It is What is Was

The world is in flux.

The question of identity has troubled humanity for centuries, but now in a technological age of communication, economic crisis and rapid change we are confronted more than ever with the question: who are we? 

Thirty-four emerging photojournalists from around the globe respond to this crisis in a variety of creative and thought-provoking ways. Spanning continents, ethnicities and personal boundaries, this exhibition showcases the height of photographic practise combined with the probing insight of quality documentary and first-class journalism. It comes as the conclusion to the internationally acclaimed MA Documentary Photography and Photojournalism at the London College of Communication. 

A cohort of multi-award-winning image makers, this group addresses and challenges the question of identity in the modern world, with approaches ranging from the classically photojournalistic to the contemporary and conceptual, and will introduce audiences to issues on the international stage, from the Occupy Movement in the US, to the intimate and personal, such as an insight into gender reassignment.
