Now showing at Sheffield’s Bank Street Arts is the first instalment of In Camera – a series of photography and video exhibitions.
The current exhibition features thematically driven slideshows located around the gallery, displaying street photography, portraiture, landscapes and documentary work from photographers and videographers the world over (even Sheffield). The show has been curated and organised by James Dodd, and marks an expansion of the centre’s photographic activities.
I have a picture in this show – possibly the one used in the flyer above. The presentation runs until 10 May 2010 (the run has been extended since the flyers were produced). Other photographers featured include Chuck Patch and Kramer O’Neill.
The In Camera exhibition will be followed by a show of prints from Simon Roberts’ Motherland (10 May to 9 June 2010). The work is a result of Simon’s travels throughout Russia between July 2004 and August 2005, and is one of the most extensive photographic accounts of this vast country by a Westerner. The show consists of 15 large-scale prints.
“I hope Motherland may be read as a footnote to the current debate about Russian identity during a time of major geo-political, economic and social change. Ultimately these images are a celebration of Russia, aiming to deepen our understanding of a country and its people.” – Simon Roberts on Motherland
