Private View Friday 13 May 19-21.00

As part of Look 11: Liverpool International Photography Festival, the Control group will take over a warehouse building in the Baltic Triangle, to exhibit work produced under the mentorship of world-renowned publisher Dewi Lewis.

Photography, for the large part, controls our perceptions of the world. Our knowledge of global events and of cultural difference is widely prejudiced, positively or negatively, by the appearances we read from a photograph. A group of photographers take over an empty warehouse to explore aspects of control from how architecture can influence control through surveillance to regaining self control in the face of addictions.
