Impressions Gallery


Studio exhibition: Knockout

Tue, 10th Mar, 2009

Knockout was created by a group young people from Bradford, in collaboration with Impressions Gallery, Kala Sangam, Bradford Youth Offending Team and Nacro.

The group worked with photographer Shanaz Gulzar to create a series of photographs that explore the movement created by local Thai boxers from Bradford. The group started by exploring how to capture a moving image using digital cameras and then went onto photograph the boxers from Bradford Thai boxing ring, to capture the movement and motion they create as they train.

The group drew inspiration from James Pogson’s Ladykillers, shown as part of the Jerwood Photography Awards 2008 at Impressions Gallery. His brightly coloured portraits explore the confidence and strong-willed nature of UK female Thai boxers.

The exhibition runs from 10 March to 3 April 2009. Free entry.
The Studio is sometimes closed for education events, so please call ahead before travelling.
