Disparity Collective's Positions of Power examines both traditional and unconventional power, with photographers Keeley Bentley, Drew Forsyth, Claire Griffiths, Mark Hobbs, Jamal Jameel, Abbie Jennings and Conrad Ohnuki questioning and interpreting what 'power' means in 2018.


The exhibition has been created as the culmination of Redeye's Lightbox project, an intensive year-long course which seeks to launch the careers of professional photographers through workshops, networking sessions and support from experts in the photography industry.

Mentored by Manchester Art Gallery curator Kate Jesson, the seven photographers have worked through a programme designed to challenge assumptions, encourage reflection and nurture artistic potential. Positions of Power is the outcome of this year’s work by the collective.

'Positions of Power goes straight to the heart of contemporary concerns to ask who holds the power in Britain today. With work by some of the most exciting young photographers based in the north of England, it questions our perceptions of control, representation, and responsibility.

In a time of political and environmental unrest, this work shows us what it means to live in a world where power is more attainable than ever but remains just out of reach for so many'.
