Celebrate the opening of two new exhibitions at Autograph's gallery in Hackney: Armet Francis' photographs chronicling the lives of people of the African diaspora for more than 40 years, and Hélène Amouzou's powerful work contemplating the complex emotions of displacement and exile.
Armet Francis' images are life-affirming moments that celebrate the resilience and survival of African diasporic cultures. Curated by Mark Sealy.
Amouzou's hand printed photographs are a crucial document of a migrant who has grappled with notions of freedom, exclusion, and bureaucracy – and a refusal of erasure. Curated by Bindi Vora.
Please note that photography and/or filming will take place at this event. Images from this event may be used by Autograph and external press for marketing and promotional use, including: printed and online publicity, social media, press releases, or other use.
Autograph is a place to see things differently. Since 1988, we have championed photography that explores issues of race, identity, representation, human rights and social justice, sharing how photographs reflect lived experiences and shape our understanding of ourselves and others.Donate Join our mailing list
