FRESH FOCUS at Stills

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 and members are expected to attend at least one critique meet-up per month to maintain their place in the group.

 
If you are interested in joining the group simply fill in the form below and we'll get back in touch within a week. If you have any questions you can email nic.rue@stills.org.

Proposals

Stills has a gallery space in which it presents four exhibitions a year. The research and development towards our exhibition programme is delivered by a specialist team of staff up to three years in advance of each project.

We receive numerous requests for feedback on work and proposals for exhibitions at Stills but, due to limitations on staff time, we are only able to respond if we are interested in requesting more information.

If you would like to make us aware of your work or an exhibition proposal, please email to: ben.harman@stills.org We recognize that this is an important way for us to learn about work that we may not be aware of.

Volunteer Opportunities

Stills recruits Front-of-House volunteers for each exhibition and will advertise all opportunities here when positions are available.
