Monday 3rd December: "Another England: Human Stories" at NOW Gallery


Human Stories: Another England was a photographic exhibition surveying historical (100 years) and contemporary narratives in Black and Asian Heritage in England.  Here you can see a selection of the images curated by Kaia Charles including Notting Hill Carnival and portraits of couples at a Lovers' Rock night both from the late 1970's.  The show amassed rare archival imagery, photography and ephemera as insight into origins of diasporic migration, religion, home and working life.
The show at NOW Gallery also presented a series of new photographic commissions that reflect multicultural heritage for contemporary diversity.  Here are two of the artists: Theo White and Nina Manandhar with her documentation of "Gurkhas Sons".  She also exhibited a separate study of street-style from her project "What We Wore" as a series of postcards including portraits of Gilles Peterson and Mr. Hare from their sartorial youth.  
Congrats to NOW Gallery for constantly compiling compelling shows............. and a special appreciation from me for the private view on this one which had SOCA provided by Just Vibez!
