Island communities celebrated in new photography exhibition

Friday 03 February 2023

From beekeepers to fishermen... A new photography exhibition opening this evening will aim to showcase the vibrance and diversity of Jersey's communities.

Held in the Link Gallery adjoining Jersey Museum, 'Our Island Communities' will bring together a small collective of local contemporary photographers.

This group of up-and-coming photographic talents have set about documenting, engaging with and immortalising the lived experiences of local communities. 

The photographers involved in the exhibition include Will Lakeman, Max Burnett, Anar Noonan, Max Le Feuvre, Max Baudains and Shan O’Donnell.

Shan O'Donnell, the Curator of the exhibition, said: “It’s always exciting to see photographers make projects about their home and local communities.

"It’s important for our islands history to document ourselves and others as we are now so future generations see how vast our islanders experiences were in 2023.

"I wanted to bring these photographers together to form a collective of individuals who can inspire, support and collaborate with one another.”
