Until 17 July there will be an opportunity to enjoy the full exhibition commissioned as part of LGBT+ History Month’s theme of CATALYST:50 years of activism. This display at Kirkcaldy Galleries is part of the celebrations of Fife Pride on Saturday 6 July.

Visual art and craft organisation Fife Contemporary gave young Fife photographers the opportunity to work with professional artist Jannica Honey. Members of Kirkcaldy’s Flavours of Fife and St Andrews’ Madras Pride groups considered how the ways we photograph people influence how we relate to them. Their exploration of identity resulted in very high quality work which has been widely featured in the media and starred at a reception hosted by the Secretary of State for Scotland.

Participant Cameron Bowie said “Doing the photography session with Jannica, it showcased the LGBT+ community from the inside, a rare opportunity. Being able to express ourselves with the use of photography and present the work allows us to convey our view of not only the world around us but our community from our prospective. This project has enable us to show our pride and show that while we may be part of the LGBT+ community, we are no different from anyone else…we are just people living life as who we truly are and being happy while doing so.”

Jannica comments: "When Fife Contemporary commissioned me I knew it was an extraordinary opportunity to not only support young people to create art/photography, but also raise awareness around representation and Identity. Human rights are about visibility and LGBT History Month is all about that."  

A digital version of the exhibition with additional images is currently being developed for the Fife Contemporary website.

Fife Contemporary will also be at the Fife Pride Youth Zone where visitors can take selfies to record their visit to the event and choose a caption to send a message with their image.
