Only the Sunny Hours

Jointly with Jennifer Partridge, I am involved with a project curated by Cally Trench called ‘Only the Sunny Hours: Contemporary Photography with a Brownie 127’.
Cally has created a website of work from the artists involved.
An exhibition of the project was held from 20th – 24th June at OHOS, The Keep, 571 Oxford Road, Reading RG30 1HL.
There was an Open Day on Saturday 23rd June 12 noon – 6pm which included events, readings and a banquet.

SP reading by Vanja Karas

‘Homunculus’ is a group exhibition curated by Rekha Sameer, ‘in response to the  humanitarian crisis caused by mass migration.’ The exhibition included work by many talented artists and the venue is of great interest in its own right.
