Analogue Photography Exhibition
This is an exhibition of analogue photography by practitioners who use a variety of historical, experimental and alternative processes to create unique and delicately beautiful imagery. Curated by photographer Anne Campbell from Gray’s School of Art, this is a rare opportunity to see a selection of these works as it were - ‘in the flesh’.
This exciting exhibition explores a variety of different analogue photographic processes including Cyanotypes, Bromoil, Lith and Wet Plate Collodion.
Most people only get the opportunity to see such works as digital reproductions, either in books or online, which cannot capture the depth and physicality that such images often possess so we are delighted to have the opportunity to host this diverse body of work in the North-east.
The work includes images from a variety of photographers with connections to the region either through work or study – including international documentary photographer Jon Nicholson, collodion wizard Alastair Cook, Kim Martins delicate cyanotypes and Anne Campbell’s Lith processes, with additional contributions from Alumni and students from Grays School of Art.
There will be opportunities to discuss the work and techniques used during the exhibition and to participate in a workshop about the bromoil process.
