Mass Energy Group Exhibition and Zine (2021)







In March 2021, I  launched an international open call for photographic submissions. The project brief asked contemporary photographers to interrogate group activities and the phenomenon of human crowds and mass gatherings in the age of social distancing. This theme had a new relevance due to the Covid19 virus and its impact on society and our abilities to connect and socialise. The images submitted could have been taken before or during the Pandemic.

The last year of our lives has been defined by social distancing and a new relationship to physical proximity as a result of the Coronavirus Global Pandemic. The social fabric of society has been dramatically altered and this is an unprecedented transformation in the modern era. I didn’t feel like enough was being done to look at the impact of this new enforced social disconnection on our lives and minds. I set about creating a brief that asked international image-makers to explore group activities, crowd behaviour and mass gatherings through the prism of the Pandemic. By collaborating through the Mass Energy project a newly established community of image-makers will be able to examine this theme and build a unique knowledge base which results in the form of the Mass Energy exhibition collection and photo zine/publication.

The resulting photographs submitted for the exhibition a zine were a blend of documentary photographs and more metaphoric shots that engage with, reflect on and ruminate around the human phenomenon of mass group activities through my mindset of a global Pandemic.

The lives of today's youth have been drastically affected by the Pandemic, and all profits from Mass Energy Zine and Exhibition were donated to UK's leading mental health charity for young people youngminds.org.uk/
