This weekend saw the opening of Drift exhibition, part of UrbanPhotoFest 2015
and in conjunction with Tate Britain during Photomonth East London
Curated by Kevin Fitzgerald
and Tanya Houghton
the exhibition brings together the work of eleven up and coming international photographers and features a mixture of portraiture, documentary, landscape and street photography. He exhibition is the result of a process of exploration of multiple, contemporary urban environments, bringing stories together from global cities and their edgelands.
Metro has worked with some of the young artists Kevin Fitzgerald, Carlo Navato
and Tanya Houghton producing and mounting Giclée
and C-Type prints
for the exhibition:
Houghton's 'A Migrant’s Tale' is a collection of narrative explorations of home and nostalgia, told through the language of food.
'Spaces of Otherness' produced by Navato looks at a disused World War II aerodrome examining spaces that have multiple layers of meaning and a fundamentally deeper relationship to places than might immediately meet the eye.
'Audiographies' by Fitzgerald "takes inspiration from the notion of the soundscape originally proposed by R. Murray Schafer, aural architecture, and mobility theories, the work elucidates on the interdependency of the senses."
