Touchstones Rochdale Gallery; the Nowruz/New Day exhibition.
19 September 2019, 18:30 to 19:30

Nowruz/New Day presents the results of the unique collaboration between the Art Fund Collection of Middle Eastern Photography, assembled by the British Museum and the V&A and the Global Conversations, a group of refugees who meet on a weekly basis at nearby St. Chad’s Church in Rochdale who co-curated the exhibition with Touchstones. The exhibition poses a range of critical questions about the collection of Middle Eastern Photography and, more generally, how the Middle East is presented through the media.

Portraits change the way we understand one another. Whether this is professional photos, selfies on Instagram or snapshots of our friends, the photos that we take of ourselves and each other speak volumes about who we are and who we want to be. Through portraits, we come face to face with someone else: they create a space in which we can challenge the assumptions that we often hold about people. This exhibition presents projects that give us a chance to empathise, to consider the experience of someone else’s life.


25 September 2019, 18:30 to 20:00

Almudena Romero is a visual artist working with a wide range of photographic processes from early printing techniques such as wet plate collodion, to new technologies including 3D scanning. Almudena uses photographic processes to reflect on issues relating to identity, representation and ideology; such as the role of photography in the construction of national identity, or the link between photographic archives and colonialism.

The State of Photography will consider, explore, debate and review how photographers and photography practice develops and responds in this political moment. How do we look at our world today, how do we collaborate and work with communities and what does the world look like to photographers?
