Photo|Frome: Decolonising Environments
Saturday 24th June - Wednesday 12th July
10am to 4pm daily
Decolonising Evironments explores the complex and often conflicting relationships between human communities, places, and the natural world. Encompassing a range of styles, subjects and genres, Photo|Frome invites photographers and audiences to contribute to discussions around the social and
environmental impacts of longstanding political, cultural, and economic ideas about our world.
‘Decolonising’ is usually defined as a process of self-determination and unlearning of the social and cultural constructs created by an established and maintained system of dominion of one group over another. ‘Decolonising Environments’ expands this concept, to encourage a wider examination of social, environmental, and cultural issues through the subjectivity of the photographer’s individual gaze.
