Art Show: Julian Germain – The Future is Ours, Classroom Portraits 2004-2015 ** 10 Oct 2015 – 10 Jan 2016 ** Towner, Eastbourne

Towner is delighted to present the UK Premiere of British photographer and artist Julian Germain’s exhibition, The Future is Ours.The Future is Ours explores the universal themes of school and childhood through film and photograph, showing portraits of school children from 19 countries around the world. Germain spent 8 years documenting 461 school classrooms throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, South East Asia, Middle East and South America.

Using his own photography technique, he captured the students in the natural environment of their classrooms and also canvassed some of the pupils about their lives. His work resulted in the publication Classroom Portraits 2004-2012 and an exhibition at Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam.

This major exhibition at Towner will display 200 objects including framed photographs, films, prints, Polaroids, and customised books. The exhibition will also show especially created portraits of four Eastbourne schools that Germain visited and photographed in July.
