In March 2021, photographer Tommy Sussex launched an international open call for photographic submissions. The project brief asked contemporary photographers to interrogate group activities and the phenomenon of crowds and mass gatherings in the age of social distancing. This theme has a new relevance due to the Covid19 virus and its impact on our lives. The images submitted may have been taken before and during the Pandemic.
The resulting photographs sent over for consideration are a mixture of documentary photographs and more metaphoric shots that engage with, reflect on and ruminate around the human phenomenon of mass group activities during a global Pandemic.
This publication and the upcoming exhibition in Peckham, London, offers a newly created community of contributing photographers and future audiences the opportunity to live vicariously through the images. Some of which have a resulting nostalgia or raise potential concerns about health issues as a result of Covid19 and our proximity to others.
This body of photographs is an explosive, intriguing and thought-provoking archive created by a new artistic network of participating artists. Mass Energy facilitates creative connections and explores visual evidence of social activities during a time of drastic change to our social lives and abilities to be close with lovers, family and friends.
The lives of today's youth have been drastically affected by the Pandemic, and all profits from Mass Energy Zine and Exhibition will be donated to UK's leading mental health charity for young people. youngminds.org.uk/
This project will culminate in a physical exhibition in collaboration with Bibliotecha_Kyiv. This event will take place mid-late May in Peckham, London, when social distancing restrictions are lifted. More information about the physical exhibition in Peckham, London will be posted on https://www.instagram.com/tommy_sussex/ and https://massenergyproject.cargo.site/
I want to thank all participating photographers for sending work and being a part of this initiative. This project would not have been possible without you.
