BEYOND THE BINARY
Geoff Brokate & Kaye Martindale
The collection of images presented in Beyond the Binary reflects upon contemporary family structures within the UK. This exhibition invites us to consider how the evolving role of gender and sexuality within our culture is reconfiguring our ideas of how traditional families look.
The individuals that we encounter in this series of photographs call on us to examine what constitutes a family and expand our understanding of the ties that bind us together. Whilst these households may challenge our preconceptions, they also reveal the constellations of frustration, love, mundanity and quirkiness that are common to all families.
