Josh Wright (b.1993, High Wycombe) and Guillaume Vandame (b. 1991, New York), collectively known as Wright & Vandame, live and work in London. Central to their practice, the artists explore the possibilities of collaboration and audience engagement through lively participatory art, performance, photography, video, sculpture and installation. In particular the artists are especially interested in interrogating questions of authorship and ownership, areas of expertise, and the role of artist.

Using battery powered packs (Elinchrom, Profoto, Phottix) we learn how to use flash in TTL and Manual modes and the differences between High Speed Sync and Hypersync. We then have practical sessions with a model where we put the theory into Read More...
