A coming together of work that covers a broad range of documentary photography practice. In the form of an exhibition and publication.
We need your help! Help a group of young photographers make their publication and exhibition a reality!
During our three year at the University of Wales, Newport, we've learned that documentary photography is often more than you might think it is. Whilst some of us have remained within the traditional realms of the genre, others have ventured out into the unknown an attempt to find the boundaries, if in fact there are any. This project is more than an exhibition or publication. It is an attempt to bring together work that, outside of the educational environment, would most likely not be shown at the same event.
We decided to pay homage to the home of our course in Newport, Wales by giving our exhibition a Welsh name. Grŵp literally means 'group' and is pronounced in the same way (apart from the rolling 'r'). We feel this name fits perfectly to what we're trying to achieve. To us, it means a coming together of work that covers a broad range of documentary practice.
The aim for this project is to create our graduate exhibition in London this summer and a publication of our work. We will also invite photographers
to talk and celebrate the diversity and potential in emerging graduates. All the money we're raising will go towards creating a publication
which we are designing and producing ourselves, as well as aiding the
rent of an exhibition space for a full week.
With Kickstarter and other forms of local fundraising in Cardiff and Newport, we aim to raise a total of 2500 dollars. However, the more we are able to raise, the more copies of our publication we can get printed and the larger our audience will be. Since we have no support from our university for this project, we are relying fully on the generosity of our friends, families and strangers.
