Joanna Vestey's 'Custodians' at the Oxford Photography Festival 2014

19 August 2014
Metro is delighted to have produced and finished eleven C-Type prints for British photographer Joanna Vestey for her collection of work entitled ‘Custodians’ which will be shown as part of the Oxford Photography Festival.

‘Custodian’ is a project photographed in Oxford as Joanna explored the extraordinary colleges and buildings of the city. One individual considered to play a pivotal role in perpetuating these world-renowned institutions was elected and photographed in situ.

Joanna explains: “I was especially interested in the ‘Custodians’ role within these institutions, seeing it as a metaphor for so many peoples lives, how we are all largely shaped and influenced by the structures around us - how defined we are by them, how much they form us and exploring the themes of transition and permanence, the sense of being alone but not alone.  Within this series I was curious whether the Custodians ‘owned’ the space or if it ‘owned’ them

Venues included range from the Ashmolean Museum to the Pawsons Cricket Pavillion and from Christ Church Cloisters to a dissecting room in The School of Anatomy.  Some locations are well known - some much less so.

2014 is Oxford Photography’s inaugural festival taking place for three weeks in September. Its founder and director is the photojournalist Robin Laurance who established Photography Oxford in Spring 2013 to deliver biennial festivals of international photography in the city.

Acclaimed and award-winning photographers will come together in free exhibitions across 'the city of dreaming spires’. Complimented by talks, panel discussions, films and workshops, it is the intention that the festival will increase the opportunity for regional audiences to engage with world class photography and that Oxford becomes the place not only to celebrate photography but also where the many issues surrounding photography at the beginning of this 21st century are discussed and debated.
