Public order policing has led to a vast increase in surveillance, which I why I made this selection.

“Modern intelligence-led policing is a fully-fledged business model that collects large volumes of data from various sources, and carries out sophisticated network analysis. It creates personal profiles, maps networks, associations and connections, and predicts how individuals and groups will act. This does not aim merely to detect, investigate and prosecute offences, but to prevent unwanted events and activities from occurring in the first place. Disruption and deterrence sit at the heart of ‘intelligence-led’ policing.”

I had originally put pictures up in the Atrium firstly, to get an appreciation of work this size in the space. Also, to examine the appearance and size of the half-tone dots and to be available for criticism in the tutorial with Katja today. I was originally planning to take it down directly after this.

However, I noticed quite a number of people checking it out and had a fair few complimentary comments. Having also advertised it on photography and other facebook groups I noted a number of favourable comments and email.

With this in mind, I approached the Gallery Manager who offered me the space until the next show on the 10th April. The school administration made the booking officially. I am grateful for the opportunity to display in such a central location within the university.

Photography // New exhibition featuring Tom Hunter celebrates 90′s festival spirit and life on the road

A new exhibition at London College of Communication, featuring photographers Tom Hunter and Dave Fawcett, and filmmaker Andrew Gaston, conjures the countercultural spirit of young travelling communities in the 1990’s.

Opening on Wednesday 5 February 2014, Life on the Road captures a remarkable moment in time, in the 1990s, when young people travelled around Europe in a variety of vehicles adapted as homes, forming transitory communities based around festivals, music and a shared rejection of the increasingly consumerist values of Western society.

Travelling in decommissioned buses and vans, these new explorers constructed a vision of a kind of utopia, which is now embedded in our collective memory of the 1990s. From Hunter’s documentary of everyday life on the road, to Fawcett’s meticulous record of traveller buses, and Gaston’s elegiac footage of parties, this exhibition, which is an integral part of LCC Green Week, is both celebration and memorial.

‘Life on the Road’
Opening Party: Wednesday 5 February 2014 6–9pm
Exhibition Open: 6 – 26 February 2014, 10am – 5pm (closed Sunday)
Venue: Upper Street Gallery, London College of Communication, Elephant & Castle SE1 6SB

At the Opening Party Tom Hunter will be signing copies of his book Le Crowbar published by Here Press. Copies of Dave Fawcett’s publication Traveller Homes will also be on sale. 

Win a copy of Tom Hunter’s book Le Crowbar and more in our Instagram competition starting on Friday. Follow @LCCLondon for more details.
