brokenbench is a partnership of artists: Spiro Miralis, Sean Davey, Therese Harrison, James Alcock, Michele Mossop, Mayu Kanamori. It was set up to support personal and individual approaches to photography. Members share a strong belief that diversity within the medium is vital in stimulating and encouraging personal ways of looking at the world.
brokenbench derives its name from a photograph made in 1962 by Hungarian photographer Andre Kertesz, who made a photograph of a broken bench while visiting a family friend who had been admitted to a mental hospital in Brooklyn, New York. Kertesz’s pioneering and independent style of documnetary photography has influenced many of the world’s most highly regarded photographers.
This is the first group exhibition showcasing works by member artists
