Cork Photo at Brighton Photo Fringe 2016
Cork Photo in partnership with Brighton Photo Fringe present the winners of the 2016 Panel Choice Award.
Date: 1st – 31st October
Venue: King’s House: Collectives and Festivals Hub
Derek Foott – Melba & The Natives
This multidisciplinary exhibition emerged from a rediscovered family archive. In 1958, Foott’s grandmother Melba and her partner George set sail from Cork, Ireland to Cape Town, South Africa. For four years they travelled throughout the country painting and documenting their experience.
Inspired by this unique archive of photographs, insightful interviews, lost conversations and songs long forgotten; Foott presents a reimagined life, time and place through fragments of a captured past.
Tina Horgan – Little Altars Everywhere
An experiment in object association; Horgan’s miniatures pay homage to those close to her. The pictures hint towards a fascination or obsession with collecting and present us with fictitious narratives that spark childhood memories.
Brighton Photo Fringe runs a year round programme supporting early career photographers and produces a fringe festival every two years in October.
