REMINDER FOR TUESDAY 5 JUNE, 6PM-8PM Private View: I CALL THIS PLACE HOME Photographs by Tanya Ahmed
Tuesday, 5 June 2012 from 18:00 to 20:00 (BST)
Sheffield, United Kingdom
In the late 1960s,Magnum photographer and chronicler of the American civil rights movement Bruce Davidson spent two years working on what became one of his most famous projects, East 100th Street.
Exploring the interior spaces and life on the street of the inhabitants of a block in New York's East Harlem, his black and white images are acknowledged as a classic documentation of the American ghetto. The work from the finished project was displayed in the city's Museum of Modern Art and published in 1970 as a book of the same title.
In I call this place home, Tanya Ahmed takes her creative relationship with the built environment to new levels. This collection of images, on public display for the first time, captures the place she has called home for 14 years. We meet the people who are her neighbours, current residents of the tenement Davidson captured more than four decades ago.
Tanya Ahmed will be talking about her work, East 100th Street
and the legacy of Bruce Davidson, during the evening.
Tanya, who is British, had her first photographic spread published in The Reading Evening Post when she was 16. After studying for a BTEC in photography at Berkshire College of Art and Design, she worked as a freelance photographer in the UK, Australia and the US, moving to the US in 1993.
I call this place home - Photographs by Tanya Ahmed is the first exhibition in a new collaboration between innovative cross-disciplinary Sheffield arts centre Bank Street Arts and OCA, which offers BA Honours degrees in photography, painting, fine art, textiles, visual communications, music and creative writing.
Soft drinks and light refreshments served.
