This is Not a Moment by Khali Ackford

Event info

The Royal Photographic Society and Martin Parr Foundation present a brand-new open-air exhibition space located in Paintworks, Bristol. The exhibition space launches with This is Not a Moment, a display of new work by Bristol-based photographer, Khali Ackford.

This is Not a Moment captures the journey of the Black Lives Matter Movement, focusing on the events that took place in Bristol, following the murder of George Floyd in 2020.

Khali Ackford’s photography revolves around his heritage, identity, and community. Celebrating his Jamaican roots is of paramount importance in his work, as well as giving people of colour a positive reflection of themselves, captured from his perspective. His documentary work is an extension of this, capturing what is important to him and the wider Bristol community.

This is Not a Moment is a joint exhibition between the RPS and MPF and is located between the Royal Photographic Society and Martin Parr Foundation buildings at the Photohub in Paintworks creative quarter, Bristol. 

The Photohub is a space for those passionate about photography to experience a regular programme of creative and inspiring exhibitions, events, workshops, and opportunities. 

The exhibition space has been developed with support from West of England Combined Authority. 

Join us for the Photohub Summer Exhibition Launch on 30 June 2022, 6pm – 8pm. Sponsored by Lost and Grounded. This is a free event. 


No booking is necessary.
