Contemporary photography is entering a limitless post-analogue phase of innovation. In 2014 Aesthetica handpicked a selection of promising young photographers, in partnership with London College of Communication. We are thrilled to be reprising this collaboration, highlighting the next round of international photographers working across documentary, fine art and experimental digital media. These creatives are pushing the limits of photography through cross-platform experimentation. They have exhibited at Serpentine Gallery and Rencontre d’Arles, whilst winning prestigious awards from the likes of Deutsche Bank, and have been published in Dazed & Confused, Financial Times, It’s Nice That, Wallpaper and the British Journal of Photography, amongst others. The current selection reflects the evolution of the contemporary photographic medium, and demarcates its future direction – these artists are the ones to watch. www.arts.ac.uk/lcc.
