Brighton Photo Fringe 2010 brochure

Page 1

2 October – 14 November 2010 1




Brighton Photo Fringe 2010 At its inception, in 2003, the Brighton Photo Fringe was made up of a group of four photographers discussing the promotional possibilities offered by the Brighton Photo Biennial for themselves and to other photographers in the town. I was lucky enough to be one of those photographers and have been privileged enough to have a role in the Fringe since. The meeting was developed into an idea over three months and the first Photo Fringe was made up of less than thirty exhibitions and events brought together in a brochure paid for by the participating photographers. Seven years later, and in its fourth event, the Fringe is now made up of over one hundred and thirty exhibitions and events including a diverse range of work made and presented by photographers from many different backgrounds and levels of experience.


The Fringe works with photographers and curators who have attained international recognition as well as those who are exhibiting their work or arranging photographic exhibitions for the first time - all are welcome to show their work and to celebrate photography as part of this extraordinary event. It is, I believe, one of the largest and most accessible celebrations of photography in the world and is a credit to the enthusiasm and the ongoing vision of the organisers, Helen Cammock and Woodrow Kernohan, and the many participants, all of whom work towards the festival in a spirit of enthusiasm, generosity and collaborative effort. I am still enormously proud and exited to be involved and constantly amazed by the effort put in to this expanding and innovative event. The Fringe is normally centred in the city of Brighton & Hove, but this year we are pleased to welcome groups from Hastings & St Leonards and Chichester; extending the event east and west along the south coast. We are also excited to welcome new groups of photographers from outside of the region from cities across the UK and, increasingly, from across the globe. As part of this year’s Fringe we are particularly pleased to welcome a group of photographers from Africa, whose exhibition and trip to Brighton are generously supported by the British Council and whose involvement is adding again to the rich mix of voices and approaches to photographic practice making up the Brighton Photo Fringe.

BRIGHTON PHOTO FRINGE 2010 A Calmer Exchange Zoë Panting 5 – 14 Nov Fri – Sun 12.00 – 17.00 Fringe Focus The Old Co-op Building 94-101 London Road Brighton BN1 4LB

Above the Books Axel Hesslenberg 2 Oct – 14 Nov Mon – Sat 09.30 – 18.00 Sun 11.00 – 16.30 City Books 23 Western Road Hove BN13 1AF


A Calmer Exchange explores the power of the landscape to transform psychological states. Revealed by the darkroom process, long exposures echo moments of standing still within the forest, of being absorbed into a state of calm and heightened awareness by colour, light, and shade.

This exhibition plays with the partial understanding readers have about the book they buy. Each photograph shows fragments and traces that are or can be part of a greater narrative. Their intent is to act as entry points and keys, inviting viewers to follow their own imagination.

Abreast of Stress Melanie Clark 2 – 17 Oct Fri – Sun 12.00 – 17.00 Fringe Focus The Old Co-op Building 94-101 London Road Brighton BN1 4LB

1 in 8 women in Britain are devastated by a breast cancer diagnosis. This work arose due to my own experience and evolved through collaboration with members from my local support group. I’ve attempted to express the diverse feelings of the individual regarding the disease, treatment and ‘survivorship’.

Bascom Avenue: The Unloved Heart of San Jose, California Kit Fordham 2 – 24 Oct Mon – Fri 12.00 – 23.00 Sat – Sun 09.00 – 23.00 JB’s American Diner 31 Kings Road Brighton BN1 1NR

Google HQ, gluten-free ciabattas and Segway green personal transporters? Not this side of Silicon Valley. Here Valley Gold & Silver Exchange pawn shop, spicy fish tacos and immaculate 1970 Chevys take their place in Bascom Avenue’s bohemian, multi-ethnic world. This photography exhibition reveals a Silicon Valley you wouldn’t imagine - an Arabic TV station broadcast from a defunct Art Deco cinema, rose-covered weatherboard cottages, a Pakistani-trained engineer selling classic tailfin automobiles - challenging preconceptions of InfoTech’s effect on daily life by turning the lens upon its doorstep. Bascom Avenue is counter-stereotype, counter-trend: an analogue crossroads in the heart of digital Silicon Valley.

