PHOTOGRAD SELECTIONS

Last year I was invited to select work by graduates that resonated with me, work that PHOTOGRAD had already featured on their page. I found some wonderful work https://www.photograd.co.uk/chloe-juno/ Clear Cut by Christoph Soeder was a body of work I was already familiar with having featured on Documenting Britain Instagram Thank you PHOTOGRAD for asking me.

These selections were made by Chloe Juno, creative consultant, artist, curator, co-lead Documenting Britain, curator Fishing Quarter Gallery in Brighton.

Clear Cut by  christophsoeder.com/ttsgalerie/clear-cut/   Christoph’s portraits just pop and jump out at you. I am a big fan of old Benetton colours magazines at the time when Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin were the photographers and Creative Directors. I can see this work sitting well within those publications. I love the use of the bright red background to bring out the faces of people after their haircuts. A simple approach that just works. I also enjoy the sense that something new has just finished and the anticipation of maybe wanting to get the cloak off and enjoy the new feeling of a haircut. The strategies that Christoph has employed enables the viewer to really focus in on the different styles portrayed in much more detail. It is an intriguing approach that encourages us to look at an everyday task such as going to the barbers, in a more graphic way.

Fable & Folk interview

This was my first interview in 2018, talking about me and ‘Someone’s Rubbish’ and the work I do. It was really good to reflect and see all the images sit alongside my words. Thank you Charlotte.

IN CONVERSATION WITH CHLOE JUNO | DECEMBER 2018 Our next Fable & Folk interview is with Brighton based documentary photographer Chloe Juno. Her most iconic photographic work is “Someone’s Rubbish” – a long-term project documenting life in the UK through the objects people discard, specifically focusing on Brighton and Hove. As the images build, it paints a picture of a city, what people use to live, to work, for health, for food, for love, for money and then, throw away. Chloe is also known for her curation skills for both the “Documenting Britain” Instagram and the “Fishing Quarter Gallery” based in Brighton.

We wanted to interview Chloe as we think she is a fantastic example of one of the many strong female voices in the documentary photography industry and has many invaluable skills and indispensable experience to pass on to our audience.

Acurator Feature: Wild Flowers, Cornwall, Britain.

I spend so much time working with documentary photography, my flowers and plants are a visual escape for me. soaking up all the colours of nature. Thank you Julie for giving the flowers a platform on www.acurator.com

Wild Flowers, Cornwall, Britain featured on acurator.com Over the past few years I have spent holiday time in a remote location in Cornwall.  Staying in an old chalet with rough paths down to secluded wild beaches.  On my walks up and down I started to photograph the flowers and plants with just my black scarf, a few hair clips and a swiss army knife.  I spend so much time working with documentary photography and living in a city that completely zoning in to the flowers is total escapism, noticing every bit of detail.  Taking photographs, surrounded by just nature. The sun, the wind, the sound of the crickets and birds and waves crashing down below.
