WHAT WE DO – PEEL

PEEL_TOP.jpg


‘PEEL’ is an exploration of self identity directed by Marksteen Adamson

Social media, self-expression and self-identity present growing problems for young people. Trying to establish a true identity, whilst finding themselves within a ‘selfie’ culture of carefully curated Facebook and Instagram lives, has never been harder.

The exhibition and accompanying book are the culmination of a three-year study. Working with groups of young people, photography and poetry were used to explore their identity and uncover who they are rather than just what they look like.

A special lenticular printing technology will enable the exhibition prints to be viewed as a poem from one angle and a photographic portrait from another.

The first edition of the ‘PEEL’ book will also be launched at the private view.