After Portia Webb 2 – 30 Oct Fri – Sun 13.00 – 17.00 a&e Gallery 38 Cheltenham Place Brighton BN3 4AB

In a series of photographs taken in the usually unseen moments after childbirth, Portia Webb explores the duality of the perception of birth, as an intimate and yet violent occurrence. Whilst void of human life, her evocative photographs contain signs and paraphernalia of the event whilst concealing a narrative.




BRIGHTON PHOTO FRINGE 2010 Beginnings Lucy Jo Brown 2 Oct – 14 Nov Mon – Fri 07.30 – 19.30 Spinelli Coffee 111 St James Street Brighton BN2 1TH

‘Beginnings’ unites starting points for personal projects that remain unfinished. These images are beginnings of thoughts, emotions or themes which have now passed. Perhaps in themselves they are already complete or there will come a time to explore them further.

BETTER in TUNE Herman van den Boom 2 – 17 Oct Fri – Sun 12.00 – 17.00 Fringe Focus The Old Co-op Building 94 – 101 London Road Brighton BN1 4LB

Imaginitive Lives/Lives of the Imagination. A photography project about Car-tuning and Car-babes. The underlying idea of the project is that of the world as a desire representation in a mediated society. The project was made possible by a generous grant by the Dutch Foundation of the Arts and the Sem Presser Foundation in Amsterdam.

Blair’s Boy Tom Wichelow 10 – 15 Oct Sun 10:00 – 16:00 Mon – Fri 09:30 – 17:30 Opening night Saturday 9th Oct 6-9pm Bands etc Brighton Media Centre Gallery 15 – 17 Middle Street Brighton BN1 1AL

Belongings Judith Ricketts 2 – 17 Oct Fri – Sun 12.00 – 17.00 Fringe Focus The Old Co-op Building 94 – 101 London Road Brighton BN1 4LB

Judith Ricketts is an experimental photographer. Her current series of semi abstract works are based on objects that retain traces of memory; someone's time, someone's place. The work is a play on scale and perception, what it leaves out is as important as what is included, what it sends to the back is as important as what it brings to the fore. Judith trained at University College London, works as an interior architect and undertakes photographic commissions specialising in producing large scale images for commercial and residential interiors.

A weeklong multimedia exhibition inspired by the ending of the New-Labour era. New work by Tom Wichelow made during a year long collaborative project with a Brighton adolescent who allowed unrestricted access to his life as he struggled with independence and the criminal justice system. Beginning in May 2009, it ends with his release from Feltham Young Offenders Institution on election day 2010. It takes the form of a photo essay with accompanying films, projections and ephemera.

“I am really looking forward to my first exhibition in Brighton. My work is dramatic and sits well in both traditional and contemporary spaces.”

CompARTment Unit 38 The Open Market Marshalls Row London Road Brighton BN1 4JS

Lack of light is usually a stumbling block for the perfect photograph but in Bright Nights the nocturnal light opens up a whole new world to be explored. Bright Nights brings together for the first time the work of four Brighton based artists whose creative imagery explores the realms of low light level photography during the hours of darkness. You are invited to steal a glimpse of this world at the Bright Nights projection installation.

Brighton Threads is a collection of portraits taken in Brighton for Source magazine’s trend spotting section. Kevin has been trend spotting for the magazine since January 2010. The images are montages made out of separate prints taken on a Lomo LCA a cult Russian film camera. Kevin’s trend spotting photos have been written about by Photo Pro Magazine and American Photo Magazine as examples of a unique way to shoot trend spotting pictures.

