University Campus Suffolk: Photography Graduate Show 2011 Review

Fabulous photography from the Allsorts crew: anarchists as traditional figures of painting by R.G. Brown, interior portaits by James Roffe and up close and personal male nudes from Thomas Ford.

From University Campus Suffolk there was an intriguing selection of experimental photography in their Allsorts exhibition at Free Range.

James Roffe‘s project looked at The Person and Their Space: building a bigger picture of his subject through the careful use of photoshop to overlay portraits on their home environment. These were surprisingly powerful and up close the large scale inkjet prints took on a luminous quality thanks to the studied texture of skin.

I was utterly captivated by R.G. Brown‘s re-imagining of famous paintings with traditional characters replaced by anarchists, cialis 40mg riot police and business men. He is clearly an artist immersed in today’s charged political environment as his documentary photographs of protest marches testify – and he has translated this interest into something really quite unique. Very powerful images.

For an-a-tom-i-cal a-nal-y-sis Thomas Ford had squelched the slabbily pink bodies of three males into mega scaled contortions, website like this as if pressed against circus mirrored glass. When I was walking around Free Range I twittered an up close snap of the most in your face pair of male genitals and got censored. Why? Why should it be deemed so disturbing to look at these most mundane of body parts? It’s hard to find a new way of looking at the nude but these images were impressive in their frank rawness.
