Prompted by the continuing shift towards video capable DSLRs and the explosion of online video content, more and more still photographers are shooting video and making their own short films. To celebrate this Photofusion would like to host a season of short films. Whether you are already making short films or you are taking your first steps into film-making; if you create video installations for gallery spaces, if you use still photography to create photo-films, time-lapse photography, or stop-frame animations, or if your approach to film-making is influenced by your knowledge and experience of still photography; then we are interested Read More...

Photofusion’s Private view was busy, tasty and a lively atmosphere.

We’d like to thank everyone who came for making it such a fantastic evening! Read More...

Gerry McCulloch is a Photographer, Cinematographer and Film Lecturer at Goldsmiths. He is currently pursuing a five-year project based in Singapore called Isolates of Valid Perception – a still and moving-image project that explores subjective relationships between consciousness and its appearing objects: Established photographic terminology is replete with the language of aggressive material acquisition: we ‘take’ pictures; we ‘shoot’ photographs and films; we ‘capture’ images. We unthinkingly construct subjects as objects, perpetuating stereotypical forms of looking and promoting knowledges as commodities to be acquired, rather than as sites of engagement that contain the potential to uncover meaningful truths about our Read More...

“In a city where we are so crushed together we can barely breathe I often find it bizarre that we don’t take the time to look up from our i-phones and chat to the people in the bus queue (If you’re stuck for material there’s always the weather to moan about) or even the people on our doorstep. Photographer Tom Leighton’s new exhibition ‘Picture the Block’ endeavours to break the neighbour silence by getting to know his own and using them as models for his latest project.” (South London Art Map). Picture the block is a series about my neighbours. Read More...

Geometry + Geology is an exploration of the formal and expressive affinities between Brutalist architecture and glaciated rock formations in northern England. The particular similarities I want to depict are the sense of sublime scale and monolithic bleakness. The rough, weather-stained face of the shuttered concrete resembles the irregularities found in the erosion-scarred terrain of mountain rock. The darkness of the material in wet and grey weather matches that of the frequently dour conditions of the mountains. The shadowy nooks and crevices inspire trepidation and invite exploration. In The Seven Lamps of Architecture, Ruskin writes of the significance of ‘power’ Read More...

The eternal and the ephemeral, past and future, melancholy and devotion: i used to. represents a state of tension between opposites that come together in harmonious union. This is a project which, through photography and fashion, celebrates the bond between the artist and her memory, driven by an inspiration directly linked to old memories and to a feeling of nostalgia for her homeland. Valeria Cherchi was born in Sardinia, and has been dedicating herself to photography for years. Her project, i used to., initially conceived as a fashion story is set in Sardinia, in the evocative atmosphere of the places Read More...

On the 28th April 2012, a centuries-old way of life came to an end as the porters, who have been in existence since Billingsgate started trading in 1699, had their licenses withdrawn by the City of London Corporation. Long-established rights and working practices – and a vibrant culture handed down for generations – were all swept away overnight to be replaced by cheaper casual labour. Thus, a cut in economic cost was achieved through an increase in human cost by degrading the workforce at the market. The City recognised the potential value of the land occupied by the Billingsgate fish Read More...

The images are taken from the series that documents the demolition of a housing estate in East London. As residents were moved out of each apartment, it was bricked up. Slowly the buildings emptied and the rate of decay increased. When the process of demolition actually started the job was to reopen each flat. The triptych of images show three recently unsealed living rooms, as they had been left years before. he series reminds us of the impermanence of our fragile existence. Nothing is forever and choices that seem the utmost importance fade into triviality with the benefit of hindsight Read More...

Cinzia D’Ambrosi is a documentary photographer whose extensive ability and experience to engage and enter various communities has rendered her photography work of a great depth and unique vision. Cinzia centres her main body of work on reaching out to those who are marginalized by society and she often spends long time with her subjects to bring to light her investigations on a deeper level. Her motivation is to influence decision makers and increase awareness on social issues through her photo work. She has taken part or initiated in photo campaigns such as the Health and Safety at work campaign Read More...

Jay looking outdoor. She is a British-born woman who underwent Female Genital Mutilation when she was 15 years old. She never spoke about it to anyone until the day she started suffering from flashbacks and nightmares ten years later approximately. It was then that she started her journey, a long journey to heal her wounds. “I am a survivor, not a victim“ with these words Jay describes her experience of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). She is a British-born woman who was cut when she was 15 years old. She never spoke about it to anyone until the day she started Read More...

Stories East of the River takes an intimate journey into the lives of the new generation growing up in the unrecognised country of Transdniester, the breakaway territory between Moldova and Ukraine in Eastern Europe. Transdniester announced its secession from Moldova in September 1990 due to ethnic tensions and political differences. After a short but violent civil war, Transdniester has been governed defacto for 21 years as the self-elected Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic but still remains unrecognised by the international community. The first generation to grow up within the political disharmony are deeply proud to be Russian but are starting to question Read More...

