Our second Behind the Lens interview is with Derek Smith. Derek’s photographs of Teesside were exhibited at the Half Moon Gallery in 1976. His images showed the resilience of a community in the face of a rapidly de-industrialising Britain.

6.30 – 8.30pm, Four Corners Gallery
Collaged pictures or political weapons?
Acclaimed artists Peter Kennard and Loraine Leeson will be joining us in the gallery along with writer David Evans to discuss all things photomontage. We will be exploring the history, techniques and effects of photomontage, from darkroom collages to digital manipulation.
A fantastic event for anybody interested in the art of protest, radical culture or community activism.
Places are free but booking is essential.
