The New Photographic Chemistry exhibition was successfully installed last week at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield. Many thanks to everyone at the gallery for their support, and to those who attended the PV on Friday 30th Sept and the special Student Event on Saturday 1st October. Feedback has been very positive, which is really pleasing. More installation shots below:
I'm delighted to say that New Photographic Chemistry will be exhibited at Bank Street Arts gallery in Sheffield, on Friday 30th September 2016 and Saturday 1st October 2016; gallery open 11am to 4pm.
Following the successful return of the project to the space from which it originated, this short video gives more background about the project, the process, and its outcomes so far. The video is also launched in the context of a forthcoming exhibition of the work in Sheffield - more information to follow.
The exhibition opened today at Daisy Lane Books, Holmfirth, and continues until Sunday 17th July. This is the first public exposure of the project that has been ongoing for around two years; and which began with the purchase of a second hand book in this shop. Further installation shots below.
My 'New Photographic Chemistry' work will get its first airing in a 'pop-up' style exhibition at Daisy Lane Books, Holmfirth, 1st-17th July 2016. It's an especially appropriate continuation of the development of the project because it was at this bookshop, in April 2014, that I bought the 'Textbook of Photographic Chemistry' (DHO John and GTJ Field, 1963, Chapman & Hall, London) that inspired the project. Full-circle, back to where it started, there is a completeness to it. Many thanks to proprieter, Barry Townsend-Cardew for agreeing to let me show the work on his premises.
