Colin Gray - Caught Between
11th February - 23rd April 2023
Caught Between is a new monographic exhibition by photographer Colin Gray and forms the third chapter in his autobiographical exploration of memory, loss and the family album - a journey which he commenced over four decades ago.
Earlier chapters of this journey formed two highly influential exhibitions, both of which were exhibited at Street Level Photoworks - The Parents, which he commenced in 1980 and was shown in 1997, and In Sickness and in Health, which he began in 2000 and was first exhibited in 2010.
This new body of works provides a multi-layered approach dealing with the challenges of intergenerational family life: ageing, the space between life and death, the shifts in roles of dependence and the ongoing cycles of life.
Colin Gray was born in Hull, England, in 1956. He received a first-class BA (Hons) in graphic design in 1980 and a MA in photography from the Royal College of Art, London, in 1982. He has exhibited widely in Europe and his work has toured to China and Australia. His images have been featured in a number of books including ‘The Photograph as Contemporary Art’ (Thames & Hudson 2004) and ‘Family Photography Now’ (Thames & Hudson 2016), and in two monographs: ‘The Parents’ (Fotofeis 1995) and ‘In Sickness and in Health’ (Steidl-Mack 2010).
A minigraph with an article by Alasdair Foster is available here . Alasdair is a writer and curator and is the author and publisher of TALKING PICTURES , which features in-depth interviews with photographers from around the world.
