Late Fragment

Pippa Healy

Which objects will surround you in the final years of life? And what might they say about you ; about who you are, and who you were? What would you choose to take when moving from a house and home into just one room?

‘Late Fragment’ is a series of photographs taken in resident’s rooms in care homes. The project explores what residents keep with them, whether through necessity or comfort.

You can’t take your possessions with you, but some of them you take to the very end of the very end.

Hugo Elsewhere: The Jersey Studio and the photography of exile online

Victor Hugo and the Jersey Studio

Dr Jann Matlock, Senior Lecturer, UCL French and School of European Languages, Culture and Society

What is it about exile that inspires photography? This talk explores the earliest known exile photography, created in the studio formed by Victor Hugo’s family and friends in their exile on the Channel Island of Jersey between 1852 and 1855. In these years, the Hugo group turned exile into a photographic project, and in doing so, they transformed the history of photography.

Home Sweet Home

Anna Batchelor, Sarah Colson

Home Sweet Home is a guerilla exhibition of portrait photography and cross-stitch samplers that tell the story of a dispersed community. The community are the remaining residents of the Ferrier housing estate in south-east London, which is being gradually demolished. With emphasis on the human experience of regeneration, photographer Anna Batchelor has taken portraits of the remaining residents in the context of the changing estate. Designer Sarah Colson has fused cross-stitch embroidery with quotations from Ferrier residents and imagery from the estates environment. For this exhibition the images are posted onto the boarded up fronts of the Ferrier's empty houses.

Tom Leighton

Tom Leighton’s new works reveal the poetic beauty that can result from painstaking digital manipulation. Leighton has travelled through Europe, Asia and North America, building up an impressive body of photographic images that he then combines to make fantastical landscapes.

Laura Cuch

The life-changing experience of having an organ transplant has an impact on senses of identity. Some individuals have experienced taste, personality, or behavioral changes after an organ transplant, which they sometimes relate to the traits of their donors. Trans considers these new identities and how they are woven into personal narratives by the recipients. Trans is the third part of a trilogy following Sleepless (about people who sleep very little) and No Ma (about women who know for various reasons that they will never be mothers). In all three projects, the details of each image are arrived at collaboratively.

photographer and teacher: Francesca Sanlorenzo artists: students from the Art & Design department of Abbey Manor College over the last three years

This unique exhibition presents a series of photographic portraits of 16 year old young people from Abbey Manor College, a Centre of excellence based in Lewisham that offers vocational qualifications to students outside mainstream education. The photographs are my attempt to capture a glimpse of their personality at this point in their life as they are going through an important transformation into adulthood. The images also become a memory for us all before they leave the College. Alongside the photographic exploration of youth identity, large format self-portraits produced over the years by my former students are also exhibited.

Kate's Journal

Astrid Schulz

he project ‘Kate’s Journal’ started in January 2010 when Kate Sims was diagnosed with breast cancer. Despite her devastation she asked photographer Astrid Schulz to take some pictures of her, depicting the way she looked before the operation. Astrid suggested continuing the photo sessions during the different phases of treatment until full recovery. The result is a sensitive and compelling series of portraits.

The exhibition ‘Kate’s Journal’ and the incorporated events aim to give other cancer patient (and their next of kin) an insight into the treatment with a supportive note.
