We’re delighted to announce that we have begun working with Anne McNeill, and her colleagues, at Impressions Gallery, Bradford, in producing a show of our photography entitled ‘Beyond The Border’. The show will open to the public on July 1st, and there will be an opening night soiree on July 3rd. You’re all invited!
Last week we spent a very enjoyable and quite intense couple of days in the gallery working with Anne, laying out images, listening and learning from Anne’s experience in hangings shows, starting to decide the look of the show, deciding which of the four of us gets which wall (there were no arguments!), and in general starting the ball rolling to making it all happen.
Images were laid on the floor in the gallery, in the shadow of the show which was currently up, by Paul Reas. Debate ensued over a few images, over the way some work is taking shape. Advice and amusing banter was exchanged, but all with insight and years of experience shared amongst colleagues from various gallery and editorial backgrounds. It made for fascinating exchanges, and proves you never stop learning.
The work on show by the four members of Document Scotland will all be recent contemporary work shot in Scotland and the USA.
Over the coming weeks we’ll of course share more information on the show, and we’ll blog about the process as it happens, as the show takes more and more shape. But for now, enjoy some images of the first stages of editing, and mark the dates in your diary! ‘Beyond The Border’, at Impressions Gallery, Bradford, from July 1st until late September!
Also, please follow the progress of the show on Twitter, where we’re using the hashtag #BeyondTheBorder. Please come and join the conversation.
