Event Details

“U me = US” Soulmates and single mums.

Photographic portraits by Jojo

Consisting of two categories, the first, individuals who have chosen to grow old beside one another and the second, single mums photographed with their children.

A total of 32 portraits ranging in size from A4 up to A1.

Influenced by the artist Robert Lenkiewicz, Jojo has been documenting the people of Plymouth, in books and exhibitions for twenty years and although best known for his naked portraits, he has made projects in which his subjects have kept their clothes on: this exhibition features no nudity!

Under the heading “U ME = US” Jojo is making a series of projects featuring “real people” over the next two years, exploring different categories, (such as “fathers and sons” and “people and pooches” both currently in development) in a quest to capture something of the essence of the mystery that connects us to those we love.

Photographing his subjects in their domestic settings and using a traditional approach (including sepia toning the final images), the work creates a powerful juxtaposition between the apparent oldness of the photographic-object and the contemporary feel of the subjects who sit for Jojo’s camera.

Exhibition runs 22/23/24 September Please note, the opening times are Friday and Saturday 10am-10pm, Sunday 10am-4pm
