Photofusion are pleased to be working with ChantiMedia again for another panel discussion. This discussion will feature AJ Silistre, Lizzy Brown, Fiona Compton and Sherion Mullings will be held here at the Photofusion Photofusion Gallery.
AJ Silistrie was born in 1975, in Nancy, France. The narrative of this French-Guadeloupean visual artist, who resides and works in London, compels you to embark on an introspective journey. The talented, self-taught artist consistently presents a body of work which exudes an aura of curiosity and provocation. Her artistic endeavours developed in her teenage years, in the fields of music, writing and sculpture, before finally settling into photography less than a decade ago. AJ regularly exhibits her work in London and has sold over 100 originals in the last three years. She is currently working on ‘Indigenous’, a new series of monochrome portraits which explores the roots of negritude and self-identity. ‘Fearless’ and ‘Falling With Grace’, were selected as finalists for the May 2014 SHOOT THE FACE award and published in the SHOOT THE FRAME 2013/14 book.
Lizzy Brown was born in England. Made in Jamaica. Intrigued with the mundane aspects of domesticity and daily life. Concerned with the authenticity of memory and the creation and destruction of the remembered life as evidence of existence. Her alter ego: eye_an_i is passionate about Reggae Music and can be found in the front row of any major concert in town documenting for posterity.
Fiona Compton is a Saint Lucian born Photograher and Artist, with professional experience spanning over a decade. After graduating with her BA Photography at London College of Printing in 2005, Fiona has worked for some of the largest publishing houses in the UK, photographing heads of major banks and corporations, and Internationally recognised music artists. Whilst having lived in this brick and concrete jungle called London for over 15 years, surrounded by hundreds of languages, cultures and dialects, absorbing and observing, experiencing and feeling – Fiona has always felt and maintained a close connection to her Caribbean Heritage.
Sherion’s interest is focused mostly in documentary photography and aiming to tell a story through her work, capturing the emotion,the motion and the moment. More info: sherionmullingsphotography.co.uk/
