Geordie, Mackem Magick - Sophie Lisa Beresford
17 March 2016 - 05 June 2016
Sunderland-based Sophie Lisa Beresford sees astonishing beauty in the everyday, and finds magic and wonder in the most ordinary places. Her large-scale photographs picture her own, personal mythology of Sunderland, across both its gritty, urban sides and its beautiful green spaces. Beresford won the Culture Award’s ‘Newcomer of the Year’ and is one of the most distinctive and original visions to come out of the city in many years.
