Exhibition of Drifting by the Leeds & Liverpool

Exhibition of Drifting by the Leeds & Liverpool

I’m delighted to share my Drifting by the Leeds & Liverpool project with the people of Leeds and beyond in an outdoor exhibition around the Leeds Canal Basin area. The exhibition features installations that link the viewer to the film and project website through QR codes and mobile technology. It asks the question ‘what will you see today?’ as a prompt for viewers to engage in the everyday condition of the canal’s landscape; a theme that runs through the Drifting by The Leeds and Liverpool short film.

The project has a dedicated website that shares information about its making and collaborators in the making of the short film. So far, the work has been featured on BBC Radio Merseyside, in The Yorkshire Post and local press. It was also one of twenty finalists in the Association of Photographers’ student awards (places category).

Please visit the photos of the exhibition at https://leedsandliverpool.co.uk/exhibitions and let me know what you think in the visitor guest book below.

Wow! Wow! Wow! This is a stunning exhibition Andrew. I really the way that you have spread it out along the canal sites, a little like Shimon Attie's work. Well done!

What a wonderful collection of images, you have certainly made use of a variety of display areas. I am a canal boater and the vista each day is always different, a moving landscape, you have brought to attention the beauty and interest of canals. Congratulations on completing your degree.

I was wondering how you were going to top that wonderful stills film and I'm delighted to see that you did. I love the in situ installations, they look great. The work puts me in mind a little of Sleeping by the Mississippi, and that's high praise from me as that's one of my all-time favourite photography projects. You should be very proud of your achievement!

Impressive exhibition! Brings “Drifting “ to life in a different (but equally enjoyable) way to the video and soundtrack. Well worth a look!
