Photoworks West Sussex LGBTQ+ Photography Club 2022
The 2022 Autumn/Winter LGBTQ+ Photography took Queer Utopias as a starting point to explore the way photography can offer us a visual window into the future, allowing us to see and feel beyond the present.
This programme of workshops drew from ideas present in the work of contemporary Queer practitioners around the building of a photographic 'set' to hold and create space for future narratives.

Setting the Scene:
The group's responses to discussions around utopias, their future self, and community formed the final collective outcome - part puzzle pieces, part visual manifesto for the future, and each participant contributed an image. When the collection of images was installed each piece was sometimes hidden, sometimes more visible, and changed with time, angles, and at the hand of different constructors.
