About the Event

Read More Join us for the launch of our student showcase Common Ground - and see new work by 16 to 19 year-old London photographers responding to the shifting political and cultural climate they live in.

The artists have worked with Autograph and University of the Arts London in our Album programme. Album provides access to artists, curators, mentoring and Autograph's Archive - supporting a new generation of photographers interrogating their own stories and identities. 

The work in Common Ground demonstrates 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.

About Album

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.
