PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION DATES
10 DECEMBER 2015 – 29 JANUARY 2016
Photofusion SALON is a gallery highlight in Photofusion’s calendar, showcasing an impressive range and quality of work produced by Members throughout the year. Exhibited salon-style, the photographic and video work of 100 artists will be installed in the gallery from floor to ceiling.
Photofusion’s Membership Scheme was established when the organisation moved to the vibrant heart of Brixton in 1991. Each year, since 2010, submissions have been invited from Members to showcase the breadth and talent of the practicing photographic artists that come through our doors. There are no specified categories or themes; the aim of Photofusion SALON is simply to exhibit individual images that are powerful enough to stand alone in representation of a captivating story or concept.
This year, submissions have included a broad range of genres and techniques from digital, analogue and experimental practices. Of particular note were a large number of entries addressing highly topical issues: from photo reportage on the local regeneration of Brixton, to wider environmental issues and the current refugee crisis. Photofusion SALON/15 highlights how important and impactful photography and visual lens media can be within society and culture.
Four photographers from the SALON/15 exhibition will be selected for mentoring to develop their work for next year’s SELECT/16. Four mentors from Photofusion’s Board of Directors will each select a photographer. They include Brandei Estes, Sotheby’s Photography Specialist and Deputy Director Europe; Christiane Monarchi, Photomonitor Founder and Editor in Chief; Julie Gavin, Grimaldi Gavin Gallery Partner; and Tristan Lund, Founder of Tristan Lund Ltd and Curator of The Incite Project.
We are also pleased to confirm our continued collaboration with Hotshoe magazine for the Hotshoe Photofusion Award 2015. The winner, selected by Miranda Gavin, Hotshoe editor-at-large, will receive a feature on the Hotshoe Blog and a free annual subscription. Other awards include the Public’s Choice Award 2015, the Black and White Photography Award 2015 and the Alternative Processes Award 2015.
