We are delighted to announce that Morley College London’s Chelsea Centre for the Creative Industries is supporting “Revival, London 1989-1993” a photographic exhibition by documentary photographer and film-maker Roy Mehta.
Roy – a London based photographer – documented Brent in the late 1980s and early 1990s using a large format camera, engaging most notably with communities of Afro-Caribbean and Irish backgrounds. He captured their daily rituals depicting Brent’s flourishing multiculturalism. This series has been recently published as a book by Hoxton Mini Press, which led to this exhibition, which is part of Brent 2020 London Borough of Culture Festival.
The photography department at Morley’s Chelsea Centre welcomed Roy in February 2021 as a guest speaker to talk about his photographic work and professional practice, that being part of the HNC/HND photography enrichment program.
Having established a relationship with Roy, we have been in conversations with him and secured some work experience for our students during the exhibition period, as well as a portrait masterclass in Brent using 5X4 cameras, and an exhibition talk delivered by Roy and Laura Noble the curator.
“Revival, London 1989-1993” is supported by Morley College London among other partners such as, Arts Council England, National Lottery, Brent 2020 London Borough of Culture, Being Brent and Spectrum Photographic.
The exhibition will take place at the Exhibition space in The Library at Willesden Green, 95 High Road, Willesden NW10 2SF from 17 March – 29 May 2022.
