Back in September Miniclick looked at the themes of resistance, protest and strikes with two socially minded photographers, Janine Wiedel and Homer Sykes. In an interview with Homer Sykes, he elaborates on his practice past and present. Some of your images from the 70’s highlight the fragility and division of the class system in Britain. Do you think this depiction is harder to recognise when taking photographs today? Yes it probably is. During the 1970s there was a very distinct […]
William Lakin came to speak for us in July for our summer hoods themed event, we interviewed him further about his project Good Times For Free… +++ Good times for free shows very honest depictions of young people ‘the night after’. What were the people in the portraits responses to you? It varied from place to place; on my second trip I visited a resort called Kavos which had been the subject of a TV documentary the year before and […]
Martin Seeds engages with the conflicting experiences of Northern Irish identity, politics, culture and nationality through his practice. We spoke to him following up Miniclick’s August talk On Catharsis… +++ After a career in IT, you focused your practice on photography. Would you say this background influenced the way in which you take pictures and enhanced your interest in technology? In my previous career, I treated technology as a tool to assist me to achieve something and that is how I […]
Dulcie Wagstaff uses photography as part of a creative process in which she explores quotidian environments and emotions. After Miniclick’s August talk On Catharsis, we interviewed her about her work… +++ Where do you find inspiration for your dreamlike but uncanny imagery? In terms of artists, I would say Francesca Woodman is my biggest inspiration, and has been since I was about 15. Her images are strange and uncanny, but somehow have a ‘realness’ and depth that can’t be faked […]

Liz Orton will be speaking at our June talk Photography & Landscape. Her work explores landscape as part of a practice that deals with notions of technology, ecologies and human activity. Leading up to the talk, we interviewed her about the work and her use of landscape… +++ Your views on landscape merge scientific approaches with questions about the photographic apparatus. How did you first become interested in geology and its forms of representation? I’ve always been fascinated by non-photographic […]
Katharine MacDaid will be speaking at our June talk Photography & Landscape. Her photographs take us to a variety of outdoors scenarios in different countries and cultures. In the run-up to the talk, we interviewed her about the work and her use of landscape… +++ Your early projects are mainly portraiture based, what made you shift your interest to landscape photography? It was not a conscious choice to shift my interest to landscape photography, I made some great portraits […]
