We are pleased to announce ‘Chairs, Newport, Isle of Wight’, 2015, by photographer, Derek Man, will be exhibited at The Light House Media Centre 6-27 October 2017.
Part of a series exploring the Isle of Wight and its historical role as a site of reproduction of British cultural hegemony. Through exploring the myths surrounding an older kind of Britishness, I hope to find a sense of place in my adopted country as a response to my own displacement from Hong Kong, a former British colony.
Derek Man is a photographer based in London. Born and raised in Hong Kong, he moved to the UK alone at the age of 17 and became a naturalised citizen in 2016. His work explores the sense of cultural identity, especially in his native Hong Kong, and his adopted country.
