Ffocws Online Artist Talk #01

Alice Forde, Emma Spreadborough, Megan Morgan

We warmly invite you to join us for a series of online talks with the ten artists selected for Ffocws 2023.

Ffocws is part of Ffotogallery’s mission to support emerging and early career artists in Wales who challenge the process, medium and application of photography. For this year’s selection we surveyed recent graduates across the country as well as aspiring artists through an open call in collaboration with Cardiff MADE (Higgins Initiative in Ffocws).

For this first artist talk we will be joined by Alice Forde, Emma Spreadborough and Megan Morgan. Find out more about the artists below, and book your ticket via Eventbrite here.

The event is taking place online via Zoom. If you have any access requirements, please email [email protected] prior to the event, and we will do our best to provide support.

About Artists

Portrait of Alice Forde

Alice Forde

Ambiguity is a focus in my creative vision. I find a playfulness in making my photography a question and not a statement. Fashion is the catalyst which allows me to do this whilst exploring culture, human relations and their behaviour in my vibrant and visually experimental photographic work. Having just graduated from BA Photography at the University of South Wales I look forward to gaining more experience in editorial fashion photography particularly focusing on publications and creating physical bodies of work.
