This is an interesting looking show across 2 venues in Sunderland, the Northern Gallery of Contemporary Art and the Sunderland Museum and Art Gallery. "Many of the artists might be described as working in anthropological or ethnographic ways, observing how our experience of the world is mediated through the camera lens, and asking how far photographic images structure our imagination."
This show is part of a month long 'photography' event; The Social, Encountering Photography. Lots of other shows + talks and events etc going on from 18th October - 16th November, although the show in Sunderland Museum (where there are a series of synched Classroom Video Portraits on 4 large monitors) will continue until 23rd February.
6 Mois Magazine has recently published 16 pages of Classroom Portraits.
