Talk: Catharsis with Dulcie Wagstaff and Martin Seeds, 14th August

This month Miniclick explores catharsis with Dulcie Wagstaff and Martin Seeds. Artistic practice is within itself a process of working through emotions. Photography not only allows the photographer to go through this process but often records others going through this process. Both of our speakers this week explore different sides of this and the emotional relationship between photographer, subject, and the act of photographing.


Monday 14th August 2017. Doors at 6pm, kicks off at 7pm.  The Old Market, Brighton. 

Free Entry.


Dulcie Wagstaff

Dulcie Wagstaff is a Brighton based photographer, who graduated in 2016.
Her practice is an exploration of lived experiences and a need to find answers and meaning in the most commonplace of themes. Her work flits between the reality of the external, visible world, and her internal thoughts and experiences

“Within the visible world around me, I am sometimes struck by something that frustrates or intrigues me – something I want to learn to understand – this is almost always my starting point, and photography is my tool for exploration.”

Her most important project to date, Familiar Gardens (2016) grew out of two things: a love of gardening, and a diagnosis of depression. Within this project, and throughout her practice, photography becomes a way to make sense of things, to find meaning, connection, and self-expression.



Martin Seeds

Martin Seeds completed his MA Photography at the University of Brighton in 2016. His practice is centred around his relationship with his Northern Irish homeland which he left in 1986. Through his practice, he engages with the conflicting experiences of Northern Irish identity, politics, culture and nationality.
