Photo Show – Cream 15: a showcase of Graduate Photography Talent University of Brighton

This is a quick post to highlight a few bodies of work that I found of interest at Cream 15: a showcase of Graduate Photography Talent curated by Richard Kalman from Crane Kalman at the University of Brighton until 30 October. What immediately struck me was the number of works marking a return to black and white image making as well as the use of  traditional and alternative photographic processes.

My first pick in one of three posts is the work, Duelos y Quebranto (Duels and Destruction), by Sebastian Bruno (website coming soon) from the University of South Wales, Newport. Cream1

I liked this work for a number of reasons not least for the photographer’s eye for the absurd, the surrealist aesthetic in some of the images, the edit, and the way Bruno has responded visually to Cervantes’ Don Quixote. The work is shot in Castilla La Mancha and is, writes the photographer: “this brutal, but sincere, interpretation, a personal journey that delves into the lives and the moral universe of the inhabitants of Castilla La Mancha”.
