Alternative Camera Club with David Oates

Manchester-based photo artist David Oates began work as a photographer, curator, and writer after obtaining his PhD in 2002. David uses contemporary subjects that are pertinent to a capitalistic society, such as the rising Chinese economy, and developments in space exploration, to give an artistic edge to documentarian appeal.

Since 2009 David has made an ongoing series of works in collaboration with artist Mishka Henner, under the collective name BlackLab, an organisation designed to create works in which images interact with sound, music and texts through the creation of short films and montages. In addition to the production of new work, BlackLab attempt to revivify the presentation of images by hosting events that combine performance, projections and propaganda.

In October 2011,  BlackLab curated After Hours at Manchester’s Whitworth Art Gallery, showcasing their own and others work around the theme Dark Matters.
