Julian Germain’s exhibition The Future is Ours opens at the Towner Gallery from October 10.
It explores the universal themes of school and childhood through film and photograph, showing portraits of school children from around the world. Germain spent eight years documenting 461 classrooms, photographing and canvassing the students. His work resulted in the publication Classroom Portraits 2004-2012 and an exhibition at Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam. This major exhibition at Towner will display 200 objects and will also show especially created portraits of four Eastbourne schools that Germain visited and photographed in July.
