Handsworth SP @brian.homer, @bishton and John Reardon set up the Handsworth Self Portrait Project in 1979 in response to the way photographers and journalists tended to visit briefly and portray the area as only having problems. They wanted to show the people themselves in a more positive light without the distractions of the environment so used a plain backdrop. The shots were taken over five Saturdays in Autumn 1979 on the street outside their office in Grove Lane, Handsworth, Birmingham. . . . . . #5decadesofselfportrait #groupexhibition #BlastPhotoFest2019 #davidattie #johnreardon #derekbishton #brianhomer #thepublic #jubileearts #handsworthselfportrait #curator #archivecurator #Multistory #Sandwell #AmbitionforExcellence #ACE #ACEmidlands #ACEsupported #CultureMatters #SandwellCouncil #MultistoryArtists #Community #Photography #Portraits #artsfestival #photographyfestival #contemporaryphotography #ambitionforexcellence

“Another Place Like Home” is a work which examines the metaphysical concept of belonging. Exploring the ways in which our ‘mental spaces’ are shaped by, and entwined with, the physical spaces around us in often surreal and unfathomable ways. “Another Place Like Home” is a collaborative work presented on-line which solicits and encourages active participation with digital audiences. Andrew Jackson (@andrewjacksonphotos) is a contemporary British artist who engages with the challenges of representation and narration through the medium of photography. He is an award-winning recipient of the Autograph ABP / Light Work International Photography Residency in Syracuse, New York. His interventions focus on notions of selfhood, revised histories, memory, family, storytelling and urbanism. A graduate of the MA Documentary Programme at Newport in Wales, Jackson has since undertaken both self-initiated and commissioned works in the UK and abroad. In 2018, he was shortlisted for the Elliott Erwitt Fellowship. He currently lectures at Coventry University. . . . . . . . #andrewjackson #andrewjacksonphotos #FORGEartist #blastphotofest2019 #MultistoryArtist #multistory #sandwell #sandwellcouncil #ambitionforexcellence #photography #followfriday #followfriday #photographyfestival
