Beyond Bonhoga: SIXTEEN

Description of event:

What is it like to be sixteen years old now?

Sat 01st Jun - Sun 30th Jun 2019

Starts 00:00 hrs



Photographer Craig Easton conceived this ambitious project following his engagement with sixteen-year-olds at the time of the Scottish Referendum. It was the first, and as yet only, time that these young people were given the vote in the UK. Building on the success of that work he invited 16 of the UK’s foremost documentary portrait photographers to collaborate with young people across the country to make a visual vox pop on what it means to be sixteen now. The show includes portraits from Shetland alongside those from across the UK

The exhibition forms part of the Beyond Bonhoga off-site exhibition programme and is being shown outside, on the hoarding surrounding the new Hjaltland Housing development on King Harald Street in Lerwick. An accompanying audio-visual component features in Mareel.
