Photography collective Photodebut came up with a novel way to get their latest exhibition *ahem* on the road. Their solution was to acquire a 40-tonne truck and display a range of photography on lightboxes stashed within the hold. With the tarpaulin pulled to one side, the empty truck became a huge display space that was also (rather conveniently) fully portable, as the show travelled to three sites in London last week.
Photodebut’s travelling exhibition – Stop Moving – came to a halt in Hoxton Square, Elephant and Castle and Brick Lane and was an attempt, say the debuters, at bringing a sense of stillness and reflection into some of the captital’s busiest areas.
Participating photographers included Esther Teichmann, Richard Mosse, Emer O’Brien, Patricia Niven, Aaron Schuman, Ralf Obergfell, Afshin Dehkordi, Jan Von Holleben, Jan Ebelling, Ben Roberts, Tom Brown, Alys Tomlinson, and Stephen Ledger-Lomas.

Photodebut is an non-profit organisation which supports, promotes and connects ambitious photographers. Founders Jan von Holleben (former director, YPU-UK), Esther Teichmann (RCA and Rankin Photography) and Andy Porter (SIAD graduate) hope to encourage the sharing of ideas, imagery, and information amongst photographers and to cultivate a positive and powerful photographic community.
