“An immense project” Joseph Beaney
“Roba forte” Mr Occhio one man band
“This book is Damn fun” Valentina
“Che dio ce la mandi buona” Alex
A collective exhibition by emerging photographers that explores our relationship to cities. The work seeks to portray some of the various invisible correspondences that take place between people and urban environments and how we look to our cities, consciously or not, for narrative and meaning.
The exhibition will be held on Johnny Ball Lane on saturday 5 may. Most of the works will be left behind, creating an open air gallery
Violetta Jara – photo collages from Swiss
Through these photographs I wanted to show my existence, places that I’ve seen; places that creates my stories.
The person who is in these photos is a reflection of myself .
The idea of this project is to show a human being in its environment; in terms of psychology and socialogy. Titles of works speaks for themselves, interpretations belongs to the viewer.

Alfonso Chianese from Italy
Alfonso will present his work about San Donato, a small town near Milan, where old rural landscape and more recent mass development meet, creating a sharp contrast in terms of different affordances and opportunities. Two different ideas of city planning and consequent lifestyle sharing the same urban space. A story about the relationship between nature and architecture and how people live their spaces.
Alex J Rankin from Bristol
These images are concerned with overlooked or abandoned spaces. These areas can often contain hidden or unusual detail, which is not only pleasing to the eye, but can create a vivid sense of place and mood so that these spaces are no longer seemingly empty, but take on a narrative about their past and present.
Lisa Furness from Bristol
This image is part of a set called ‘after you’ve gone’. Aa meditation on the way our constructs go on existing once we’ve got distracted & walked away.
Marta Kochanek from London
Great people and portrait photographs reveal personality and character. Marta Kochanek uses environmental elements to portray life/work, emotion and experience.
Fallen empire studio from London
Fallen Empire Studio will showcase a selection of pictures taken in London at the eve of the Olympics, a stratified city hang in the balance between redevelopment and poverty, hedonism and loneliness, sweet dreams and harsh reality. And how all these opposites can coexist in the very same frame.
