Stop Motion Parts I and II

16 August to 11 September 2010

The exhibition is in two halves. The first half, between Monday 16 August and 28 August will show the work of 11 photographers from the group and the second half between 31 August and 11 September, will show the work of a further twelve.
The exhibition consists of around 160 images between 23 photographers, using a wide range of media. The members were challenged to realize the theme ‘Stop Motion’, which has been interpreted in many ways. As well as incisive street photography there are more delicate realisations involving poetic sequences, illustrated by movement in the act of artistic creation.   Curated by Quentin Ball RPS

Nicky Young has spent the best part of her life growing up in a field in Wiltshire, before uprooting and embarking on a long journey north to Manchester where she has resided since 2001. In 2008 she completed a photography degree at Manchester Metropolitan University. Nicky takes her inspiration from anything and everything between the green fields of the country to the bright lights of the city. She focuses mainly on the abstract and is particularly interested in the themes of colour, texture and light.
Focusing on scrutinising the dirty pots and pans we see everyday but take for granted, I hope to transport the viewer into another world. ‘My aim is to challenge how we perceive the mundane and banal objects that surround us by recycling them, through photography, into aesthetic images. I ultimately want to show that what we see is up to how we look at things, and just by changing that act of looking we can create something awe inspiring from something redundant and ineffectual.’  Nicky Young
