Exhibitions

Exhibitions and presentations are important venues for my work. These opportunities allow some of the realities of those that I have had the privilege to interact with, learn about and photograph to be shown and exposed.

Just another human being...

07-03-2017 to 26-03-2017(CLOSED)

Museum of Cambridge

Just another human being... an exhibition of work captured by author and photographer, Mary Humphrey, explores the emotional, physical and social complexities that trans-people experience. Through representing each person in words and images Mary offers a glimpse into the trans-community.

Mary will be giving a 'Capturing Cambridge: Inside Stories' talk to accompany this exhibition - Just another human being...

The London Salon of Photography, 105th Annual Exhibition 2016

02-07-2016 to 01-09-2016(CLOSED)

Smethwick Photographic Society and Edinburgh Photographic Society

I was particularly pleased that a portrait of Gypsy Grandma Ettiie had been accepted for the London Salon Exhibition 2016. ‘The aim of the London Salon is to exhibit only that class of photographic work which is distinct evidence of artistic feeling and execution’. I was pleased that the judges felt that Gypsy Grandma Ettie fulfilled these criteria. The London Salon Exhibition 2016 remained in Birmingham during the early part of the summer before it travelled to Edinburgh

Ritual Reconstructed Showcase

24-11-2015 to 25-11-2015(CLOSED)

JW3 (Jewish Community Centre, London)

Throughout the Ritual Reconstructed project I had the privilege of being engaged as the Project Photographer. Ritual Reconstructed examined how being LGBTQI influenced, shaped or changed Jewish faith rituals and how Jewish people influenced LGBTQI rituals. On 24th November 2015 the ‘ Bricolage’ Symposium’ took place at “JW3” (Jewish Community Centre in London). Ritual Reconstructed demonstrated how Jewish people who identify as LGBTQI, engage in religious and community life.

A selection of photographs taken during ritual events, depicting engagement and ritual objects, were exhibited at this showcase.

The Ritual Reconstructed/ Connected Communities project was funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council and led by Professor Margaret Greenfields. The project was collaboration between Buckinghamshire New University, Liberal Judaism, University of Portsmouth and The Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations at Coventry University with support from community partners JW3 who hosted the event.

I was so fortunate in being invited to present a solo exhibition Because... at ArtCell in Cambridge. Putting together the different bodies of work has provided a powerful insight and a clear vision of my work, which focuses on the individuals with whom I have had the good fortune to photograph.

Elsewhere

23-07-2014 to 06-08-2014(CLOSED)

Michaelhouse Centre, Trinity Street, City Centre, Cambridge

There are many ways of reaching Elsewhere. We can travel, and in the process open ourselves to transformation by the new experiences that we encounter along the way. Or, we can stay in one place, but be moved by similarly transformative encounters with images and art objects, which may compel us to undertake metaphorical journeys that can have the potential to be both conceptual and affective. The three artists exhibiting their work in Elsewhere all share a passion for travelling and each, in their own ways, produce works which move beyond simple definitions of travel, exploring the multi-variant experience of the journey.
