Our Human Condition will explore the lives, thoughts and feelings of those in the UK living with a range of genetic conditions.

Award-winning photographer and academic Professor Paul Wenham-Clarke’s exhibition Our Human Condition, held at gallery@oxo at London’s Oxo Tower until Sunday 19 January, will delve into the human impact of genetic conditions through sibling relationships.

Professor Wenham-Clarke, who leads Arts University Bournemouth’s MA Commercial Photography programme, spent two years documenting the lives of families across the UK investigating how they cope with varying degrees of disability, investigating their struggles, goals and motivations.

The photographer, who has won numerous professional awards including an Association of Photographers Gold Award has featured on BBC2’s Culture Show, and has previously exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery, Victoria & Albert Museum, Somerset House and St Martin-in-the-Fields Gallery.

Professor Wenham-Clarke’s work is linked by a strong desire to communicate with the public on social and environmental issues, whether it is the loss of human (When Lives Collide) and animal life on our roads (Sacrifice the Birdsong), or the terrible plight of our homeless (Hard Times), or as in the case of his latest book Urban Gypsies – a community fighting to project its cultural identity.
