“Being awarded a place on the Futures programme represents a lot to me not simply for the various immediate benefits that it offers but also the organisation behind it. Belfast Exposed’s approach to photography, as a medium for reflection, information and cultural contribution, is something that I recognise and look forward to aligning myself with.” – Milo Lethorn

Milo Lethorn (b.1997) is a recent graduate of Coventry University and recipient of the 2019 Course Tutor Prize for Photography. Consciously unanchored to a particular practical style, his primary artistic interests lie in visualising the loose theme of construction through conceptual and/or investigative photographic projects. Aiming to create work that is as commentative as it is visually engaging and able to contribute to the wider critical conversations that inform it, recently this has involved attempting to picture the commercialisation of Higher Education and narrativise the growth of seemingly innocuous student accommodation models.
Whilst certainly being present alongside these interests in his latest work, moving forwards Milo would like to continue these documentary projects whilst further looking at the cultural underwriting of photography and post-truth visual communication
