Alumni: Danny Lowe Showcased at Saatchi Gallery
Danny Lowe is an industry known, respected photographer who studied with us at The Northern School of Art. Now London based, Danny is certainly making waves in the photography world as his series called ‘Brothers’ recently featured in the Saatchi Gallery, in association with The World Wide Tribe. The exhibition showcased Lowe’s individual portraits of refugees he met during a stay in the notorious ‘Jungle’ camp in Calais, Northern France.
Speaking to Metro Imagine, Lowe describes the subjects of his images as “The real-life superheroes who represent the victims of the world’s worst atrocities, who take every knock that life could bring, who continue to get kicked when they are down, yet they do so with a smile. With dignity, and with style.
“Meet the most eligible, most employable young men you have ever come across. Polite, charming, courageous and strong, these victims of war and persecution welcomed us into their makeshift shelters with open hearts and cups of tea.”
