Will you tell my story? Irish Travellers' tales

From the series Irish Travellers by Heather Buckley Image copyright Heather Buckley

Photographer Heather Buckley has been documenting the lives of Irish Travellers around Limerick for the past two years, creating beautiful salt prints from some of the images.

The salt prints are on show at the Brighton Photo Fringe alongside large graphic images that are used as tiles on the walls. This is accompanied by audio interviews with the Irish Travellers, allowing the viewer to immerse themselves in the experience.

"'Will you tell my story?' they say to me, and I've tried in my own way," says Buckley.

Buckley says the Irish Travellers are isolated from society, both physically and culturally, and have in them a feeling of being forgotten.

"The elders remember freedom as children of travelling workers," she writes. "Their grandchildren live behind tall concrete walls, screened from the world, on ill designed sites."

Do the clothes we wear define us?

New work by Simon Bray and Tristan Poyser explores the way in which our clothes shape us, that outer shell we use to accentuate or sometimes hide who we are.

The work, entitled Duality, is formed of diptychs, with each person posed in their own clothing and their workwear. The aim is to see how a viewer responds to the uniform and how it shapes their perception of that person - how we prejudge based on a uniform or a certain look and style.

Crossing Paths: Five years, 150 towns, 1,500 British portraits

Niall McDiarmid has been photographing the people of Britain for five years now, though with the recent Brexit vote his work seems to have been given an extra edge. The work is far from political, but it's a real snapshot of a nation, with beautiful aesthetics thrown in. Here, McDiarmid speaks about the work.

The project began in early 2011, with a view to simply photographing interesting people I met on the street. After a couple of months, however, I started to focus on building a body of portraits that would be a celebration of British diversity, a social document of modern Britain.

I have long been an admirer of the sensitive work by Sarah Amy Fishlock, and her latest series is no exception. Beloved Curve is an intensely personal piece, revolving around the death of her father, Michael, more than 10 years ago, when she was 18. Here, Sarah speaks about the pictures.

My father's absence has often felt like a protracted one-sided conversation.
