'Deeds not Words' Mark Neville at The Photographers' Gallery

01 August 2013

'Deeds not Words' is the culmination of photographer Mark Neville's 18 month project which focuses on the people and culture in the town of Corby, Northamptonshire and the environmental issues provoked by a court case known as the ‘Corby 16’. His multi-layered social documentary project is now showing at the Photographers’ Gallery, London.

The project was first printed as a book in 2011, comprising of photographs, scientific reports and testimonials. It was used as an advocacy tool and distributed non-commercially among 433 local, legal, scientific and environmental bodies, with the aim of promoting policy change concerning the handling of toxic waste and land reclamation.

The exhibition images show the Corby community as a whole, and also shows,  in context two boys George Taylor and Ben Vissian, who were both born with fingers missing, It depicts a story of industrial growth and decline, regeneration and solidarity, citing environmental pollution that led to several babies being born with serious birth defects in the town.

Mark Neville comments:"The whole character of the town of Corby and its people is still defined by the steel industry which formed it. It was important to me to produce a set of photographs which investigated that character; which did not ignore the visual nature of the town, its Scottish roots, or the history of the mills; or separate these from the court case. Social documentary photography sometimes deals passively with its subject matter. What this exhibition is ambitiously trying to achieve is to reach out to environmental and scientific bodies and bring about a change in policy. In doing so it also attempts to explore the possible functions of documentary photography, and its relationship to a wider audience."

Metro is delighted to have supported Mark in this project producing, mounting and framing all thirty-two colour  and black & white C Type prints for the exhibition.
