'Transition' - A Photographic Collaboration


Transition  passage or change from one place or state or act or set of circumstances to another; momentary modulation; change from one style to another (Oxford Dictionary) 

Transition is a photographic collaboration which aims to explore the notion of change from a broad range of perspectives – from our subject matter itself to its means of dissemination.

Our eight members’ projects range from the highly personal to the experimental and socially engaged, and Transition also includes work that questions the very nature of photographic reality. We are being guided through this process by photographer AJ Wilksinson.

Taking place during Liverpool’s Look 2011 international photography festival in May, our exhibition will take place within the public realm.

Our images will be displayed inside and outside three large shipping containers placed on a former industrial site minutes from the city centre, turning the show itself into an eye-catching installation piece.

The 20ft by 8ft steel containers that we have chosen to use themselves embody the idea of passage or change, having been transported to Liverpool for the purpose of this festival. They are also likely to have travelled great distances with their mystery cargo over the preceding years.

As our work pasted onto their exterior is left at the mercy of the elements over the course of May it too is likely to change on a daily basis, fitting perfectly with our overall theme.

Transition kicks off on May 13 and will run until May 31. Our official opening is Friday May 13, from 6pm-9pm.

Opening hours will be 12pm-6pm Monday-Friday and 11am-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

It all happens on Jordan Street, in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle. (Map http://bit.ly/gSlZdj)

I am really excited about this show! I am going to the shipping container depo on Monday to paste up my 7ft high images-so big! Then the show preview is on Friday 13th, lucky for us!

I hope people enjoy the show, lots of work has gone into the preparations and also on each individuals project. Good luck to all in my group and everyone displaying their work at Look 2011!