CARCERI Martin Pover 5 Nov - 14 Nov Fri – Sun 12.00 – 17.00 Fringe Focus The Old Co-op Building 94 – 101 London Road Brighton BN1 4LB The title comes from Piranesi’s series of etchings of 1750 which depict fantastical prisons and explore the psychological dynamics of social control and perspective. The project consists of photographs of empty cages. The abandoned spaces anticipate action and drama, but are imbued with an inescapable finality. The arresting geometry of the zoo architecture governs the choice of view-point, and a faux-reality of ‘the wild’ is exposed. Far from offering a sublime experience, the contemporary zoo is revealed as tableaux and artifice.

Contra-invention Mocksim Co-rated by Huw Bartlett 27 Oct – 14 Nov Daily 10.30 – 17.30 Brighton Media Centre Friese-Greene Gallery Friese-Greene House 15 – 17 Middle Street Brighton BN1 1AL

Photographs. Investigations. Unscientific, incomprehensive. The most important industry: Parking Fines? Many hate Traffic-Wardens. Mocksim does not. He despises cars. Automobiles are proof that what’s best isn’t always a win in the Market Place. The Internal Combustion Engine even, is inelegant, compared with the beautiful Gas Turbine or bicycle. Cars barely work. Traffic-Wardens seem interested in cars. The eyes of the Traffic-Warden may be of value, shake things up. To be read in Death Rattle rhythm.

Closer Stuart Griffiths 2 Oct – 14 Nov Tue – Sun 11.00 – 17.00 Phoenix Brighton 10 – 14 Waterloo Place Brighton BN2 9NB

Brighton Photo Fringe and Phoenix Brighton are pleased to present Closer, an exhibition of photographs by Stuart Griffiths.

Griffiths began taking photographs when he was a young soldier and this exhibition explores his personal feelings towards war and conflict.

Sophie Molins Open 24/7 (Where have we come from where are we going to?) We have evolved from primates. Their image is everywhere: in the press; on the web; in shops; in the streets. We use them as logos, as security blankets, as decoration and in experiments. They represent our crazy world- our desires, needs, preoccupations, our creativity, our quirks as a species, and our consumption. They ask us ‘what are we evolving to?’

Dripping ChERries Svetlana K-Lie, curated by Angela Eames 2 Oct – 14 Nov Daily 12.00 – 19.00 Cafe des Artistes 10 Phoenix Place Lewes BN7 2QJ

I feel alienated, out of kilter, misplaced. I am faced only with shoes, feet and lower garment. She’s disappearing from my gaze - blue-sky-bound off rickety foothold. Dense, heavy, black weighs down upon crunchy snow, a tantalising balance between an uncomfortable negotiation of the terrain and possible descent. I feel her power - folded arms, foursquare stance, unnamed. Her personality is hidden. Is she really in control and of self, sensuality and sexuality? Pride and confidence exude as her bodice is raised to present black lace and dripping cherries. I am forced to look up and at I am beneath.

Coachwerks 19 Hollingdean Terrace Brighton BN17HB

7 photographers, coming together for a collective exhibition, displaying new and selected works, each bringing a unique interpretation of the theme "Ephemeral". "Photography is a paradox; freezing time is impossible, and the photograph seems to do it.. but.. the photograph itself will degrade and decay, and in the end is subject to the pull of time." A special encounter in an unusual and exciting venue. Opening night party with live music and home-made pizza.

We're perpetually on the run for that better path, better shape, better colour, better taste, better feel, better view, better someone, better life! Bauman's liquid modernity, liquid love, liquid life, liquid fear, and liquid times have overtaken our identities. Can we learn to be imperfectly content? To stop chasing our feet?

Antonsson uses a collage technique often reinterpreting social, political and artistic movements throughout the 1960s and 1970s, with a particular focus on the relationship of photography to identity and representation. She is based in Stockholm and has exhibited internationally since the early 1990s.

