Save Event: other places

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


​​“other places” is a group exhibition by three analogue photographers: Satomi Sugiyama, Corrado Costetti and Toralf Sümmchen.


None of the artists live in their home towns and two of them have moved continents: Corrado moved from his home in Jesi, Marche in central Italy to Naples in Campania; Satomi moved from Osaka to Los Angeles and Toralf, who comes from Sonneberg in Germany, lives in New York.

The exhibition presents photographs taken through the eyes of outsiders – either in their new towns or upon revisiting home.

How does the physical distance and years spent away from home, or a newcomer’s perspective affect how we look at and photograph these places? And how long do we remain outsiders to or residents of a given place?

“other places” is the sixth in a series of 9 exhibitions organised in 76m2 by the*kickplate*project, with the support from the Arts Council of Wales, Torfaen Council’s Arts Development and Pontypool Community Council.

You can follow exhibition updates on our facebook page, blog, twitter and website.
