Wendy Carrig Exhibition – Common People @ Greenham Common Tower
Dec 20 @ 10:30 am – 1:30 pm
Wendy Carrig Exhibition - Common People @ Greenham Common Tower | England | United Kingdom

An exhibition of photographs recording life at the Greenham Common Peace Camp during the 1980s
Exhibition: 9th December 2018 – 9th March 2019

Wendy Carrig was a photography student in the mid-1980s during a time of great social disquiet in Britain. Coal miners were striking against pit closures, and peace protestors gathered at Greenham Common to demonstrate against the installation of U.S. nuclear missiles on British soil.

Common People is an exhibition of photographs recording Carrig’s time spent with women protestors at Blue Gate camp, showing how domestic life continued around the campfire. The exhibition is accompanied by Campfire’s Burning an original essay by Dr. Rebecca Johnson describing her five years as a protestor at Greenham, together with song sheets from The Blue Gate Song Book, an original artefact from the days of protest, now lodged at the Imperial War Museum.

Wendy Carrig is an established freelance photographer known for her fashion and portrait photography. She has won Best In Category for portraiture at The Association of Photographers Awards, and has had work selected for both catalogue cover and poster campaign for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery London. She has recently been nominated as one of the Royal Photographic Society’s #HundredHeroines.

All the photography on show will be available to purchase, together with postcards and an exhibition poster.

  • Greenham Trust
  • Greenham Control Tower