FORECAST captures an extraordinary range of atmospheric seascapes from a single position at West Wittering beach on the West Sussex coast. Shot in different weather conditions, in all seasons, over the period of a year, the series uses the horizon as a focal point to link the changing hues and textures of the sea and sky. This series interrogates the progress of time: the moment past, the present captured, the future forecast.

The Old Tin Drum 43 St James Street Brighton BN2 1RG

The series Girls UnScene, deliberately taken without the consent of the subjects, reveals the hidden details of, and the exchanges and interactions between, females in night-club toilets, showing how them in unguarded moments when behind closed doors. Captured from the “Ladies” in late night venues in London & Brighton.

Many of the subjects were grown from seed in the photographer's garden specifically to photograph.

Funny Games Elzbieta Buslowska 5 Nov – 14 Nov Fri – Sun 12.00 – 17.00 Fringe Focus The Old Co-op Building 94 – 101 London Road Brighton BN1 4LB

Photographs are selected from an ongoing project negotiating the space-time of a photographic image where its conventions and expectations are explored creatively and critically.

Haselgrove and Jigsaw Anna Bush Crews 5 – 14 Nov Fri – Sun 12.00 – 17.00 Fringe Focus The Old Co-op Building 94 – 101 London Road Brighton BN1 4LB


The photographs in this digital exhibition were taken during two trips: the first following tropical storm Fay and hurricanes Gustav, Hanna and Ike in 2008; the second following the earthquake in January this year.

Future Imperfect

Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere and is prone to natural disasters.

Works of found photographs, abstracted and 3-D through their techno-materiality, present recognisable glimpses of the past, though only partly revealed. The random placement of photographs mimics the random workings of memory, the moving eye weaving together imagined narratives. The photographic object becomes unique as was the moment of its “conception”.





I Could be your Daughter

Nigel Imi 2 Oct – 13 Nov Mon – Sat 08.30 – 17.00 Café One Ten 109c Dyke Road Seven Dials Brighton BN1 3TE Librarian by profession, Nigel Imi is an amateur photographic artist who has never shown before, but his pictures are a fascinating glimpse into how he sees the world around him. Quiet and unassuming, he is never without his camera. This show contains strong architectural images of London, reflecting a powerful narrative about time and place, yet often without people. The images are taken as happenstance on his way to somewhere else.

Philip J. Bigg 22 Oct – 31 Oct Fri – Sun 12.00 – 17.00 Fringe Focus The Old Co-op Building 94 – 101 London Road Brighton BN1 4LB

During a two year journey around Asia I was struck by the sexualisation of females. I explore roles such as the Taiwanese Betel Nut Beauties (pictured) who dress provocatively to increase their sales. Does the male gaze influence their dress sense? Are females empowering themselves or being sexploited?

The Manor 52 Gardner Street Brighton BN1 1UN

This exhibition of both still and moving images by 5 LCC Photography MA graduates addresses themes ranging from pregnancy and maternal ambivalence and fantasies to the complex familial relationships of both adults and children to explore the family as a structural, emotional, temporal and performative entity. Whether witty, literal or allegorical, the works draw upon the psychological, mundane, private and personal to investigate representations and understandings of the family both art-historically and within contemporary culture.


In between Janine Boyer 2 Oct – 17 Oct Fri – Sun 12.00 – 17.00 Fringe Focus The Old Co-op Building 94 – 101 London Road Brighton BN1 4LB

JOURNEY Richard Foot 22 Oct – 31 Oct Fri – Sun 12.00 – 17.00 Fringe Focus The Old Co-op Building 94 – 101 London Road Brighton BN1 4LB


My photographs are concerned with exploring interior, urban spaces. These abandoned building and sealed rooms are suffused with a disturbed sense of self, metaphors of loss and abandonment, what Freud referred to as the unheimliche, the unhomely, something familiar but which has become alienated through the process of repression. This exhibition takes you on a journey through cities that are devoid of people, exploring the places we surround ourselves with. Using the unique aesthetic of Polaroid media Richard has photographed a variety of subjects which, when brought together create a new and imaginary place.

