Thursday 30th March, 19:00 Free entry (booking required) BOOK HERE In this panel discussion co-chaired by Christiane Monarchi and Olga Smith, Dafna Talmor and guest artists Tom Lovelace and Corinne Silva will discuss their work in relation to a wide range of converging interests. Using their interdisciplinary practice as a starting point, these discussions will revolve around the politics of space and place, representations of landscape, documentary versus staged approaches, materiality and process, (the limitations of) photography and the expanded field of current fine art photographic practice. The event will be rounded off by a Q&A. More about the panel… Read More...

Thursday 9 March – Thursday 6 April LAUNCH PARTY Thursday 9 March, 18:30 TALK | DAFNA TALMOR IN CONVERSATION Thursday 30th March, 19:00 More info… Constructed Landscapes is an ongoing project that stems from Talmor’s personal archive of photographs initially shot as mere keepsakes across different locations that include Venezuela, Israel, the US and UK. Produced by collaging medium format colour negatives, the process relies on experimentation, involving several incisions and configurations before a right match is achieved. Transformed through the act of slicing and splicing, the resulting images are staged landscapes, a conflation combining the ‘real’ and the imaginary. Read More...

Tintypes, widely used in the 1860s and 1870s, are experiencing a bit of a revival. Known as Victorian Polaroids, tintypes are made by creating a single positive image on a thin sheet of metal that has been hand coated on the spot. The effect is both mesmerising and timeless.

Tintype artist Daniel Barter will be making the portraits and you are invited to watch the process Read More...

For my third Photofusion Members’ Project Review Katerina Kalogeraki sent selection of 10 photographs from her personal project, Family Portraits: Four Generations, focusing on families from countries “around Europe and one family from Singapore”. The work aims to look at family structures, cultural similarities and differences, and cross-cultural mixing over generations. The colour photographs are all environmental portraits taken in each of the family’s homes, indoors and outdoors. There is no easily discernible reason as to why two photographs have been shot outside the home and I wondered why. In looking at the images these two feel inconsistent with the Read More...

Last Saturday Paul Ellis ran another of our popular summer Location Lighting courses. Here’s his blog about it: Normally in August the sun shines and all is hunky dory but the weather forecast was for heavy rain followed by sunshine followed by heavy rain and so on. With our fingers crossed we went on location and found just sunshine, hurrah, we shouted but I wanted the group to make a moody dramatic image – the way the sky is shortly before heavy rain. To simulate this we first made an exposure for the sky and then ‘tweaked’ this exposure until Read More...

Paul Ellis followed up his popular Introduction to Studio Lighting course from Saturday 28 June with this blog.

Participants instantly learn that the camera’s shutter speed has no effect on the flash exposure. We set up a fairly low-key shot with a halo light placed directly behind our model Kaye and made sure that the exposure for the halo was two stops brighter than the light on her face (which is what we exposed for). The key to this shot’s success was Read More...

I have been developing since graduating from the BA in 2009 a project called requiem to a dying planet that Read More...

Now the important thing to remember is that it is the flash that freezes the water, and not the shutter speed (which is pretty much irrelevant). We blacked out the studio, eliminating all ambient light, positioned some poly-boards and one flash Read More...
