Here Now - New Documentary Photography


  • Great Northern Warehouse 235 Deansgate Manchester, M3 4EN United Kingdom

Here Now is an exhibition curated by Martene Rourke and funded by Arts Council England showcasing four documentary photography projects which deal with various social and cultural conditions within the urban built environment.

Sarah Faraday’s ‘Every Little Hurts’ explores the impact a huge Tesco development has had on her home town of Walkden in Salford. The images are a critique on the lack of diversity and character caused by the homogenisation of the British urban landscape.

Pablo Allison’s ‘Demarcations’ uses walls and fences as visual subject matter in order to question the boundaries and divisions which they instil within society and how these divisions can carry multiple interpretations.

Matt Barnes work ‘Fence’ looks closely at the physical and aesthetic qualities of divisions in the built environment and how their relationship can generate an atmosphere. The presentation of the images on to built structures allows a dialogue to open between the viewer, the image and the built environment both immediately and within the image itself.

Adam Heiss and Martene Rourke’s collaboration ‘Time Called’ portrays abandoned pubs in the Greater Manchester area with the intention of documenting these often impressive architectural examples before they disappear from the British landscape.
