Janeites on Display in Bradford

Impressions Gallery in Bradford is getting ready for its newest exhibition; an exhibition featuring work by the winners of the Jerwood/Photoworks Awards. Included in the exhibition are photographs in the series Where We Belong by Alejandra Carles-Tolra, who has photographed a community of Janeites as they celebrate Jane Austen’s novels. The series explores the relationships between individual and group identity, as well as themes of femininity and escapism.

The photos naturally involve period clothing and reading, but also more unusual activities which aim to keep Austen’s work alive and well.

I am interested in challenging stereotypes and getting a better understanding of who these people are. What drives someone to dress up as if they were in the nineteenth century.

The exhibition will help to inspire the upcoming event at the gallery on Thursday 7th June (2018) from 12:30pm to 1:30pm called Feed Your Mind, in which Marilyn Joice from the Jane Austen Society will be discussing Austen’s life and her famous works on. The event is free to attend.
