The Brighton Photography Biennial Opens tonight October 3rd, kicking off a packed programme of exhibitions, talks and workshops. The Biennial runs from October 3rd – Nov 2nd 2014.
This year the festival opens up the idea of curation and co-creation, within a wider theme of 'Communities, Collectives and Collaboration', more info here: http://bpb.org.uk/2014/
I am one of 4 photographers commissioned by Photoworks and Brighton And Hove Libraries to make work in response to the theme, 'How Individuals Make Society Change' as part of the 'Evolving In Conversation' brief: http://bpb.org.uk/2014/event/evolving-in-conversation/
My response was to create a set of photographs portraying young people who had spoken out on issues of both personal and community importance, the series is called 'Young Advocates'.
The full series and work of other photographers responding to the commission can be seen at the Jubilee Library from tonight, details below:
