As part of Autograph’s 35th Anniversary celebrations we invited the public to respond to the theme of ‘Becoming Visible’. This call for photographs took inspiration from Autograph’s long-standing history of supporting artists who use photography to explore issues of identity and representation, considering questions such as: who gets visibility in the public realm, what gets forgotten or rendered (in)visible, how can photographs refuse erasure and act as documents which anchor a subject in a time and place?
We received over 1,000 brilliant images and we're delighted to share a selection in a new online gallery.
We're now taking eight of the photographs submitted to Old Street, a few minutes walk from Autograph's gallery. They will be broadcast six metres high on the Old Street Digital Canvas, located at one of London's busiest roundabouts.
