About Alan Wilkinson

Alan J. Wilkinson is a Manchester born photographer, educator and activist who began life as the son of a plumber which meant that the bathroom was always changing. This could be a metaphor for the many years of family struggles that lay ahead. To escape these troubles, Wilkinson used the medium of photography to focus his thoughts. For the succeeding thirty years, Wilkinson’s practice has been an autobiographical exploration of his own histories and the people and places he has surrounded himself with.

His current work Kingdom stems from his relationship with his father, and explores male bonding and relationships within the stereotypically hypermasculine world of “chopper riders”.

Anthropology (MFA Graduate Degree Show)

"The works presented are universally human and deeply personal navigations of current climates and a response to exactly this moment in time.  The exhibition sits with the process of grief and walks along the borders of small towns and fallen cities. Artists reckon with the aftermath of abuse and make sense of fluctuating architecture and the human effort to heal our natural environment.  Perception is questioned and subverted to understand home, gender, and community. The work is steadfastly connected in rumination of our time and contemporary in the truest sense of the word."