The Land of Milk and Honey This body of work is about the much deliberated American journey, the search for a better life and people’s connection with the land. It was made during an artist residency at the Museum of Friends in Southern Colorado, where the Huajatollas (breasts of the earth) twin peaks dominate the skyline. They have long been sacred to the Native Americans and held myths of promised lands. This project builds a portrait of a region that has attracted many groups over the years looking for a new beginning. There has been a constant flux of migration Read More...

In 2011 I was commission to produce a local project of my choice in Herefordshire. I proposed to look at Hereford’s local waterway: The River Wye. The river starts in Wales and snakes across the English & Welsh border through Herefordshire, right through Hereford town, and down along into the Bristol Channel. I travelled the length of it last year, by foot for a lot of it, during many visits over the space of six months. I got to know the river very well, and much of the local community that did or didn’t use it. I discovered it was Read More...

There are over 8.3 million dogs in the UK. 31% of households in the UK own a dog, 39% of whom have replaced their partner with a dog 20% of owners bought their dog for companionship 5% bought their dog for security My curiosity in dogs and their owners was aroused by these statistics. I was surprised that over 30% of UK households own a dog and wanted to discover more about these ‘households’ and their canine pets. The aim in this on-going series is to carry out a survey of dog owners from different socio-economic groups and ages and Read More...

For the past 12 months I have been photographing commuters on their way to and from work within the ‘square mile’ in London. Every weekday 350,000 commuters rush their was to the City, crammed onto trains and buses and spilling onto the streets. The flood of commuters creates a body of people taking on a glacial like quality that snakes through the streets of the City, quietly but firmly making it’s way through the street under a low murmur. Communication is kept to the bare minimum and is rarely vociferous, the odd glance or flinch punctuates the solemn stoney poker Read More...

Every year around six million pilgrims flock to Lourdes in the foothills of the Pyrenees. There they visit the grotto, bathe in holy water at the baths, attend mass and gather each evening for the candlelight procession. Stemming from a young peasant girl’s apparition of the Virgin Mary in 1858, Lourdes has become a major destination of Catholic tourism and pilgrimage. It’s easy have a cynical view of Lourdes with its crass commercialisation, endless rosaries and glow?in­?the dark Virgin Mary’s, but beyond this lies an incredibly strong faith and a beautiful landscape where people come to retreat and find peace. Read More...

The series ‘Red Street’ is a visual map of Oxford Street, a symbol of London’s shopping epicenter and a constant river of change. The project is an exploration of the urban and commercial landscape and our interaction with it, looking for !eeting moments of juxtaposition and serendipity within my constructed framework and building up an ever evolving snapshot of London’s consumer centre. Oxford Street shouts for attention and needless to say the colour red is it’s dominant alate. I followed the red route to see where it would lead me… Amit Lennon specialises in intimate and individualistic portraits. His subjects, Read More...

We’ve all tossed a pebble in a pond or stream, and watched the pattern of ripples spread out. The act itself is simple enough, an innocent minor pleasure. It bears repetition, endlessly the same but endlessly different. Each pattern is as exquisitely complex as it is ephemeral. What is beyond the eye’s ability to take in is swallowed up again by the glassy surface, barely understood before it is gone. The work springs from a desire to catch something of this simple pleasure, to unravel a part of the confusion and present it as a permanent trace of what has Read More...

This project was started this year, of 2013, as a response to my University brief. The end result is a body of B&W photographs and statements from individuals giving their own view over African hair. This body of work was finally compiled into a book. The input from different generations give us an understanding of how the concept of beauty an acceptance change over the years. I also interview individuals who make their living with the hair business specially the ones with special interest on natural African hair. Their insight shows hair is also a philosophy, a life style. I Read More...

My piece of photographic work is talking about a new territory that I’ve recently discovered. I tried to create it from an objective point of view, however it has subjective tendencies. Using this territory I investigated the condition of the human being and the conflicts of space that succeeds to gather people from different environments. Subway means of transportation, urban, on rails, characteristic of big cities; it joins the urban center with the suburbs and lies on a site that is proper to it, generally underground, on the ground or on an elevated surface. The dictionary thusly defines it. I Read More...

Throughout Buenos Aires’ month-long carnival I spent the hot summer evenings with two local dance troupes as they rehearsed, dressed up and toured across the city, bringing neighbourhood streets to life with the pounding rhythms of murga. Murga is a form of street dance that was banned during the country’s last dictatorship. It has been growing in popularity since it emerged back onto the streets in the 1990s, adopted by largely working class communities as a way to create happiness and leave their everyday cares behind. I wanted to explore how the Murga troupes transform everyday spaces – turning the Read More...

