Photography and...

Following the success of our Photography and Language online event last Autumn we’re curating a new series of ‘Photography and…’ online events, inviting artists and professionals worldwide to join in discussions about photography’s role in the world today.

We’re kicking off the series with Photography and A Woman’s Work, taking place on Thursday 18th March, from 2pm. Joining us will be artists, curators and partners who participated in the two-year Creative Europe project which sought to uncover new insights through photography into the changing landscape of gender and work, stimulating debate about contemporary issues facing Europe.

Hot from the press, the A Woman’s Work legacy publication is available to buy here.

More details to be announced soon.

February Featured Artist

Maryam Wahid (b. 1995) is an award-winning freelance artist whose work explores her identity as a British Pakistani Muslim woman. She expresses the origins of the Pakistani community in her hometown Birmingham (UK) by examining her deeply rooted family history; and the mass integration of migrants within the United Kingdom. Her academic background in Art, Photography and Religious Studies alongside her fascination in cultural cognition and religious ideologies have progressively influenced her work. Her work explores the female identity, the history of the South Asian community in Britain and the notion of home and belonging.
