More than excited that my images (through curatorspace) got chosen to be exhibited in the USA in Jamestown, in the state of New York till end of July 2019. Responding to the theme of Blue Mind. Blue Mind is “a mildly meditative state characterized by calm, peace, unity, and a sense of general happiness and satisfaction with life in the moment”.
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.
