First Thursday: A meet-up for Black, Asian & other photographers of colour

Thursday 7 October 2021

ReFramed is providing a unique informal social space for photographers and visual artists. The ‘First Thursday’ meet-up is specifically for Black, Asian and other people of colour.

 

It is the only monthly social platform in the Midlands to meet, network, get support and feedback. It is free to attend, but we ask you to book a ticket in advance of the event and indicate if you intend to bring work to show.

Andrew Jackson is an artist based in the UK who uses photography to explore the challenges of selfhood, representation and narration. His works focus on transnational migration, belonging, displacement, and memory.

Jackson’s images demonstrate how photography can challenge, reshape, revise and disseminate history, as well as disrupt assumptions in discreet, intimate and personal ways. In 2018 he was shortlisted for the Elliott Erwitt Fellowship and the Magnum Foundation Social Justice fellowship.

He is an award-winning recipient of the Autograph ABP /Light Work (AIR) International Photography Residency in Syracuse, New York and a graduate of the MA Documentary photography program at Newport in Wales. His work is held in both International and Nationalsuch as the United Kingdom Government Art Collection, the Garman Ryan Collection, Light Work Collection at Syracuse University, Rugby Museum & Art Gallery and a range of private collections. He co-founded and was co-director of Some Cities CIC, a community-oriented participatory photography company in the UK, between 2013 and 2018. Selected clients include The Guardian Weekender, FT Mag, Stern magazine, The Telegraph, The Independent on Sunday, and The Independent on Saturday.
