Home is Not a Place’ is a collaborative work uniting photography, poetry and select prose; this collection potently capturing a psychogeography of Black Britain—from Glasgow to Margate, comprised of both positive and negative exposures—with its aperture fully open to the synergy and synchronicity of Black joy.

They encountered Black British culture overlooked in official narratives, alongside the history of Empire and transatlantic slavery, to which every Briton is tethered. When I got to Windhoek and it was chilly, I went to Luanda the next day, and I felt at home, not because I had a home there, but because it was warm, and I associate warmth with home.In the back part of the gallery, Pitts presents a room suggestive of a private space, quiet and contemplative. The stories captured in the film and the book echo across centuries of the black experience, transforming and illuminating the history of Britain.

S. Eliot Prize 2019, The RSL Ondaatje Prize 2020 and is a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. Listen to the two artists talk about how the book came to be, what they found out about themselves – and the country they live in – in this moody audio-visual version of Home Is Not A Place. These objects include a framed model, made by Pitts’ cousin Dean Rogan, titled ‘If Home was a Place: Johny Pitts’ childhood home’. The structures we often find ourselves in when we are “at home” aren’t what make home home, it’s how we feel when we are there that make it so.Sometimes home is good food and good company, which could be a cob of maize and the company of ourselves.

His debut photographic exhibition will place his work alongside that of Vivian Meier and Alec Soth at Foam Amsterdam this September.

Leaving London, they followed the River Thames east towards Tilbury, where the Empire Windrush docked in 1948. A journey around the UK coast with a poet and a photographer has produced a beautiful and in depth meditation on Black Britishness.
