I’ve teamed up again with 5 other photographers who graduated through the OCA photography degree system; Tanya Ahmed, Dewald Botha, Keith Greenough, Nigel Haworth and Pete Mansell. Rather than just exhibit an existing body of work, Tanya came up with the idea of meeting unto shoot a common theme in our own individual ways, then winging our way over to the Oxford Riverside Gallery in Nova Scotia to exhibit what we’d done. A huge challenge!
That’s not just a challenge because the pressure is on to produce something, but also because of the costs involved. We’re all to photograph Oxford (UK), none of us live there although we all have some form of link to the city. Then Tanya and I will be heading over to Canada... We’re covering those travel costs ourselves, but we’re seeking some help through crowdfunding to cover some of those other costs involved: shooting weekend costs, exhibiting costs - printing, frames, promo costs, catalogue, preview night, etc. None of us have ever tried to fund a project this way before, so it’s a challenge... yes, most definitely.
