NCP and NEPN Connect Series: Julian Germain


Please join us for a talk by Julian Germain via Zoom on Thursday 4 June at 2.30pm.

To attend please email: amanda.ritson@sunderland.ac.uk and joining instructions will be emailed shortly before the event.  

This event will have BSL interpretation.

It could be argued that all of Julian Germain’s work is ‘social’, founded on relationships and collaborations as well as on engagement through photography, exploring themes that affect people’s lives. He often utilises archival, found and domestic images alongside his own, reflecting on photography’s place in society as well as exploring its deep connections with time and memory. He will discuss the evolution of a range of projects that explore ideas of shared creativity, of looking to the future as well as the past, of being socially, politically and artistically relevant and of the importance of connecting with people.

Collaborative projects include No Olho da Rua (with Patricia Azevedo, Murilo Godoy and street dwellers from Belo Horizonte, Brazil) – a series of ‘zines featuring selected themes from the No Olho da Rua Archive (as well as edits by guest curators) are currently being published by Mörel; The Ashington District Starnewspaper (with people who live, work, study or are from the ex-mining town of Ashington, Northumberland). Other work includes For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness, published by MACK, exhibited at Baltic, Gateshead; Classroom Portraits, published by Prestel, exhibited at theNederlands Fotomuseum.
