SIXTEEN: A major new photography exhibition conceived by Craig Easton

4 Jan 2019 12:28PM
In a major new touring exhibition leading contemporary photographers join forces to present the multimedia project Sixteen, exploring the dreams, hopes and fears of sixteen-year olds across the UK.

Photographer Craig Easton conceived this ambitious project following his engagement with sixteen-year olds at the time of the Scottish Referendum. It was the first, and as yet only, time that these young people were given the vote in the UK. Building on the success of that work he invited 16 of the UK’s foremost documentary portrait photographers to collaborate with young people across the country to make a visual vox pop on what it means to be sixteen now.

Photographers: Robert C Brady, Linda Brownlee, Lottie Davies, Craig Easton, Jillian Edelstein, Stuart Freedman, Sophie Gerrard, Kate Kirkwood, Kalpesh Lathigra, Roy Mehta, Christopher Nunn, Kate Peters, Simon Roberts, Michelle Sank, Abbie Trayler-Smith, plus the first of four specially selected students, David Copeland, MFA candidate at Ulster University.

Public Preview: Friday 15 February 2019. 4:30pm New Adelphi Exhibition Gallery & Atrium, University of Salford, and 7.30pm at HOME, Manchester

Thanks to a National Lottery grant from Arts Council England Sixteen will tour nationally, starting in February 2019 with exhibitions in North West England and in March at FORMAT19, Derby.
