An exhibition with the aim in mind to open up the conversation about Urban Loneliness, exploring how individuals feel isolated in their own cities.

About

The State of Urban Loneliness is an experience that manifests itself in so many different ways, but stems from the juxtaposed feeling of being both isolated and connected. As every one of us navigates through the urban jungle of cities and towns, we are constantly finding difficulty in making connections, despite being surrounded by so many people. This feeling is magnified by our extensive use of social media, giving us the illusion of human connection.

 

The exhibition features work from both amateur and professional photographers who were selected to illustrate what it means to be lonely within an urban environment. Responding in their own individual way, each artist explored this complicated terrain, one of which we have all wandered across in some way or another.


The exhibition is showing at the Bowery Gallery, with excerpts shown in different venues across the city. See these excerpts at Hyde Park Book Club, Leeds University Union, Nation of Shopkeepers and Cross Keys Pub.
