human endeavour, photography, thoughts and ideas

Human Endeavour Exhibition at BPF 2008

As part of the Brighton Photo Fringe in 2008, Alex Currie, Richard Chivers, Murray Ballard and Simon Carruthers exhibited for the first time under the collective of Human Endeavour. The show was funded by the Arts Council  and the four participants attempted to convey ideas of human intervention and activity in the 21st century, which included the societal impacts of re-cycling, geological and human intervention through quarrying, thoughts of death and immortality observed through cryogenics and the impacts of globalisation and homogenisation, as reflected in one of the worlds biggest ports and beyond. The show ran for six weeks for the duration of the Photo Fringe and Brighton Photo Biennial. As well as achieving all the criteria set out by the Arts Council, the show was a great success, with upwards of 1000 visitors, and many online and printed reviews in a variety of publications such as Source and Foto8 magazines.
