Into View is a new exhibition dedicated to emerging photographers selected by the Photofusion Gallery Committee from the 2013 summer BA and MA degree graduate shows.
The exhibition collectively explores the concepts of space, architecture, alienation and identity through photographic archival found footage, staged domestic settings and video. Each artist is presenting an extended body of work since graduating and the exhibition brings into view some of the directions emerging photographers are currently taking.

Sharon O’Neill’s project Flats is a photographic exploration of an architect’s vision of the ‘modern world’ as told through the lives of the current inhabitants of one of his buildings. Through a mixture of archive material and contemporary photographs, the work centres on a council block constructed in 1956 as part of the massive post-war house-building programme and was designed by Sir John Leslie Martin, principal architect of the Royal Festival Hall. Flats is presented in the form of photographic prints mixed with extractions of archive material and accompanied by a book.
