In episode 190 UNP founder and curator Grant Scott is in his shed reflecting on creative freedom, preparing digital images for print and this year’s Christmas for photographers.
Plus this week photographer Jefferey Stockbridge take’s on the challenge of supplying Grant with an audio file no longer than 5 minutes in length in which he answer’s the question ‘What Does Photography Mean to You?’
Jeffrey Stockbridge was born in 1982 and is a Philadelphia-based photographer and fine art printer. Stockbridge graduated from Drexel University in 2005 and opened a premier fine-art printing business, Stockbridge Fine Art Print in 2009. He is known for his large-format colour photographs that document and humanize the elusive underbelly of inner-city life and his work has been featured in group exhibitions at The National Portrait Gallery in London, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Delaware Art Museum, The Woodmere Art Museum, The Fleisher Art Memorial and the DCCA. His body of work, Kensington Blues, documents the trials and tribulations of those affected by drug addiction and prostitution along Kensington Avenue in North Philadelphia. Audio interviews, journal entries and photographs, made over a period of five years, come together to tell the stories of those struggling to survive the neighbourhood and themselves. www.jeffreystockbridge.com
