Focus on Photography: Joanne Coates

1.30 – 3.30pm

Friends of the Hatton

A talk by Joanne Coates, a working-class visual artist using the medium of photography.

Joanne Coates lives and works across the North East of England. Her work explores rurality, hidden histories, and inequalities relating to low income through photography, installations, and audio. She uses photography to question stories around power, identity, wealth, and poverty. She was first educated in working-class communities, and then at London College of Communication (BA Hons Photography). Participation and working with communities are an important aspect of her work.
