A one-day course for 8 – 18 year olds. To the uninitiated, zines aren’t quite magazines but they are much more than a leaflet.

Making a zine is a totally personal experience, you can pick your theme and decide your own style; children and young people love it. Read More...

It’s nearly that time of year again when we celebrate the diverse talent of our photographic community with Photofusion’s annual members’ show, SALON/16!

However, the use of the Read More...

For my third Photofusion Members’ Project Review Katerina Kalogeraki sent selection of 10 photographs from her personal project, Family Portraits: Four Generations, focusing on families from countries “around Europe and one family from Singapore”. The work aims to look at family structures, cultural similarities and differences, and cross-cultural mixing over generations. The colour photographs are all environmental portraits taken in each of the family’s homes, indoors and outdoors. There is no easily discernible reason as to why two photographs have been shot outside the home and I wondered why. In looking at the images these two feel inconsistent with the Read More...
