Photofusion presents Ten Seconds, a solo exhibition by British photographer Sian Bonnell. Much of the work was created during a short residency at Photofusion Gallery in early 2022. This exhibition will invite you into the unique process of Bonnell’s photographic practice and will also include an earlier series, made at the British School in Rome. Bonnell works with available objects and spaces, challenging our ideas around the nature of art and its subject-matter. The show will be on public display from the; 6th of May until the 10th of June 2022.

Anti-Racism: A Statement from Photofusion
Photofusion stands against racism and supports Black Lives Matter. We continue to work as we have done, towards embodying the values of anti-racism with our work and organisation. The barbaric killing of George Floyd has had a significant and distressing impact on us all. We acknowledge the presence of systemic racism in society and further consider what we can do to counter racism whenever and wherever it occurs.