My practice revolves around three central themes, space, movement and change and a key question within my work is the connection between these elements and the photographic image. My interest in the position I hold in the world around me has always driven me to photograph my surroundings. I use photography, drawing and text as tools to further examine and understand the places I encounter. One of my current photographic projects N1C follows the landscape of King’s Cross during its regeneration. The works capture views of the shifting landscape within and around the site that exist for short moments before Read More...

Memory and photography are inextricably linked-sometimes indistinguishable from one another. We use photographs to prompt memories and sometimes cannot tell if we were at an event or think we were because of the photos we have seen of it. My interest is in the way that memory is inexact and how it changes over time, often without us realising it. Increasingly we understand that a memory is affected by experience, mood, environment and time. It can even be altered the more often it is re-visited as this layers additional influences on top. Photographically this constant re-interpretation is both exciting and Read More...

So the studio is like an oven – it’s absolutely baking in there and I have to teach some City & Guilds students some special effect lighting. So I thought to myself there must be a way whereby they can learn and I can cool down – and there is. How to photograph splashes using myself as the subject. Now the important thing to remember is that it is the flash that freezes the water, and not the shutter speed (which is pretty much irrelevant). We blacked out the studio, eliminating all ambient light, positioned some poly-boards and one flash Read More...

Last Saturday I ran this year’s first Location Lighting Workshop and the sun came out, which was an unexpected surprise.

These photographs form part of a personal project which originated from a decision to make photography a more significant part of my everyday life. My work demands had increased and I began to reassess the importance of photography in my life as a creative outlet. In April 2012, I joined an online photo journal website, posting a single image a day. My aim was to do this for a year. Since much of my time is spent at work, it was inevitable that some images would reflect features of my working day. I am a teacher, so recording aspects of Read More...

South London Landscapes What might seem like a predominantly urban landscape of busy roads, shops and houses all gradually and inevitably leading to the central London metropolis is, when seen from above, a sea of trees and open spaces. From the great green estate of Brockwell Park to the grand gardens of Crystal Palace and the hills and woods of Dulwich that so dramatically overlook the distant city skyline, south London is full of beautifully preserved miniature landscapes, where ancient trees, elegant architecture and pockets of wilderness separate the still recognisable towns that have over the years become our districts Read More...

Paul Tecklenberg is a graduate of the Slade School of Fine Art and has exhibited in a number of critically acclaimed shows. In 2008 he was elected to be a life member of the London Group. As part of his residency at Swedenborg House, Paul made and set up the specifically adapted pinhole cameras around the building, to capture light and movement, from dawn to dusk. In many photos, the image remains in negative, so that dark objects appear light and light objects appear dark. This is a direct reference to Swedenborg’s complex conceptions of light in Heaven and Hell: Read More...

Gary O’Dwyer works as artist and curator As an artist/photographer I work in series. The aim has been to collect/photograph man made artefacts and representations restricted to a theme and thus are able to reflect on human creativity, and consider its function, forms and content. Briefly the images included here are from one of my growing archives of anthropological photographic series, ‘Graffitidick’. I am interested in the creative production of ‘non creatives’ and creativity, expression in areas not regarded as high art. I base/justify my aesthetic along scientific and anthropological lines and themes; of working in the field, collecting on Read More...

I am originally from Norway but currently basted in the UK. Photography allows me to investigate and explore personal feelings and ideas through carefully staged images where I control all elements within the frame. Besides being a photographer I am a Social Anthropologist and my interest in the interaction between people and their environment underpins all my work. The featured work is from my two most recent projects: 1) The World is a Detour We play out different roles in different situations in life. Society wants to pin us down to certain types. We all contain elements of everything, and Read More...

In this ongoing series a fictional mapmaker goes out into the landscape to take ‘readings’ from which to create his maps and charts.

This week we see the work of photographer Liz Orton, from her project ‘Deltiologies’.
This work both celebrates and challenges the tradition of landscape photography. It takes as its starting point the idea that landscape is a representation, rather than a natural scene ‘out there’ in the world. Landscape is informed by histories of looking, and by cultural and visual narratives of nature. Read More...

Maybe it’s the damp darkness hanging over London, or the record youth unemployment statistics dominating some newspapers as quarterly job and unemployment stats get scrutinized by press and MPs, but depression is a word I’ve heard too many times already today.

Working directly with some of South London’s NEETs (young people aged 16 – 25 who are Not in Education with Employment or Training) I feel like I’m pretty close to the action, and I see and hear first hand, what the ‘lost generation’ looks and sounds like. And they look a lot more confident, charismatic and driven that you’d expect.

All that is solid melts into air Karl Marx Ships are the workhorses of globalisation, slowly but surely transporting materials, influence and power across the globe. Built to last and to survive the rigors of a life at sea, they require huge amounts of energy and force to be dismantled at the end of their working lives. Their structures contain vast quantities of hazardous materials that during the ship’s working life are safely contained within its walls and are there to propel the ship and to protect its inhabitants. At the end of the ship’s life, these materials become reanimated, Read More...
