I’m really pleased to announce that as part of this event, Dai Howell and I will be showing our collaborative work GLEAN as part of AS WE SEE IT – the inaugural exhibition and launch of PHRAME, a new collective focused on promoting and supporting active and emerging female photographers in Cardiff and South Wales. The official launch for PHRAME will be on Thursday 12th April at The Gate in Cardiff – follow PHRAME on Instagram for the latest news leading up to the launch.

DIFFUSION 2019’s theme is SOUND + VISION, exploring the relationship between sound, photography and lens-based media, how in contemporary visual culture the transmission, presentation and reading of images is influenced by sound, and similarly how music is experienced visually as well as aurally.

I’ll be sharing more details on here as soon as they’re announced – until then hope you will be able to join us during the launch of PHRAME as well as the wider programme of events during DIFFUSION in April. x
