Last night we hosted our annual PechaKucha SALON/16 evening in conjunction with our current members show SALON/16. We invited 7 of the participating photographers to speak in more depth about their projects before a Q and A session with the audience. It’s safe to say we were truly spoilt! Each photographer brought something different to the table and sparked dynamic conversation between everyone. Below is the list of the photographers that spoke, click on their names to find out more about them… Celine Marchbank David Sampson Kim Thornton Susanne Hukuba Katie Bret-Day Mark Aitken Jeanine Woollard 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. On February 11, from 10:30-5:30, we will be setting up a studio in our gallery space for a tintype portrait session. We have 10 portrait sessions available. The cost is £140 for a session. Tintype artist Daniel Barter will be making the portraits and you are invited to watch the process Read More...

A one-day course for 8 – 18 year olds. To the uninitiated, zines aren’t quite magazines but they are much more than a leaflet. They started out life as fanzines and have taken on their own unique position in the publishing market. You can now pick up zines in galleries, bookshops, record stores, bars and cafes. Making a zine is a totally personal experience, you can pick your theme and decide your own style; children and young people love it. Read More...

For this project review Mark Aitken sent me a selection of 12 environmental portraits from his personal project in process, Sanctum Ephemeral. The word sanctum refers to a safe private place, a refuge, and in each of the photographs the subject is positioned in various poses—standing up, sitting on a chair or floor, lounging, lying on and getting out of bed. This creates a dynamic in which the relationship between the subject and the space of the room is highlighted through the different poses to suggest the sitters’ connection to the story of the room. However, the use of the Read More...