Lewis’s Fifth Floor: A Department Story Stephen King 2 Oct – 17 Oct Fri – Sun 12.00 – 17.00 Fringe Focus The Old Co-op Building 94 – 101 London Road Brighton BN1 4LB

The fifth floor of Lewis’s Department Store was once the place to go in Liverpool to experience luxurious shopping, fine dining and pampering. After being closed to the public for 30 years, it remained a space frozen in time. Stephen King spent several months creating a series of still lives and portraits of staff, from this vast forgotten floor that told of past opulence and glamour, through a veil of neglect.

2 Oct – 30 Nov Daily 12:00 - 18:00 Brighton and Hove Community Radio Station, 10a Fleet Street, Brighton, BN1 4ZE

Visitors seek to rub shoulders with the unknown, absorbing fragments of truth from a place that is both real and illusory. This series of Prussian blue prints explores the uniformly barricaded facades of Rennes-Le-Chateau, which are ubiquitous during the one week of the year that it is ‘closed‘.

Questioning consciousness, the universe and perhaps what is beyond what does it all mean? The metaphor is a never ending, maths book made out of onionskins. Ask one question and another one is just underneath the surface waiting to be discovered. Mounted pieces and limited edition books series of Lawrence’s work.

Live in Translation Tatsumi Orimoto 2 Oct – 14 Nov Daily 24/7 Sites within the city

In this series of images originally captured before 9/11, Lukas Werth presents a cross-cultural counterpoint to media impressions of daily life in the Islamic world. Contact printed in gold, casein and Prussian blue from original in-camera 10 x 8 negatives, these photographs challenge placement in time and expose deep inter-faith links.

Martin Burton Photography at Due South Martin James Burton 6 Sep – 15 Nov Daily 12.00 – 15.30, 18.00 – 21.30 Due South 139 Kings Road Arches Brighton Beach Brighton BN1 2FN

A selection of photographs taken from various projects consisting of reportage, portraits and landscape photographs. Martin James Burton images present a feeling of isolation and disconnection. They may be bare and confrontational or busy and unsettling. They look different from the world we see it.


Shot with three different models, “Masks” is a series inspired by readings of Judith Butler on the performance/performativity of gender and an investigation of the kind of face women are relentlessly encouraged to show the world: smooth, ageless, indistinguishable, bland.

Michael Ormerod: States of America

Nothing is in the Place

Michael Ormerod

90s Britain in photographs from Ecstasy to Prozac from Thatcher to Blair selected by Jason Evans

2 Oct – 14 Nov Mon – Sat 10.00 – 18.00 Sun 10.30 – 16.30

The first exhibition in nearly a decade for one of British photography’s most powerful and distinctive voices whose career was tragically cut short in a road accident in 1991. Fascinated by the American image, Ormerod took to the Mid-West to find a land where the American Dream had turned sour. His images capture a strange juxtaposition of an American beauty tainted by a hidden sense of menace and corruption. ‘States of America’ was published shortly after he died.

Portraits in collaboration with the photographer and the sitters. The subjects select their location whether it is private, public, or intimate space. It began 2005 - a documenting project which looks at ‘the self’ as a raw individual as well as their response to society. ‘The self’ is portrayed with an element of exposing their ‘identity’

Mo.tion is about people and objects in motion as well as the photographers being in motion through their travels in Cuba, China, Haiti, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Mozambique, Australia and France. Instead of traveling around the world, the traveler becomes stationary and it is the world around him that moves.

Nothing is in the Place’ is a subjective survey that remembers life in 1990’s Britain. The show is an introduction to some of the photography that was made at that time offering glimpses of political unrest, social upheaval and analogue youth culture. Everyday lows jostle with esoteric highs to create a compulsive parade. The show is presented in a modular, editorial style and the photographers featured generously allowed the curator to make new versions of their work, often very different from the original contexts and formats intended for the images.

