A Family Of are eight Manchester based photographers. The nature of A Family Of is to produce work as a true collective. There will be no individual authorship of work:- all images are a product of the collaboration, working in this way raises questions and challenges ideas around re-appropriation, copyright and the nature of collaborative work.
Twice Removed is an experimental exhibition and publication that explores the themes of â€˜connectionâ€™ and â€˜relationshipâ€™. Our working method for this exhibition reflects our collaborative approach: each member of the group producing a series of visual starting points, the project has evolved by each person visually responding to any of these to make work that creates a dialogue with each others work. As the project develops the images will make connections with other images, not just through common themes and visual styles, but also through collisions and provocations.
