Photography trip to the London Art Fair

Lancing’s Lower Sixth Form Photography pupils had a busy day at the annual London Art Fair in January. They had the opportunity to experience a wide range of contemporary artistic and photographic practices at a show with approximately 100 stands where private galleries displayed the work of their clientele.

There was also a specialist photographic exhibition entitled ‘Who’s looking at the family, now?’, curated by Tim Clark. This particular exhibition posed some fundamental questions about family life, its dynamics and complexities, as represented by a group of contemporary photographers and artists working in the UK and internationally.

The pupils attended two discussion-based lectures. The first ‘Destroyed Architecture in Photography’ and the second ‘Family Photography Now and Then’. The pupils had a great day and learnt a great deal about contemporary practice which is currently influencing their own work.
