Real Photography Company – Black History Month 2020

October until December

The Pioneers

Photography Exhibition by Garfield McKenzie  www.geephotography.co.uk

At St Pauls Learning Centre – Glen’s Café https://www.stpaulslc.co.uk/

All through October until December 2020

The set of portraits in this exhibition make visible a generation of intrepid individuals, who left their homeland to make the journey to a new life. These elders paved the way for the generations of black British communities living in the UK today. Bristol-based artist and photographer Garfield McKenzie has documented these pioneers as a way to pay respect and show admiration.

Instagram Take Overs

Each weekend in October the Real Photography Company has invited a Black artist / photographer to take over our Instagram feed, to showcase their work and talk about their practice.  Follow us on www.instagram.com/realphotographycompany
