Young London Photographers: Common Ground exhibition

15 November 2018


Closes: 20th November 2018, London



Free photography exhibition at Autograph, London.


The exhibition will feature new work by 16 to 19 year-old London photographers, responding to the shifting political and cultural climate they live in.

The images in Common Ground demonstrate a deep awareness of what binds these young Londoners together. Their autobiographical approach explores issues around sexual identity, disability and homelessness - confronting notions of safe and unsafe spaces.


This is the sixth year of the Album programme - an outreach project by Autograph and University of the Arts London's Insights Programme.


Each year, Album offers young people from sixth form and further education colleges the opportunity to work with artists, photographers and curators to develop their practice and create new work. The programme is inspired by the notion of the family album, with its intimate, personal and revealing visual records


Based at London College of Communication and Central Saint Martins, the students collaborated on assignments which introduced them to a range of photographic genres and techniques.


The 2018 Album showcase celebrates the students’ ambitious ideas as they create their own photographic narratives and find their place in contemporary practice.
