Fotosynthesis Community Project : “Exploring Surroundings” – 25th June

We are thrilled to announce “Exploring Surroundings”, a group show by a selection of participants from the Fotosynthesis Community Project. The exhibition brings together the work of novice photographers, single mothers and young people from all over London and from different nationalities, who have engaged themselves with the photographic medium over the last months.
Exploring Surroundings tries to push the limits of photography… and showcases different mediums. Through their work, the novice photographers explore the language of photography, in studio as well as in the street, both digital and dark room, with a particular focus on alternative processes, such as camera-less cyanotype, photograms, pinhole using recycling paper. This project is the result of a close collaboration between students and professional photographers who encourage to think critically and responsibly about images and their messages.

Fotosynthesis is a project that runs photography workshops for community groups. We refurbished a darkroom and studio space at the Lilian Baylis Community Hub in Kennington, South London, where we aim at keeping traditional photography alive. Fotosynthesis believes in the social utility of art and offers a supportive and inclusive environment where participants can develop their potential, build confidence and discuss ideas in a stimulating and participatory way. It is a space where everyone is welcome to explore their creativity, engage with a variety of people and use photography to fight against stereotypes .
