The Steve Project is a collaboration between two UCLan alumni – Claire Angel and Karl Child – who study the importance of family photography and the traditional display methods within the family home. The work is an in-depth study of the psychological reasoning behind the notion to curate and exhibit family photography. Over three years their research and data collection will result in a series of community based workshops, exhibitions and a photobook alongside an academic research paper aiming to inform and educate students and artists on the significance and relevance of traditional family photography in a digital age.
Through a series of professionally organised house sitting assignments they plan to travel around England documenting the inevitable exhibitions curated by the family members and home owners. By doing this they will gain knowledge and understanding which will allow them to identify and analyse certain concepts such as patterns and trends, dynamics and power alignments within relationships, subconscious decisions made by all participants and the interactions between the physical prints and each family member including the curator and observer.

The ongoing work is also on show at The PrintSpace

Psuedo by Wayne Daniel

Psuedo is the first Solo Show of photographic works by UCLan graduate Wayne Daniel
“The archive of Dr. Walter Verbogden c1958 – 1964 concerns the validity and truth of the Chimera, which employs the splicing together of DNA of two or more animal species to create a new heightened species. This idea, although mythical at its route, is very possible with modern technology and advances in the field of genetics.
It is only in today’s society that morals and ethics fully police the world and work of science, especially in relation to genetics. As shown in the images, found by the photographer and carefully reprinted using traditional darkroom methods, the use of technology to indulge in pseudo-scientific ideas of creating new species has been employed in past decades.
The work presented is curated from parts of a discovered archive dated between 1958 and 1964, shown along with what appears to be German transcripts of the scientific processes employed and the byproducts of the creation of these ‘animals’. All artifacts were discovered at a car boot sale by the photographer and the seller had little knowledge about the many slides of film he possessed after buying the entire contents of a storage facility at auction which contained vintage medical equipment.”

Josh Payne & Bart Staszowski had the opportunity to assist Amberly Valentine (Uclan Alumni) during the shoot for the relaunch of Hedonist magazine in conjunction with Hasselblad, Republik agency and Luxe pr.
“It was a very glossy, sexy feeling shoot with 3 professional models, top make-up artists, hair stylists and stylists. It was in Velasquez suite in Cadogan Gardens, which is a swanky hotel in Knightsbridge. We both played parts in lighting set up and the general roles that an assistant is requested to do, ie brew breaks. It was a great opportunity to take part in & hopefully we will stay in touch with Amberly & other creatives that were involved.” – Josh and Bart
Berlin has one of the worlds most renowned contemporary art scenes, visiting the many art spaces is a fundamental aspect of experiencing the city. Day four included trips to a number of established Museums and some smaller independently run galleries. The particularly interesting element of these two examples is the varied display method used to present the work.
