People who have saved this event:


Outline is a photographic exhibition featuring work which responds to the notion of everyday boundaries.


 Four emerging London-based photographers present images which grapple with ideas of control, confines of both an internal and physical nature, and the space between image-maker and viewer. How are our daily actions trivially controlled and how can we use the camera to come to terms with this? How do we internalise rules and how do they affect our photographic practice? The exhibition explores how an awareness of such limitations can lead to liberation from them.

The work will show in the downstairs gallery space at Out of the Brew Arts Cafe in New Cross. The exhibition will open with a private view on Friday 6 July from 18.00-22.00 (all welcome) and is open all day on Saturday 7th between 10.30-17.30.

About the artists

Rachel E Joy Stanley is a fine-art photographer based in London and the curator of Outline. Her work focuses on spaces and how we construct, occupy and engage with them. Largely observational, subtly critical and inherently concerned with form and function, Rachel's photographs attempt to organise and make sense of contemporary life, asking questions about power, ownership and the balance between natural and human worlds. rachelstanley.co.uk | @r.ejs 

Jeremy Stokes is a photographer who uses the medium of the camera to reflect and capture a visual poetic tapestry. A tapestry of flux, of the light and the dark, of the beauty, and the truth of being. A spiritual pilgrimage of one’s own self, for the souls enrichment towards the light and divine. Photography: meaning from Ancient Greek - The study of light. Let there be light. jeremyjstokes.wordpress.com | @jeremy_john_stokes 

Edward Green’s socially conscious work, which celebrates banal, beautiful and surreal aspects of public life, has been exhibited in galleries across the capital. In September 2017, he released his debut photo book Never Mind. The book captures the prevailing (un)social behaviour of the city and the weakening affect it can have on the individuals who inhabit it. More recently, Edward’s work has been concerned with understanding identity politics, and a young generation besotted with nostalgia and myth. edwardjuliangreen.tumblr.com | @nedgreen

Louise Astbury is a writer, photographer and film-maker who is interested in the camera’s ability to navigate the elusive terrain between one’s internal spaces and one’s surroundings. She likens the act of taking a photograph to diving underwater: ‘normal rules no longer apply as you don’t need to breathe because nothing except the immediate image exists’. Her images capture moments of reverie, stillness and reveal the transformative effect light has on everyday scenes. She focuses on these pauses between points of action in her writing and her visual work. flickr.com/photos/128448543@N08 | @lou_moon
