August 2 - August 8
A Portrait series by Jake Davis and Chris Taylor, shot entirely on 35mm film. We set out to capture the people and streets of Stokes Croft in our photography, we wanted the grit of 35mm film and the starkness of black and white to show a kind of truth to our work, no lighting, just what we saw through our lens and what you will see on the walls. With each of our portraits there was no prearrangement, we simply stopped people on the street and asked if we could take their portrait. Our work is trying to find the art in that and we hope that it says something about the community and independent spirit of Stokes Croft.
This is each of ours first exhibition and a collaboration that we are excited for people to see. We have been working on this for the best part of a year and through these experiences, our camera’s and own bodies frozen through the long winter days, we are proud to show you the work in what we consider one of the best social hubs in Bristol.
It is free to attend and entirely self funded. We will be selling prints and zines in strictly limited quantities with part of the proceeds going to Hamilton House and Coexist and the rest to simply cover costs. Our opening night starts at 6pm on Thursday August 2nd and will run until the 8th, we hope to see you there.
