I was invited to a private view last night of the MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography (ONLINE MODE) end of course show entitled Beyond Borders.
The Exhibition is on from 10th March – 1st April 2010, Monday to Friday 9am-7pm.
At THE PRINTSPACE GALLERY
74 Kingsland road, E2 8DL London
This is the about the show text from their website:
A Swedish photographer based in England and working in Kaliningrad, Lukashenka’s Belarus seen through the eyes of an American photographer living in Sweden, a disparate collection of Londoners photographing their own visions of London and an insider’s view of the divided communities living in the coal mining region of West Virginia. These are just some of the stories in Beyond Borders, an exhibition featuring the work of 15 very different photographers from eight countries on show in London’s Printspace gallery from March 11 until March 31.
Shot on everything from medium format cameras to mobile phones, and with genres including experimental street photography, portraiture and traditional in-your-face photojournalism, Beyond Borders represents the collective results of the first ever online master’s degree course in photojournalism and documentary photography at the London College of Communication, a bold and groundbreaking experiment reflecting the current monumental changes within the industry.
I was their to support two of the participants whom I now socially, Anna Johansson and Kate Hooper. It was a good show, photojournalism is not my field and maybe not up on current trends etc but the images were interesting, the images fitted the space well and produced to a high standard. It was also a very busy evening as you can see from the images, it was hard to capture the work well at all, so you will have to go to the show rather than rely on my images!.
