Final Major Project – The Exhibition

I started this blog to keep track of the developments of my final major project, but I’ve been so busy with my last year at uni that I completely forgot about it.

I handed in the project and I printed a selection of pictures to exhibit for my degree show, but I don’t feel like it is finished yet and I would like to carry on making it, meeting more performers and keeping in touch with the ones that I’ve photographed so far.

A first edit of this work has been selected to be exhibited at the Biscuit Factory in Newcastle for Helios VIII, a showcase of the very best talent in new and emerging photographic artists from the North of England.

A selection of images from this project will be exhibited in London during the first photography week of Free Range Art and Design Show at the Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane.

This Thursday there will be the opening of the show and if anyone is reading this blog, well, you’re welcome to come along, nick some free booze and celebrate (possibly having a look at the pictures in the meanwhile).
