In the Light: Photographic works by James Barnor, Benji Reid, Alexis Peskine and Zana Masombuka
Thursday 8th September – Friday 30th September 2022
Between its invention - almost 200 years ago - and the post-modern present, artists have adopted the unique medium of photography in an astonishing variety of ways and to very different ends. From the 1960s onwards, photography within the African Diaspora has been adapted as a medium to construct and contextualise post-colonial narratives; as a tool to condition socio-political change; and as a means of exploring and expressing the intrinsic complexities of identity itself.
Workshops will explore the medium of photography with artist and educator Natalie Keymist alongside the themes of identity, portraiture and journeys.
Workshops are adapted for students of ALL ages!
Weekday mornings 10am-12pm (or 10am-11.30am or 10.30am-12pm for Early Years, SEN and KS1) : £100
Proudly South African: Exploration of Identity 6, 2018
