Yan Morvan : "Art for All" Exhibition Gangs

Yan Morvan : "Art for All"  Exhibition Gangs | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

As a reporter for the agency Sipa press from the 1970s to the present day, Yan Morvan photographed young people in the suburbs of Paris: rockers, rappers, punks, dealers, rioters. With Kizo, Morvan turned the photographs into the nefarious book Gangs Story, which led to a costly trial following a complaint by a nasty right-wing extremist.

Conventional Wisdom by Arthur Drooker

Conventional Wisdom by Arthur Drooker | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

So far, the wisdom I've gained from this project has shown me that regardless of what they're about, where they're held or who attends them, all conventions satisfy a basic human urge: a longing for belonging. At conventions, people who share similar interests, even obsessions, come together to bond and to be themselves. The outside world doesn't matter. In fact, for the weekend duration of most conventions, the outside world doesn't even exist. The conventioneers have each other and that's all they need. An attendee I met at the taxidermist convention put it best. "This isn't a convention," he said. "It's a family reunion."

Makoko exhibition opens a window on a Nigerian world

Makoko exhibition opens a window on a Nigerian world | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Photographers love Lagos's floating slum for its colour, canoes and poverty.

The Silent Majority project works very differently. Started in 2010 by Adolphus Opara and Olusola Otori, the project gives children the opportunity to express themselves and develop their creative skills. The pair are both Lagosians. Otori trained as a painter and Opara is a documentary photographer.

For the exhibition, Otori and Opara ran workshops for teenagers in Makoko twice a week for six-months, teaching an awareness of formal aspects of image making and the basics of photography. From the initial 15 students, five made it to the end. Works by four of them – Anthony Monday, Afose Suleiman, Mary Awajinumi, and Peter Onge – are now on show in their own neighborhood.
