Tales: Photography by Sonya Hurtado 
Until 8 JanuaryFREE
Hackney based photographer, Sonya Hurtado, explores the imaginary world of childhood. Set in the context of fairy tales and children’s stories, her images are conceived almost like paintings, full of colour and vibrancy. With inspiration from surrealism, film and much more, the manipulation of shadow, light and colour creates a playful and at times almost sinister atmosphere. Take FREE a Digital Photo Collage workshop with the artist 10 December.
