Responding to a call out on Twitter by the RPS, it was super exciting to be involved in part I of the Royal Photographic Society, Representation on the line: (Un)framing our identities exhibition, in Chelsea in London. I visited the un-private view on the 29th May 2019 with a few fellow Blackpool photographers. I showed photographs of Kate Yates. Here are some impressions from that day (little did I know how much this exhibition was going to mean to me and my fellow Blackpool photographers that day. There were also a couple of local (1 & 2) newspaper articles about this event.
One of my photos was displayed at Format Festival in Derby at Quad. It formed the inspiration for one of the guests attending a workshop. I didn’t have time to attend but my sister and brother in law did!
This was in response to a call out on instagram:
15 – 21 March - Challenge 2: Cut It - Create a mosaic/collage picture or pattern, produced by arranging together pieces of a photograph.
Curated by Digital Participation Curator John Whall and Creative Wellbeing Co-ordinator Jane Hardstaff, FORMAT: Remix is FORMAT19’s participation exhibition inspired by the work of Kensuke Koike and the festival theme FOREVER//NOW. Participants are invited to rework, remake and remix images through a series of online and offline interactions with analogue and digital photographs and are designed to question the permanence of an image and it’s meaning to the owner.
Kunsthuis gallery did a call out on curatorspace for photographs relating to positive emotions.
We, as humans, have always faced uncertainty engaging with life and a resultant complex set of mechanisms have developed to help us navigate through this. Our emotional engagement with life is a powerful source of motivation, conscious or unconscious. Leaving aside the academic debates that underpin these concepts we, at Kunsthuis Gallery, would like to focus on the idea of positive emotions as the theme for our next exhibition.
Proud to be exhibiting at Kunsthuis Gallery this spring and summer. I visited the opening on the 5th April and it was great to meet the Dutch owner of Kunsthuis Gallery, Cecile Cremers.
