Street Level Photoworks Exchange |
Chris Leslie & Arpita Shah
24th January 2019 – 2nd March 2019
This exhibition is part of an exciting exchange programme between Photofusion and Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow. The collaboration sees two artists from Glasgow exhibit in Photofusion’s space, whilst two of our London artists’ work is featured in Street Level’s Trongate space. We are excited to work together and consider the connections and parallels between our two cities.
The work of Arpita Shah and Chris Leslie will be shown in London , and the work by D.Wiafe and Mark Aitken in Glasgow.
Monday 25th February, 18:30 – 21:00
Magnum Photographer Chris Steele-Perkins will be in conversation with Laura Noble, director of L A Noble Gallery about his most recent photographic endeavor. Four years in the making New Londoners documents his project whereby he photographed and interviewed 164 families in their homes (with their myriad meanings of family) from 187 countries, that are now living in London. They will discuss his own experience as a half Burmese migrant to the UK and the extraordinary insights he gained from embarking on this epic project.
There will also be an exclusive preview and discussion about his forthcoming exhibition at Photofusion ‘In Brixton’ with works taken from 1973 -1995, taken whilst Chris lived in Brixton followed by a Q&A.

This programme of talks and seminars consider ways of approaching how we think through photographs. How visual languages/strategies inform the images that surround us in both the gallery and the commercial field.
“I loved seeing new work by photographers I hadn’t heard of and thinking about photography in a different way.”
“I feel I have expanded my horizons and I’ve been given lots of inputs to go deeper.”
“Learning so much in such a short space of time.”
“Really enjoyable. It pushed me to give space and time to the history of photography.”
“The range of topics covered allowed a broad foundation of introductions to theories and thinking about photography.”
“Everything has been explained in a very clear and detailed interesting way.”

Events Archive | Critical Contemplations: On Collaboration
In celebration of the launch of the new MA Photography and Collaboration programme at Coventry University in partnership with Photofusion, the second in the series of Critical Contemplation events, was on On Collaboration.
This event brought together a range of speakers for an evening of discussion and debate around the role of collaboration in contemporary photographic practice. It considered the spectrum of uses ‘collaboration’ can have, ranging from social practice, participatory workshops, or as a way of describing new ways of working between subject and photographer. The term is often used to reflect a current trend in creating ‘ethical’ imagery, but at what point does ‘collaboration’ become misappropriated to describe something more problematic?
Each event will be recorded and available to listen again via a series of podcasts.
