Radical Visions: Camerawork Revisited

IMG_2680

We are delighted to be showing at FORMAT19 International Photography Festival.  Our exhibition reactivates the archives of Camerawork magazine, situating its radical approach within the context of our current social and political moment.  

The exhibition explores Camerawork's focus on 'history from below': working lives and communities, protest movements and the use of photography in oppositional culture.  Archival touring exhibition posters are shown alongside.  

Our own era of austerity and Brexit has seen a revitalised interest in socially-engaged photography. Camerawork Revisited brings together archival material with recent work by six documentary photographers.  Curated by Four Corners in collaboration with Invisible Britain, with artists Rob Clayton, Joanne Coates, Les Monaghan, J A Mortram, Nicola Muirhead and Fiona Yaron-Field.

The exhibition runs at Pickford's House, Derby, 15 March-4 May.
