Sixteen at The Horsfall, Ancoats 16 February — 8 March 2019 Entrance is free

Presented at The HorsfallSixteen is an ambitious project conceived of by photographer Craig Easton following his engagement with 16-year-olds at the time of the Scottish Referendum. He has now invited 16 of the UK’s foremost documentary portrait photographers to collaborate with young people to make a visual vox pop on what it means to be 16 now. At this time of increasing national and international anxiety, these young people are shifting from adolescence to become the adults who will live in a politically reshaped country.

Sixteen sets out on a nationwide tour this February, launching also at Manchester at HOME, Manchester Central Library and New Adelphi Exhibition Gallery & Atrium where curators will present a selection of works from the overall project based on each venue’s location and social/thematic concerns.
