The Human Document
The Photography of Persuasion from 1930s America to Present Day
Fri 7 Oct – Sat 10 Dec 2016 / Open Mon – Sat 12pm – 9pm
Venue: Mead Gallery
Tickets: FREE

The Human Document explores artists’ enduring fascination with the work of a group of photographers commissioned by the Farm Security Administration Programme (FSA) in Depression era-America to document the plight of rural workers and to introduce ‘America to Americans’.

The exhibition includes images produced during the years 1935-1944 by photographers including Dorothea Lange and Walker Evans. It also includes photographic work produced from the 1970s onwards following a revival of interest in the FSA photography programme. This includes the work of Chris Killip and Paul Graham, made during the British recession of the 1970s and ‘80s and Richard Billingham’s famously shocking photographs of his own family in the mid-1990s series, Ray’s a Laugh.

In Grapevine (1988-1992), the American photographer Susan Lipper presents an intimate series of images made in a small West Virginian town of the same name. Eileen Perrier’s Mobile Portraits – produced using an iPhone – demonstrates the extent to which both the nature of photography and the relationship between photographer and subject has changed since the 1930s with the advent of digital technologies and the democratising effects of social media.

Portrait Features

"Portraits of a Global Law School" was launched in the summer of 2015. The project involved interviewing over 50 students, staff and alumni, presenting their portraits alongside short features describing each person’s life, work and connection to The Dickson Poon School of Law. The project will return for another round of photo shoots, but until then we will be presenting a series of articles and photographs focusing on visiting alumni and the School in more depth.
