The Pioneers

Photography Exhibition by Garfield McKenzie

Glen’s Café, St Pauls Learning Centre - Grosvenor Road - Bristol

Oct 2020 - Feb 2021

This set of portraits make visible a generation of intrepid individuals, who left their homeland to make the journey to a new life. These elders paved the way for the generations of black British communities living in the UK today. Bristol-based artist and photographer Garfield McKenzie has documented these pioneers as a way to pay respect and show admiration, and continues to add to the body of work with new portraits.
