Warwickshire Open Studios 2018

Exhibition

For 2 weeks from the 16th June 2018 I shall be hosting an open-house exhibition of black & white, handmade photographic prints as part of the Warwickshire Open Studios and Coventry Arts Trail.

Showing prints from my latest project 'Allora, vediamo' and other landscape and documentary photography, handmade on silver gelatin paper. You will be able to look around the darkroom and be shown the traditional, film photography techniques used to create the prints.

For those who wish see the process in full, I will be running more comprehensive, free workshops and demonstrations that can be booked here.

Prints in a variety of sizes, framed and unframed, zines and postcards will be available to purchase at special offer prices and commisions and can discussed.
I look forward to seeing you in June,

Workshop demonstrations

For Warwickshire Open Studios 2018 I am hosting FREE, 1 hour workshops on the craft of film photography. These will open to everyone who wishes to learn more about the film process and there will be an opportunity to even create your own print. Due to space restrictions these must be pre-booked and will run in the evenings.
There will be time at the end of each session to also browse the exhibtion.
The exhibition/darkroom is located in Binley Woods, CV3.
Parking, light refreshments and toilets will be available.

Film and Format

We shall start by looking at the different film formats from 35mm to 8x10 large format, colour (negatives and slide), black&white and a little bit of history.

Developing

Going from exposed film to a useable negative, techniques used for home development.

Enlarging

Most printed images these days are processed on a computer and printed using inkjet printers. Traditional methods involve enlarging the negative by passing light through it and onto light sensitive paper.

Mounting & Framing

Once the photogrpah has been produced it then needs to be displayed using the most appropriate and archivable method.


Please note : These demonstrations will take place in my darkroom and parts will be conducted under 'safelight' (subdued red-light)
If you are unable to attend at the allocated times, tours can still be given during regular opening hours.
