leeds: wip with megan dalton, matt snellin & nick goring 22nd sept ’21

Miniclick Leeds is back! What a strange eighteen months or so it has been, we have missed real life talks and seeing the familiar faces of our friends in the Leeds photo world. It gives us enormous pleasure to be able to bring you a talk in Leeds this month celebrating the work of three recent BA and MA graduates who have continued to make work despite the challenges posed by a global pandemic and national lockdowns.

We appreciate and understand the apprehensions of returning to indoor events, please be assured that steps will be taken to make the venue as covid secure as possible and people are free to wear masks where this feels more comfortable. We are excited to be in our new venue of Headrow House, providing us with a larger space to spread out amongst, and as always we run in collaboration with Village Books.

We look forward to seeing old and new faces alike at the talk next week!

Megan Dalton

Currently based in Leeds, photographer Megan Dalton graduated from Leeds Arts University in 2020 with first class honours in Fashion Photography. Megan has developed a timeless and considered photographic language on both digital and analogue mediums by using a distinct, rich colour palette and minimal aesthetic with graphic sensibilities.

Megan has recently launched her project for England’s New Lenses, funded by English Heritage and Photoworks through support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Megan has also applied her photographic approach to editorial features for publications including the Financial Times, M Le Magazine Du Monde, SICKY Magazine, and listed as a ‘One to Watch’ in the AND Then There Was Us 2019 Annual and It’s Nice That graduates. Her thoughtful approach has extended into a self-publishing practice, having published 4 personal projects over the last year: ‘For Me and You’ (2020), In Absence (2020), For the Love of The Game (2019), Looking North (2019).

Matt Snellin

Born in 1994, Matt Snellin grew up in Leeds, West Yorkshire. In 2016, Matt enrolled at the University of Lincoln where he studied BA Hons Photography. In 2019, he attended the University of Arts London (LCC) where he obtained his Master’s degree in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography. Matt is the editor for Print Magazine, which he founded in 2019 with funding from Frequency Festival. It aims to highlight and promote up and coming photographers. 

Matt Snellin is a visual based storyteller, utilising photographic images and moving image. He has worked with the NHS focusing on district nurses, highlighting their vital work for the UK Health Care system. He has recently turned his attention to the environment and is looking at the connection between human and nature and how these two elements intertwine. Matt has produced projects on organic farming, allotments and the benefit to mental health and is now exploring agricultural landscapes, looking at how humans collaborate with nature in a specific environment.

Nick Goring

Nick is a documentary photographer who lives in his native Yorkshire.

His core practice is focused on exploring our relationship with the past, both collectively and individually, and its impact on our identities. His photography is based on personal stories and shares much with the poetic tradition. Universally accessible themes of place and time are quietly referenced in his work, which asks us to empathise with forgotten narratives.

In 2020 he graduated from London College of Communication with an MA in photojournalism and documentary photography with a body of work that won the 2020 Genesis Imaging Postgraduate Award.

His current project, A Castle By The Sea, is a retelling of a lost story from the 1920’s set in the heart of the East Anglian fenlands.
