Eks’Vee: NTU MA Photography degree show
Exhibition: 20th September – 4th October
Alan Lodge comes from a free festival and traveller background. Living in old busses, trucks and caravans, he drove around the country on ‘the circuit’ with his family and friends. Since the late 1970’s he has been photographing events and the people around him.
Dealing with aspects of ‘alternative’ lifestyles and sub-cultures. Photographing many free and commercial events, ‘free party’ events (‘rave culture’), environment protest, land rights with surrounding social concerns. He aims to present a more positive view of people and communities that are frequently misrepresented.
More recently covering political actions and protest involving policing operations.
Unfortunately, a common thread to these subjects is the police use of surveillance and undercover methods against such groups. It is thought by many that this is to deter people from legitimate political activity and not the criminal and anti-social behaviour that is claimed.
If you have nothing to hide …. You have nothing to fear.
