About the Exhibition

See new work by young London photographers, responding to the rapidly shifting political and social climate they live in.

The artists in Common Ground take an autobiographical approach in their practice, exploring issues around sexual identity, communities and race.

This is our sixth annual student showcase, featuring artists aged 16 to 19 who have worked with Autograph and UAL Insights in our Album programme.

Album provides access to professional artists, curators and mentors, as well as Autograph's archive - supporting a new generation of photographers interrogating their own stories and identities.

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, the students collaborated on assignments which introduced them to a range of photographic genres and techniques.

The 2020 Album showcase celebrates the students’ ambitious ideas as they create their own photographic narratives and find their place in contemporary practice.
