Serendipity’ is a series of photographic portraits of Cobbett Road Library’s users focusing on the younger generation. This particular library, like many other public institutions, faced closure in March 2016, but was saved by local charitable organisations. These photographic portraits are concerned with issues surrounding local identity and social history, investigating the meaning of community and how it is valued in today’s society.
Nina Sverdvik is an artist and Senior Lecturer in Photography at Southampton Solent University. Her work has been exhibited widely, notably in the National Portrait Gallery London in the John Kobal and Schweppes Portrait Prize.
