LIP Constructed Realities Group

We will be holding our August meeting on the afternoon of the 20th on the Southbank if you would like to come along please contact me for further details

Constructed Realities is a LIP group specialising in staged imagery and constructed still life photography, organised by Nick Cobb and Graeme Webb.

The term “constructed” refers to bodies of works of photography in which the motif or theme has been staged especially for the image, and in which the artist, in addition to their role as photographer, also plays the part of narrator, director, stage and costume designer, lighting engineer, set builder and even subject. The group also encompasses still life photographers who work in collage or montage and manipulate or manage objects and materials to create narrative images.

Nick and Graeme publish and exhibit their work on a regular basis and are looking to work with other like minded artists to communicate ideas, collaborate and work towards a group exhibition in 2011/12.

For examples of photographers who work in this genre can we suggest the following:

Miniature Staged: Ellen Brooks, Slinkachu & Arthur Tress.

Staged Photography: Cindy Sherman & Gregory Crewdson.

Still Life: Calum Colvin
