Overview participating exhibitions
Just as pilgrims flock together at holy places, where they meet one another and forge bonds, the festival calender brings together large groups of young people. During festivals, Venetia Dearden says, young people find their ‘tribe’ or ‘community’. EIGHT DAYS is the result of a personal journey that the photographer undertook in 2010 with a group of her friends, during a road trip through California and Nevada. They entered an ‘alternative reality, far from the well-ordered everyday world’.
Venetia Dearden (Great Britain, 1975) studied anthropology a the University of Edinburgh, a course that awakened her wanderlust. On her journeys of discovery she began to record the world that she encountered in work that was spontaneous and emotionally charged. She has published the books Glastonbury, Another Stage (2010) and Eight Days (2011). In 2011 she became a member of the VII Photo Agency.
