The Social: Framing Your Work


The Social is our bi-monthly advice and networking session for photographers, where participants are encouraged to network and join the conversation. Deliberately informal, each event includes two presentations by photography professionals, who offer tips or advice on the chosen theme, with a short break in between for socialising.

This session focuses on framing, particularly in relation to one's own practice, with short talks by photographer Jonny Briggs and artist, writer and bespoke framer, Ollie Gapper.

Jonny Briggs studied at Chelsea College of Art (BA, 2008), and Royal College of Art (MA 2011) in London. Exhibitions include Photoforum Pasquart Photography Museum in Switzerland, N Contemporary, hosted at MC2 Gallery in Milan, Marie-Laure Fleisch in Rome, Julie Meneret in New York City, The Benaki Museum in Greece, Saatchi Gallery, Shanghai Ziang Cheng Centre of Photography in China, 176 Zabludowicz Collection, Jerwood Space and Photographers' Gallery in London, L'Atelier Néerlandais in Paris, Centre Photographique in Normandy, The Marta Herford Museum in Germany, Fondazione Fotografia Modena, Hauser & Wirth Somerset, Stilll Gallery and Galerie d'YS in Belgium and East Wing Gallery in Dubai. 

Ollie Gapper is a photographic artist and Ph.D. researcher with an established practice as a bespoke frame maker. His approach foregrounds the creative intention of his clients, bringing the sensibilities of cabinet making and furniture design to the design and construction of his frames and installation pieces.
