Affected by detention, photography exhibition at SPACE, Bristol

Affected by Detention: Photography exhibition

See It From Her+ presents:
Affected by Detention
-Photography work by 3 individuals who have all been
affected in different ways by immigration and detention.

The work will be accompanied by the words and voices of those from the project.


18th – 24th June 12pm – 5.30pm

**PREVIEW on 18th JUNE 7PM**

The UK is the only country in Europe that doesn’t have a time limit on detention.

In the UK, the Government detains approximately 30,000 people for immigration purposes per year.

In 2017, 28,244 people left detention. 44% were removed from the UK, which means that 56% of those detained were released back into the community, their detention having served no purpose.

What goes on in our immigration system and inside detention is often kept very hidden and those with experience are not always able to speak out.

Those involved all had very different approaches to the work they made and responses to their individual experience of immigration and detention. This exhibition is a chance to hear directly those who have been impacted.

Chasing the Light Photography exhibition, SPACE,, Bristol

Chasing the light: photographs from Sanday, Orkney

I’m pleased to present an exhibition of new work from the isle of Sanday, in Orkney.

Preview night: 5 June, 7-10 pm (details on separate event page).


Every summer, I chase the light.

City-jaded, I pack my tiny car to the gills, take a deep breath, and head north, on a 700-mile, three-day drive to Scotland’s far north-east corner, where land slips into sea, and the boat to Orkney awaits.

Each year I’m lured up again to these islands, by what feels like an infinity of space, by 180o-sky vistas, and an ever-changing drama of colour and light wrought by an extraordinary fusion of earth, sky and water. In some far-flung corners, a thick, deep almost-silence reigns, threaded with birdsong and sea sound.

I could become lost in such vastnesses, and I often do, but there’s also a holding, a homecoming.

In 2017, desire for solitude took me to Sanday, largest of Orkney’s Northern Isles – low, windswept, just 16 miles long and home to a thriving community of 550. It’s well named, with a coastline of long curving sandy beaches, particularly striking seen from the tiny 8-seater plane.

Walking out, I meet remnants of the past: lichened quernstones dot the landscape; a ruined croft house, built in a field, is now drowning in sand as the sea slowly eats its way inland.

Life continues: waves still pound around near-deserted Kettletoft pier, once Sanday’s main port. Close by, silhouetted against a brilliant sunset, a cat pads along its wall, indifferent.

Spotting a field full of birds, I stop the car to get the picture, but never do; instead, there’s a startling thunder of hooves, as a herd of curious cows bursts up, crowding to the fence to check me out.

Beachcombing uncovers more: glowing turquoise of a verdigris-coated spoon among the pebbles; later, twilight’s merging of sky, sea and sand into one breathtaking canvas of soft purples, lilacs, greys.

On a small island, everywhere is water. And more light than I could hope to catch.

Foto One, FdA Professional Photography Year One Exhibition, City of Bristol College

‘Foto One’ is an exhibition of work produced by first year students on the FdA Professional Photography at City of Bristol College.

Alternative Perspectives

An exhibition of A-Level Photography personal investigations.

A main theme of architectural photography of historic landmarks has been explored. This is aiming to find the beauty within the man-made historical aspects of Bristol/Bath.

The second theme revolves around urban landscapes within the backstreets of Bristol. Students have chosen to merge our projects into a single exhibition as takes a look at two sides of Bristol, and the surrounding area. With the landmarks being the commonly seen and documented side of Bristol whereas the backstreets being the hidden side.
