A Different Mirror. Photographs from the Hyman Collection. : Photo Oxford Festival, Oxford

15 October - 15 November 2021

A Different Mirror presents a dialogue between two generations of socially engaged photographers from the pioneering work of Jo Spence and Alexis Hunter, grounded in 1970s feminism, to the recent projects of three young artists: Heather Agyepong, Eliza Hatch and Bindi Vora.

Selected from The Hyman Collection, the private collection of Claire and James Hyman, the exhibition explores the ways in which these photographers use words as well as images to address political and social issues. Informed by anti-racism, feminism and environmentalism, the photographers in A Different Mirror make art that reflects society and approach the art work as an active tool for education and transformation.
