Description

His debut photographic exhibition, ‘Afropean: Travels in Black Europe’, was at Foam, Amsterdam in 2020. Robinson's words are as careful as they are masterful ; Pitt's casual gaze is warm and conversational. Mainland America had been really cold, Puerto Rico warm like a tropical African country, and I felt at home, because I associate warmth with home. Unmissable" (The Guardian) - the first UK retrospective of one of the world’s most innovative and influential artists and street photographers.

Home is Not a Place’ is a collaborative work uniting photography, poetry and select prose; this collection potently capturing a psychogeography of Black Britain—from Glasgow to Margate, comprised of both positive and negative exposures—with its aperture fully open to the synergy and synchronicity of Black joy. Johny Pitts' Afropean: Notes from Black Europe was published last year to critical acclaim, and was recently awarded the 2020 Jhalak Prize.He currently presents Open Book for BBC Radio 4 and a forthcoming Afropean podcast funded by a grant from the National Geographic Society. Home is the friendships we forge, the people we can count on, the people we know love us as we are, the people who keep loving and accepting us even when we mess up. This exhibition is infused with the Japanese architectural ideas of the ‘personal utopia’; a haven where one seeks respite from the difficulties of the outside world.

You’d been housing yourself all along and just needed to leave the confines of roots to truly feel at home.

The founder of the online journal and author of Afropean: Notes from Black Europe, Mr Pitts spent more than a decade documenting the black experience in Europe. When I got to Windhoek and it was chilly, I went to Luanda the next day, and I felt at home, not because I had a home there, but because it was warm, and I associate warmth with home. Not only that, but so that you can use your awareness and intuition to guide you back home into safety.

Running from Friday 18 November to the following Sunday 27 November 2022, Folkestone Book Festival will present a celebration of writing, reading, thinking and debate. In 2021, acclaimed poet Roger Robinson and award-winning author and photographer Johny Pitts drove around the UK coast to find out what it is like to be black in Britain today if you live outside the urban metropolitan centres.

Their collaboration became Home is Not a Place which has now arrived at The Photographers’ Gallery in Ramillies Street, Oxford Circus. The recipient of the inaugural Ampersand/ Photoworks Fellowship, his photography has been exhibited at Foam (Amsterdam), E-Werk (Freiburg) and the Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago). Following the coast clockwise, together they set out to document and respond to the many manifestations of Black British culture, and to present an alternative to official and media narratives.Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. Home is knowing we always have somewhere to run to, and we’ll be just fine, because home is within us. Which is why while sometimes it might take travelling the world to “find yourself”, you find that you’d been inside of yourself all along.
