  FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 EXHIBITION LISTINGS JANUARY - JULY 2013

CURRENT

Havana
By Ron Bambridge
Until 13 February 2013

AOP Member Ron Bambridge set himself a personal assignment to explore the old town of Vieja in Havana, Cuba.  What interested Bambridge as a photographer was how Havana is suspended in a time zone, this being what drew him to want to photograph the city.  Bambridge's passion for the city is showcased in his project of 20 images.

For this Hungarian Arts Foundation (NKA) supported project, Terri Potoczna advertised for Roma volunteers to choose a person from a selection of famous paintings whose appearance they would like to “try on”.    She went all over Hungary to meet them and recorded the discussion about their choices as well as their comments about Roma identity.

I belong Jarrow
By Chris Harrison
14 March – 10 April 2013

Chris Harrison was born and bought up in Jarrow, a tough industrial town on the south bank of the river Tyne. It's where he calls home.  Since becoming estranged from Jarrow through himself and his family moving away, Harrison has been forced to think about who he is and where he belongs.  This selection of images showcases Harrison's memories of the places and people still living in Jarrow.

‘Unseen World - A Series of Sideways Glances
Nick Dunmur, Lottie Davies, Sean Johnson, Martin Brent & Edward Webb
11 March – 08 May 2013

Reluctant to throw away 5 rolls of unused transparency film (albeit, passed the expiry date), AOP member, Sean Johnson came up with the idea of inviting four other AOP photographers to collaborate in a small project, using one of the 5 rolls of film each.

Sean's idea was that each photographer should walk a route normally driven by car, hence the 'Unseen World' title of the collaboration. In addition to that, however, Sean also sent out a series of 5 sealed envelopes to each participant, asking that each fellow member should open only one. In this envelope were instructions relating specifically to how the photographer should negotiate that route.

The Spirit of Brooklands

by Douglas Kurn
09 May – 05 June 2013

Brooklands was the worlds first ever purpose built motor racing track, and the scene of the first British Grand Prix. During it’s time many land speed records were broken there, and Brooklands became a major centre for automotive technology and development.  The Spirit of Brooklands is a project undertaken by photographer Douglas Kurn, to document the remains of the circuit, and areas where the track has been removed but there has been an acknowledgment of its existence.

India 2012

By Philip James
06 June – 03 July 2013

Phil James was commissioned to travel to Uttar Pradesh in India to shoot a documentary for Project Mala, a charity action programme for the elimination of child labour from the hand knotted carpet industry.
Whilst he was travelling through the area – Phil was overwhelmed by the beautiful landscape and the colours of the traditional Indian life often captured by photographers. But he was also truly inspired by the family life he witnessed, which was so different to his own upbringing and that of his role as a father in the 21st century.
