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. 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...

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...
