What Is Evolving In Conversation?

EiC-Device---orangeBrighton & Hove Libraries have worked in partnership with Photoworks to commission photographer Chloe Dewe Mathews and emerging photographers Mary Freeman, Charlotte Ball, Gina Lundy and Daniel Regan. During summer 2014, they worked with young people from Brighton & Hove picking books, people or key moments as inspirations to make new work in response to themes of social change.

PhotoworksThe work is exhibited at Jubilee Library as part of Brighton Photo Biennial from 4 October – 2 November.

The purpose of the Join the Conversation showcase day on October 18th is to celebrate the work that young people and commissioned artists have been working on over the summer, responding to the theme how individuals make society change through photography.

They talked about their inspiration for the project and their process of deciding what to photograph. It was great to hear how much of a positive impact it’s had on their lives with many of them saying they’re now going to pursue photography as either a hobby or a career.
