Form Collective

I am proud to now be working as a member of Form, a new collective of artists from a variety of creative backgrounds who all engage with photography as part of their practice. We are working collaboratively with the support of our mentor, Nicola Shipley of Grain Photography Hub, to produce new work which can function both within the context of the collective and as stand alone projects. Through critical discourse and sharing of skills and resources we aim to produce diverse and thought-provoking work which could not have been achieved working as individuals.

Bathroom Darkroom Project Update

The Bathroom Darkroom Project involved turning one of the bathrooms in my shared rented house into a darkroom, opening up the house as subject matter and inviting artists in to make work on site. Work from the project can be found @bathroomdarkroomproject on Instagram.

We will be exhibiting the work produced in late April 2018 in the Grosvenor Gallery at Manchester School of Art, and to commemorate the project we will also be producing a publication combining the images with writing around the subject. If you would be interested in proposing a piece of writing for publication we are managing submissions through Curatorspace and would be interested to hear from you. We are also looking to interview anyone who has set up their own home darkroom, if you would be willing to answer a few questions please get in touch via [email protected]

Make/Shift Exhibition

Make/Shift was an exhibition curated by Harriet Broom and I as part of our roles as Teaching Assistants on the BA Photography course at Manchester School of Art. We exhibited third year work from the recent Reflect and Research module; which focuses on the development of practice through a phase of investigation and analysis. Taking the themes of this module into account we exhibited work from various stages of the creative process including sketchbooks, notebooks, installations, artist books and sound based pieces.
