Cohere
Inspired by the poetry of Zaffar Kunial, Cohere is an immersive installation combining multiple projection, sound and live performance. Initiated with a workshop with Zaffar Kunial, refugee writers have created new content to perform. Responding to this, four visual artists, Geoff Brokate, Martha Jurksaitis, James Bellorini, and Kani Kamil, all from mixed cross-cultural backgrounds have created film, sound and visuals.

The resulting performative installation will bring together a variety of stories and experiences; creating a coming together of difference. Cohere, means to create a unified whole, to bring together, and you are welcome to be a part of this. To experience this collaborative and collective visual and poetic response to the meaning of place, and how our homeland and its culture entwine around our being to impact our sense of self.

Claire Armitage

I am a fine art and documentary photographer based in Manchester.

My passion in photography is biased towards people and their stories – whether that be portraiture, documentary or street. My work is characterised by an honest, observational approach, sometimes delivered with humour, but always with a desire to evoke emotion. I enjoy the connections that my photography brings with people, places and history; capturing never to be repeated moments in time. Celebrating the human: the unusual and the ordinary

Initially studying English Literature at university, I have gone on to find my true creative passion in photography, whilst bringing my enthusiasm for stories and narratives with me on the journey. I have also spent some time studying psychology, which has helped fuel my fascination in people and how they think, interact, connect and navigate their way through life. My choices of subject always come from this fascination.

I am usually working on several projects at the same time, and whilst the equipment and techniques change, what always remains consistent, is the desire to create an emotive body of work.

Peter Dench

The 2018 FIFA World Cup: 32 nations; 62 football matches; millions of fans. Russia: 11 time zones across two continents; home of the Trans-Siberian Railway – 5,772 miles across seven time zones in seven days. The world’s most iconic single train journey in one of the world’s most powerful countriees. It was an opportunity for the most epic of away days, documenting the global passion for football while riding the Trans-Siberian, a lifeline that connects a nation and nationalities.

 John Bolloten

John Bolloten is a documentary photographer based in Bradford, UK.

John has published six books to date: “Bradford Street” (2014); “Belgrade” (2015); “Shabash” (2016), “Nothing To See Here” (2017), “Field of Broken Dreams” (2018) amd “Love Story” (2019).

Praise for his “Nothing To See Here” book includes “Britain photographed at it’s most brutal and bleak; it’s Bradford and uniquely Bolloten.” (Peter Dench); “Wow! Recommended.” (Boogie); “Great book. I wish you all the best and that the fucking establishment isn’t ignoring you.They try to let you starve until you give up. And when you’re dead or dying they discover you.” (Miron Zownir); “Beautiful images from the front lines. You are a brave and noble man with vision and skill. Keep up the good work.” (Scot Sothern); “It’s amazing. Certainly harrowing but a very important work. It’s stuff that needs to be seen more and more.” (Derek Ridgers); 

 

“It’s a hell of a book. Very strong, very powerful work. John’s the real deal.” (Jim Mortram); “Gnarly! Great stuff!” (Ricky Adam); “Serious Reportage” (Kaushal Parikh); “These photos will smack you in the face with reality. Brutally honest, his subjects hold nothing back for his lens. It’s an achievement how comfortable he makes them feel to give him such an honest expression. John gives us access to a grim world.” (Japan Camera Hunter).

John published his latest book “Love Story” in May 2019 on Fistful of Books.
