25 Sep Exhibitions and awards
Showing work on a gallery wall and to new audiences is always a great feeling and when these opportunities come along you have to grab them. I have recently had work shown in a number of places and would like to thank the organisations and curators that have helped make this happen.
Firstly, I was selected to show work at the Noorderlicht photo festival in The Netherlands, the festival ran a broad range of work under the title of ‘Data Rush’ so I was pleased to show my project ‘The Quantified Self‘ as part of this. The show is put on in an amazing warehouse space as you can see from the shot below.
Secondly, I have been selected for the Royal Photographic Society International print exhibition which opens from the 8th October to coincide with Photomonth. This is the second time I have had work selected in this competition, one which received entries comparable to the Taylor Wessing prize and only selects 100 images for an exhibition which tours internationally for a year.
The image is from a trip to Tanzania with the NGO Everychild who have been supporting a local organisation which provides shelter and education to homeless children. It was an emotional trip which I was honoured to be part of and it is wonderful to see the resulting work recognised in this way.
lastly, with support from theprintspace I ran a solo show of ‘The Quantified Self’. The work was always intended for the gallery wall so it was great to work with theprintspace to print, mount and hang the work in a full exhibition. The private view and exhibition attendance has been excellent and has already led to an offer to show the work at the Vogele cultural centre in Switzerland.
To top it all off, I am pleased to be able to share that I have been selected for the Magenta Flash-Forward awards, opening soon in Toronto, this juried competition selects a number of excellent photographers for an exhibition and publication. Congratulations to the other winners, its great to be amongst such great company.
