At the end of 2019 we curated EVERYDAY DELIGHT, an exhibition all about looking for the joy in the small things, finding the magic in what might at first appear mundane and discovering the beauty in the everyday.
That exhibition at Freespace Project carried us through the winter into 2020 and when the first Covid-19 lockdown came into place that spring, we brought photographers together for a two-part online exhibition called EVERYDAY DELIGHT (Stay at Home Edition). Then in the summer of 2020 we popped up in dozens of locations across the UK with EVERYDAY DELIGHT (Windows Edition) to complete the trilogy.
And now in 2022, because we need it, we’re bringing the theme of EVERYDAY DELIGHT back in the form of a beautiful Shutter Hub Editions publication.
There is beauty in the everyday, it’s there, but you might not always be able to see it.
EVERYDAY DELIGHT might be something to be enjoyed between the rise and set of the sun, it’s a prompt to look for joy, to appreciate the little things – flowers growing through cracked pavements, cake crumbs on a plate, rippled shadows, low sun through high trees, accidental colour schemes in the street, raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens… hang on!
In a world where we seem to have more to worry about every day it’s not always easy to find the positive view. EVERYDAY DELIGHT and the collation of 100 images will offer viewers something to think about and to focus on temporarily, and perhaps to come away seeing things differently.
