Photographs, caffeine and biscuits

February’s instalment of PushPull, the photography slideshow and social event I organise with friend and collaborator Jessa Fairbrother, was our fourth, the second to take place at S1 Artspace, and first to feature a guest presenter. Theo Simpson spoke about Lesser Known Architecture specifically and his recent activities in general, which are increasingly focused on exploring the possibilities of the photobook as an object in its own right instead of just being a ‘container of photographs’. Amazing stuff.

PushPull #5 happens on 29th March at Bank Street Arts, starting at 730pm. Andy Brown has very kindly agreed to come along to talk about his involvement in You’re Not Alone, a powerful and moving group project initiated by Cat Powell and undertaken with Richard Hanson and Shaun Bloodworth that documented life in Sheffield Children’s Hospital. Prior to this we’ll be screening a number of slideshows that have caught our eye lately, serving up tea and coffee, and trying not to hoard the biscuits we’ll be bringing along.

Slideshows we’ve screened at the last two events have worked around particular themes: in February we showed work that was focused on social media and identity, and PushPull #3 was about rural and urban lifestyles and the places where they overlap. So far we’ve screened work by quite a stylistically- not to mention geographically- diverse group of photographers: Lena Adasheva, Miriam Aziz, Ingrid Berton-Moine, Josep Echaburu, Matthew Ellis, Gary Geboy, Katie Griesar, India Hobson, Jamie House, James Luckett, Veronika Lukasova, Amanda Mason, Simone Massera, Jim Mortram, Catherine Pearson, Laura Sackett, Anastasia Taylor-Lind, and Gemma Thorpe. We’re always on the lookout for interesting work to screen, so if you’d like to submit something for consideration you can find out more about doing so here. Over the coming months we’ll be bringing more guests to speak about their work at PushPull, and are looking into staging a special summer event that will include a heady mix of photography, food, music, chat, and, fingers crossed, glorious late evening sunshine…
