My name is Paul Alexander Knox and I’m a documentary photographer working to examine social and cultural structures both locally and globally. In the North East of England I have focused on industrial history and the changing social structure impacted by the loss of industry, as seen through changes in social housing and land use.
My practice varies in form from traditional black and white to more formal considered colour images, all examining people and place. My photography has been widely exhibited, and has been awarded several international awards.
The image above is from Shadow Boxing, which is new work exploring unlicensed and bare knuckle boxing, a project I’m finding both terrifying and exhilarating in equal measure.

Racing Age - Angela Jimenez

“Master’s track & field athletes around the world are redefining what the ageing body is capable of. This series focuses on athletes of retirement age and older, people who are living longer and better they are continually breaking age group records for running, jumping and throwing that would have seemed impossible even a few decades ago. In an ageing (and age-obsessed) society, they have chosen a surprising and fierce approach to getting old.”

– Angela Jimenez

Side Gallery - Exhibition Opening Event

Saturday 18th October . 2pm . Side Gallery . Free

A chance to meet Kai Wiedenhöfer and hear him talk about his work.
As usual, complimentary refreshments will be provided.

Exhibition

18th October - 21st December 2014

In 1989, Kai Wiedenhöfer photographed the fall of the Berlin Wall in his hometown, and was deeply moved by this experience of history unfolding.

At the time, Wiedenhöfer, like many, believed this event would mark the end of walls being employed as political tools and dismissed them as anachronistic instruments of division.

Over twenty years later, history has proved us wrong; indeed, walls have enjoyed a barbaric renaissance. Border barriers have been erected in the US, Europe, and the Middle East in the aftermath of political, economic, religious and ethnic conflicts. Wiedenhöfer has documented walls in Belfast, Ceuta and Melilla, Baghdad, the Occupied Palestinian Territories, the American- Mexican border, Cyprus, Korea as well as the remains of the Iron Curtain.

Confrontier presents Wiedenhöfers comprehensive project and evidences his conviction that walls are not solutions to todays political and economic problems, but proof of human weakness, error and our inability to communicate with one another.

Kai Wiedenhöfer, born in Schwenningen, Germany, in 1966, received a Masters in photography and editorial design from the Folkwang School in Essen and studied Arabic in Damascus, Syria. Since 1989 the focus of his work has been the Middle East. Wiedenhöfer has received numerous awards including the Leica Medal of Excellence, the Alexia Foundation For World Peace Grant, World Press Photo Awards, the Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography and the Carmignac Gestion Photojournalism Award.

EXHIBITION OPENING HOURS:
11-5PM (TUESDAY - SATURDAY) UNTIL 7PM (THURSDAYS) 12-4PM (SUNDAYS)
