Uniquely for a photography exhibition, each photographers work will tour three locations within each month.
The touring nature of this exhibition breaks new ground being the first time this has been done in the UK to our knowledge. We hope this maximises accessibility to all the people of our rich and diverse community.

Jason Florio completed the first recorded circumnavigation of The Gambia by foot, co-leading with his wife Helen Jones-Florio – a 930 km expedition, producing an award-winning series of portraits titled ‘Silafando’.
Three years later he co-led, with Helen Jones Florio his wife, the first recorded expedition of River Gambia from its source in Guinea-Conakry to the Atlantic Ocean, in The Gambia – creating a document of the communities that live along its 1130 km course before a planned dam was constructed.
