This exhibition is part of a summer of collaboration between Photofusion and the Museum of London, around their current exhibition “London Nights.” Anna Sparham, Curator Photographs at the Museum of London, selected the work of seven artists, including David Axelbank, Anthony Carr, Jan Enkelmann, Cordelia Grabbe, Caroline Jane Harris, Dee Ramadan, and Alex Stone.
These artists were selected from an open call, inviting photographers who work at night, to submit images for consideration. Photofusion were open to the widest interpretation of the theme “Made In Brixton,” and the exhibition includes work that was photographed, printed and/or inspired by experiences in Brixton. The one thing all the work has in common is the backdrop of night, creating a frisson of excitement, as the darkness transforms familiar surroundings into something else.
Caroline Jane Harris is an artist whose work encompasses photography, printmaking and drawing. In this project, she explores the surfaces we look at, upon, and through: windows, blinds, curtains and shadows that thicken the veil through which we see.