Stephen Bull 2 Oct – 14 Nov 24 hours online Stephen Bull lives in the centre of Brighton. But instead of photographing the city itself, Bull’s avatar has taken virtual photographs of New Brighton, the version of Brighton within the online world Second Life. Paralleling Martin Parr’s commissions for the Brighton Photo Biennial 2010 (and Parr’s own series The Last Resort), for the Brighton Photo Fringe Bull has commissioned his avatar to send back Postcards From New Brighton – and in the process rediscovered Brighton as an outsider.

This exhibition explores how photographs can, through helping people verbalise what is difficult for them to speak about, lead to learning and healing. It includes participants from the Public Centre for Mental Health, Lucca, Italy (Carmine Parella) the Finnish Phototherapy Association (Leena Koulou), Roehampton University, UK (Del Loewenthal), and Turku University, Finland (Ulla Halkola and Tarja Koffert); and is part of a Leonardo Lifelong Learning Programme.

Sunny Side Up reinvents commonplace still life images by developing photographs onto a unique medium: eggs. The series juxtaposes tidy, banal domestic objects with the unpredictable beauty of the image in the egg. Beyond historical references to the origins of photography (albumin) and painting (tempera), the work is an ironic comment on woman’s aspiration (or her aversion) to the role of domestic goddess.

"Light glorifies everything. It transforms and ennobles the most commonplace and ordinary subjects. The object is nothing; light is everything." Leonard Misonne Share the sublime experience of being seduced by light. Transitions at Twilight is an exhibition dedicated to the subtle transformation of the ordinary to the extraordinary through a momentary confluence of illumination and the banal. Several local photographers present their response to such fleeting moments of prodigious beauty in a new artistic venue.

Street photography can hold a mirror up to society, recording street culture in a particular time and place or capturing intimate human moments and gestures. The results can be honest, suspect, ironic, insightful and poetic. On Brighton’s seafront, we’ll snap people unawares before letting them decide what we do with their portrait. Not straying from traditional styles of street photographers, we tip our hats to a respected genre while commenting on the growing restrictions on citizen photography.

As a photographer I’ve always been attracted to derelict spaces. Echoes of old buildings, which a camera can successfully capture and suspend in time. Photography is being a visual historian, capturing a secret glimpse of an abandoned life, before the walls are inevitably auctioned off, stripped and prepared for reinvention.

Three photographers come together under the concept of invisibility. Mersh has chosen to highlight a member of a religious group, living externally from, invisible to, her sisterhood. Margerison records waiting staff, who choose professional invisibility. Collins presents portraits of those who live invisibly, evading domestic violence.

A quarter of British exsoldiers sleep rough after they leave the forces. ISOLATION’s elegance gives poetic backdrop to dignity and forbearance. Men who bravely take what the world deals them. The soldiers’ words are complemented by an evocative landscape of imagery, which glosses human stories with an atmospheric scarred beauty.

A collection of urban landscapes from Hastings to Brighton, Low Season looks at how local resort towns failed to adapt to the loss of the traditional English seaside tourist and are now attempting to reinvent themselves for a new generation of cultural and environmental visitors and residents.

Anderson will be showing a selection of landscapes taken during assignments over recent years.


Site specific installation of digital prints in bus shelters. Accessible, everyday places where time is spent daydreaming, contemplating - waiting. Internal spaces marked by public structures. An exploration of the transient, of time passing.

Every blink of his eyes takes Talla closer to blindness Talla is just five. He has trachoma, a painful eye disease which can lead to a lifetime of blindness. Repeated infections cause the eyelashes to turn inwards and slowly and painfully every blink damages the eye and leads to blindness. Trachoma can be treated effectively in its early stages with a course of ointment costing just 50p – but for millions of people this is still too much.
