Photoworks Ideas top ten

2014 was a busy year for Photoworks. Here we reflect on the year's top articles from the Ideas series.

From Queer in Brighton to Brighton Photo Biennial 2014, Photoworks Ideas has called upon writers, editors, curators and other photo experts to expand on some of the themes explored in Photoworks’ core programme.

Highlights include Sharif Mowlabowcus’s analysis of queer self-representation on apps like Grindr; Erica Scourti’s conversational collaboration with a forum of posters and Chris Steele Perkins reflections on the Exit Photography Group.
