Snapshot to WeChat: A Migration of Identity at Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool, Waterfront 6 April — 17 June 2018 Entrance is free

Snapshot to WeChat at Open Eye Gallery presents three projects that use people’s photography to reflect on a country that has seen huge shifts in its attitudes towards globalisation, market economy and the place of the individual. The focus here is not on photographers, but on how we all use photography to express what matters to us and represent our experience through snapshots.
