artefact: Metro Imaging Group Show at BPF18
As main partners and official print sponsors of Brighton Photo Fringe 2018, Metro Imaging were delighted to be invited to present a show as part of the festival, showcasing a mix of artwork from our talented members of staff, as well as a selection our Metro Imaging Mentorship winners.
In 2005 Metro Imaging established a Mentorship platform to support photographers and graduates making the transition out of education or a self-taught background. The programme has gone on to be highly regarded in the industry as a vital stepping-stone into the creative industries, with notable mentees such as Felicity Hammond, Carl Bigmore, and Alexander Mourant.
This year, Metro invited LCC graduates Sophie Hambling & Shahram Saadat to curate the exhibition of Mentors & Mentees. Artefact is a mixed collection of work by current Mentorship Winners: Polly Evans, Emily Marshall, Cole Quirke, Scarlett Platel, Zoë Sim, and Nathaniel White, along with pieces by Metro’s own team: David Brazier, Nick Holyman, Patrick Kelly, Vanessa Short and Ciarán Woolcombe, all of which will be on show throughout the festival at Phoenix Brighton.
The varied group exhibition includes a mix of media, such as Black & White Hand Prints, Digital C-type printing on a range of papers, moving image, collage, Photogravures, and Bespoke Mounting & Framing.
