My contact Pippa Oldfield, the curator at Impressions Gallery, Bradford had notified me previously that they were holding a national touring exhibition entitled, ‘No Man’s Land: Women’s Photography and the First World War’ with the private view and launch on 6 October and the artists in conversation on 7 October. The exhibition funded by amongst others the National Lottery and Arts Council England will got later go to Bristol Cathedral April – July 2018, The Turnpike, Leigh November – January 209 and Bishop Auckland Town Hall February – April 2019. the content It has been put together by a group of local young people called, The new Focus Group.
The following images were taken at the private view:
It comprises work by Olive Edis, Mairi Chisholm and Florence Famborough together with contemporary work produced by Alison Baskerville, Dawn Cole and Chloe Dewe Mathews. It was exciting to be part of the launch and to see larger versions of 15 of Farmborough’s images although they are prints and not original copies. The exhibition as a whole is most interesting and thought provoking
