THROUGH THE LENS | Anti Slavery Day – Photography Exhibition
Join us as we mark Anti Slavery Day 2021 on Monday 18th October with a special Photography Exhibition in The Merchant Hotel exploring and highlighting the perspectives and lives of individuals affected by modern slavery as we go ‘through the lens’.
Throughout the summer of 2021, Flourish held a 10 week Photography Course so that survivors could capture photos they felt represented themselves and their lives now in Northern Ireland.
Taught by Clara Scullion and kindly funded by Belfast City Council, the course incorporated both dslr and disposable cameras to explore technical aspects such as aperture, as well as the visual elements of lighting, composition and colour.
From composing and capturing to editing and printing, the participants have developed their own photographic practice in order to share with you their final collection now displayed at this exhibition.
On Anti Slavery Day the exhibition will be open for viewing across 30 minute viewing slots to give you space to view and reflect on the work of participants. To book your slot please click on the register button and select a viewing time , this allows us to manage capacity of the space in line with government guidelines.
