Identity and Self Portraits

Venue: Brighton Photo Biennial

Date: Thursday 25th October 2018

Time: 10:00 – 16:00

Ages: 12-15

Fee: £50 (Optional additional £10 for DSLR camera hire)

Using the “New Europe” exhibitions as inspiration, your teen will learn how to take interesting photographs through using camera mechanics and composition. We’ll visit the exhibition together, looking at the images and discussing how we can translate the ideas of identity into our own work. We’ll encourage our students to think about their own identities and how to use their cameras to show them in their photographs. Our students will learn how their camera makes a photograph, through understanding aperture, shutter speed and ISO. We’ll work together on fun, inspiring activities to encourage their own photographic identities and go outdoors and photograph together on the streets of Brighton. Our students will finish the day with a great set of image.

We will meet the students at the reception area of the Grand Parade campus, Brighton university (see venue information) Please pack a lunch.

“Examining the current state of flux as the United Kingdom redefines its role in Europe, the eighth Brighton Photo Biennial draws on one of the most important geopolitical events of our time. The UK’s status within the EU may be changing, but geographically we will remain part of Europe – with a shared history and intertwined future.

Much of the photography in Brighton Photo Biennial 2018 responds to this current uncertainty. Visitors can examine Britain’s geography as an island: simultaneously divided and connected. Other shows reflect on the ongoing refugee crisis and photography’s role in the construction of national identity. Photoworks’ own beginnings are revisited with the Cross Channel Photographic Mission, created to mark The Channel Tunnel physically linking Britain to the continent for the first time in 12,000 years.”
