coletsis invites the viewer to experience the rich and varied sexuality of a multi-racial group of strong, adventurous women.

Food keeps Body and Soul together

Astrid Schulz

‘Eat, everybody, food keeps body and soul together!’ This is what Astrid’s grandmother used to say before every family meal.

This ongoing series is bringing together Astrid’s passion for food and her previous career as a costume designer. Before each image concept was developed, most of the sitters were asked about their favorite meals. In other pictures the edible item is telling the viewer something about the sitter’s pastime…

In 2004 the series won the London Photographic Bronze Award in the category 'Beauty and Form'.

The exhibition is held in memory of Liese-Lotte Buck, who sadly died in 2009.

NakedBritain/Naked Exposure

Anastasia Trahanas

These are self-portraits where there is no static formality; the subjects select location whether it is private, public, or intimate. This is an ongoing documenting body of work which I began early 2005 which takes a look at 'the self' as a raw individual as well as their response to society. The representation of 'the self' is portrayed with an element of exposing their 'identity', and whilst being bought up in a western society where clothing is a part of our attire, the shedding of garments symbolically adds to this element-as it is a vital part of acceptance

Salt Harvest: Bonaire

Tom Hawkins

Bonaire is an island in the Netherlands Antilles chain, off the coast of Venezuela. One third of the island is devoted to the harvest of salt, and the huts of the colonial era slaves who worked the salt pans are preserved within the modern salt production facilities.

The silent slave dwellings and the obelisks that warned ships to avoid the area are neatly arranged along the coast, surrounded by the towering mounds of salt. It is a treeless, windswept, and curiously appealing place.

Sometimes the marks of our cultivation are both beautiful and terrifying.

suddenly I am nowhere

Craig Andrews Isidro Ramirez and painters Sam Douglas Tom Owen James Ryan

Five artists in different disciplines - photography, film, painting and collage. Time enters all the work, compressed in very different ways, and space is made strange through multiple exposure, hypnotic repetition or encrustations of paint, or collage which combines the now of gestural paint with the then of the found photo; what we are seeing this minute is the present and the past fused into one (there is no time in the unconscious, Freud says). What is foregrounded is materiality: all attention focussed on the process, the reality of the object broken into through its own reproduction.

Dogs in cars

Martin Usborne

Martin Usborne has created a series of huge and haunting portraits of dogs looking out of closed car windows. The images are lit cinematically, many are taken at night or twilight and all are printed at an impressive scale so that the dogs’ eyes stare out at us in a powerful yet eerie way. The pictures are an exploration of the muteness of animals but also talk about human feelings of isolation and detachment.

An exhibition of pinhole photographs by Justin Quinnell featuring a display of his mouth images and a set of giant images taken with his wheelie bin pinhole camera. These giant, 4" x 3" paper negatives cannot be reproduced and feel more like paintings. They can be viewed as positives using the inverse or negative setting on camera phones instantly combining old and new technologies. The difficulty and uncertainty in taking these images relates closely to the challenges of early photography, the process of washing away any automation, enabling the photographer to rediscover real feeling for the action of light.

Miraculous Beginnings

Walid Raad

One of the most important artists from the Middle East, Walid Raad says his work 'was in some ways made possible by the wars in Lebanon'. A series of monochrome blue photographs, the negatives for which were found under the rubble of war-ravaged Beirut, hide the images of anonymous men and women found dead in the Mediterranean. 24 black-and-white photographs provide the only record of the journey the historian Dr Fadl Fakhruri took across Europe. Upon their arrival in Lebanon all the works scheduled for a major retrospective are found to have shrunk to one hundredth of their original size. These are just some of the stories that accompany the photographs and video works produced by Raad in his various art projects as founder member of ‘The Atlas Group’.

"The Loving Gaze" will look at the work of some photographers who have regularly photographed those whom they love as part of their practice as artists. It will ask how this "intimate gaze" differs from the "detached gaze" of for example, the documentary or fashion photographer or the artist or academic whose intention is more objective. It will also address the problematics of shifting the context from private to public and the motivation, conscious and unconscious of making this work for public consumption.

Truth & Lies

Jillian Edelstein

Jillian Edelstein spent four years attending hearings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission up and down South Africa. She set up her camera in makeshift studios in rooms next door to where the hearings were held and visited people at home in the townships or deep in the countryside to take their portraits and listen to their stories. The selected images within this exhibition is a collective portrait of a country which, between the Sixties and Nineties, was engaged in a vicious struggle in which thousands were abducted, tortured and killed.

Time Out On Holiday Street (AIDS In Ukraine)

Simon Crofts

This series of portraits looks at some of the rarely-glimpsed people who, in one way or another, tend to AIDS patients in Kiev - parents, doctors, nurses, social workers, telephone helpline operators and so on. Many face discrimination for having contact with the infected due to widespread public ignorance, and many do not tell friends and neighbours where they work. These portraits are a testament to those who work on Holiday Street, and to the immense personal sacrifices they make every day. Exhibition launch and public talk on 12 Oct, 7 pm, with Oksana Shved of EveryChild Ukraine. £5/C £3

Traveller Life

Kirstine Fryd

Kirstine Fryd has spent the past year documenting Irish Travellers. In March 2009, she knocked on several doors on various settlements in South London. One family opened their door and invited her in. Since then, she has stayed with them on multiple occasions and joined them on many family celebrations, allowing her a glimpse into this elusive yet rich, vibrant and colourful culture.

The photographs in this exhibition explore the joys and challenges of Traveller life even as the familiar world around them continues to change. Poignant moments offer rare glimpses into Traveller vulnerability and silence.

Youn was born in 1981, in An-dong, South Korea. She is an artist who obsessively documents her everyday life and experiences with friends around the world through the instant medium of the Polaroid. With similar existential concerns to photographers such as Nan Goldin and Wolfgang Tillmans, it is raw emotion that she seeks to capture.
Mimi Youn graduated from The Slade School of Fine Art, with a MFA in Fine Art in 2008.

Night/Shift is a series of color photographs of offbeat New York cityscapes taken at twilight and dawn. Subdued tones and shadows reveal a geometry hidden beneath the visual distractions of daylight, creating an unsettling and evocative alternative view of the city. Lynn Saville (b. 1950, Durham, North Carolina) lives and works in New York City. Educated at Duke University and the Pratt Institute, USA.
