This is the 'on-line' version of a physical exhibition 'DISTINCTIVELY DIFFERENT' that was presented in September, 2018. This exhibition was part of the 'Narrating Identity' section of 'Landings 2018, an international collection of current work by students and staff of the Online MA Photography course at Falmouth University. See the link and snappy video at the bottom of the page for more detail.
'DISTINCTIVELY DIFFERENT' is an illustration of an ongoing project began in module 3 "Informing Choices" of my MA course, a selection of a number of enterprising shopkeepers of Croydon. Shops where proprietors have created establishments that are distinctively different from those around them.
A collection of twelve photographic prints and a TV screen presentation of short video pieces was exhibited at La Zaris Art Gallery, Croydon (UK) from the 3rd to the 8th September, 2018.
