OPEN18 Participate – We are all Connected
Les Monaghan We are all connected
Les Monaghan was selected from open call to lead the Brighton Photo Fringe OPEN18 Participate project. He proposed a project that shows the human and personal connections that spread out from one homeless man on a Brighton street. Ostensibly he would appear to be outside society but Monaghan believes through photographs and texts that he can show how close, interlinked and similar we are. He wants to change how people experiencing homelessness are seen, how we – wherever we may appear in the chain of relationships with them – see ourselves, and how we are only a few steps from each other.
Over the course of the festival Les will be posting new photographs and stories on our Outdoor Hub next to the i360, as he tracks new connections right across the city.
