Hazel Plater: The Re-emergence

9am – 5pm

Newcastle Contemporary Art

Newcastle Contemporary Art presents a solo exhibition by local photographer Hazel Plater in the High Bridge Works foyer.

Following the Covid-19 pandemic, Hazel Plater returned to the streets of Newcastle upon Tyne to record the re-emergence of people into the public space.

Photographed in a candid street style, the works in this social documentary series are sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant, and a celebration of the resilience, hope and pride that is found in community. These are ‘quick pics of people doing stuff’ and simultaneously a nuanced reflection on humanity, ourselves and our challenges.
