EXPOSURE: CAMPBELL ADDY

In these socially and politically divisive times, the need for creatives to offer new visions of the world is more urgent than ever. Work that unites us, deepens our understanding of each other and acts as a counterpoint to hateful narratives is critical for our evolution. Photographers are in a unique position to bear witness to the events of our time and create work that renders the invisible, visible. This new wave of visual activism is driven by image makers like Amaal Said, Nadine Ijewere and Campbell Addy. Through their work they are reshaping the conventions of representation. Fiercely defiant towards cultural stereotypes, they address race and gender politics in dynamic new ways.

Campbell Addy's powerful work is the focus of my latest column forĀ Creative Review, which celebrates emerging talent and photographers redefining the medium.
