6th July – 10th July 2017
As part of our professional development as emerging photographers, a small group from our course were offered a place to exhibit our work in a top London graduate show. Free Range is an Old Truman Brewery production, aiming to showcase graduate talent from a variety of courses at many universities in the UK. It is exciting to know that I will be exhibiting along side many talented others, that a wider audience will be viewing my work and it could potentially kick start my photography career. There is also the exciting idea that I could potentially meet others who are also working on tackling the stigma attached to disability; meaning we can combat the issue faster.
The University of Cumbria has selected 24 artists from BA (Hons) Photography and BA (Hons) Fine Art, and joined us together – naming our exhibition Modern Love. This title was chose for us by the University – as they are in control of the finance of the space and the curating of the show. As this is a large show where professionalism is key, I believe their control of the way in which we present our selves to the world is a good idea.
The work I will be displaying in the show will be my FMP – Disability Talks. For the show self-promotion is also necessary, meaning people can contact you in the future if interested. Because of this, I will be creating my own marketing material in case of any interest in my work. We are currently in the early stages of developing marketing material as a group however, watch this space!
