New on the blog -.we explore the photography of the MAP6 collective and their latest work, The Milton Keynes Project.

"In 2017, having previously worked on The Moscow Project, The Home Project and The Lithuanian Project, the collective have turned their shared attention to Milton Keynes, to coincide with the city's 50th birthday and in order to capture its geography, people, structure and architecture."

The Collective Grows

November 23, 2015 in News

New Members

MAP6 are proud to welcome Barry Falk, Jonty Tacon and Toby Coulson as the newest members of the MAP6 photography collective. MAP6 was formed in late 2011 and after lots of discussion about our exciting and ambitious journey ahead, we felt it was time to add to our membership and are thrilled to have found three extremely talented photographers to join the collective. 

Focusing on the peripheral views of the city, Barry portrays such spaces with a stillness and beauty. ‘Barry Falk’s photographs effectively convey the edginess and grubbiness and visual intrigue of ordinary spaces. He demonstrates how seeming emptiness can be evocative, and can have character and feeling.’ – Louise Marlborough: Brighton Fringe Open Text 2011
BARRY FALK


Jonty’s passion for cycling has lead him high into the mountains of Europe tracing the routes of the most iconic of professional cycling events. Equally fascinating has been his long term project documenting the local race scene in and around Brighton, UK – where the passion or the organisers, officials, volunteers and cyclists show a true nature of sport, hardship, joy and pain.
JONTY TACON


“I’m drawn to the unexpected, to seeing new places and meeting new people, this is what interests me about personal projects.” Toby, twice shortlisted for the Taylor Wessing Portrait prize, creates stunning portraits that seem to be able to communicate with the viewer in subtle and direct ways, suspended in a state of grace. 
TOBY COULSON

Toby, Barry, Jonty – welcome to MAP6!
