BANK TOP  by photographer Craig Easton examines the representation and misrepresentation of northern communities. The work focuses on a small, tight-knit community in Blackburn, England, which has become synonymous with the use of words like segregation and integration – BBC’s Panorama describing it as ‘the most segregated town in Britain’. Easton’s photographs, alongside texts by writer, poet and social researcher Abdul Aziz Hafiz, aim to confront stereotypes and question the dangerous over-simplification of the challenges facing such communities. They do so by presenting the contemporary experience of residents as an ‘alternative history telling’.

The monochrome, often pixelated images of woodlands in the book are sourced from the internet following a Google image search for the phrase ‘tree surgeon’. Each image features a placed orb which sometimes covers half of the picture surface.

French photographer Cyprien Clément-Delmas and South African photographer Lindokuhle Sobekwa have collaborated to create a portrait of Daleside, a small and isolated Afrikaner suburb south-east of Johannesburg. The two photographers met through the Of Soul and Joy programme, launched by Rubis Mécénat in Thokoza, and became friends. Their resulting images provide a counterpoint of aspirations and distress — looking beyond the deep-seated Black/white binary, they depict the poverty afflicting Black and white residents alike as forgotten members of society.
