Jo Teasdale: My Adopted Family

6 August22 August

‘My Adopted Family’ is a photographic project exploring the concepts of family, memories and inheritance.

Using cherished possessions collected over time, Jo has created her own family history. This is a personal narrative that invites the viewer to travel through time and participate in the stories that unfold around them.

Jo uses large-scale prints to exaggerate the realness of objects and creative displays to transform the identity and personalities of the subjects. Her abstracts, created from extreme circumstances, produce images akin to Rothko and Blake.

Opening Days & Times | Monday – Saturday, 11am – 5pm (closed Sundays)

About the Artist

Jo Teasdale comes from a Fine Art background and has worked in the arts for many years. Since moving to Brighton she took up photography and hasn’t looked back. Having won Landscape Photographer of the Year -Take a View -2013, she has gone on to win various competitions, been published in books and had work shown in various exhibitions.

Jo is an eclectic photographer who celebrates the realness of life through documentary and street photography. In her project work she shows a slower more conceptual approach emanating from her fine art background. Her work is an artistic form of self-expression, poignant and edgy, often unveiling elements of our human nature. ‘My Adopted Family’ is her latest major body of work since being awarded her Fellowship from the Royal Photographic Society in 2016 for her portfolio entitled ‘The Factory’.
