FRESH FOCUS at Stills is a new community for graduate photographers where they can seek peer criticism and support for their creative endeavours. The aim of the group is simple - to bring fresh practitioners together in a focused and supportive environment with the intention of fuelling critical engagement, promoting good working practices and connecting them to the wider photographic community.

The group meets twice a month at Stills (one weekday evening and one weekend) for a critique of work in development. Stills also supports the group to develop a programme of talks, critiques with guest speakers, pop-up exhibitions and participation in a range of events.

You should consider joining if you are:

  • In the early stages of your photographic career 
  • Making concept-driven thematic bodies of work 
  • Familiar with providing and receive critical feedback on such work 
  • Motivated to attend two critiques each month with new work to show 
  • Driven to develop your professional practice

Membership is for three years from the date of joining.
