TDPG 16th Annual Exhibition
The 16th Annual Traditional Darkroom Printmakers Group Exhibition: 20th and 21st of August 2016 - 10.00-5.00 both days
Opening: Thursday 18th August at 8.00pm
Exhibition theme: Singular
Opening event: A Singular Experience: the analog world
"Singular" is an exhibition of traditional photographic prints, all made by hand in the darkroom or by using historical darkroom processes.
The exhibiting photographers will present their interpretation on the theme as well as photographs that explore their own individual interests. Styles as diverse as portraiture, landscape, nature, street photography and photojournalism will all be represented.
The prints will go beyond quality black and white images into historical processes such as gum bichromate, cyanotype and carbon printing. Viewers will be given an insight into the stunning detail that a true photographic print can render.
As an additional display, some photographers have chosen to compile prints in hand-crafted books, made using traditional bookbinding techniques. These photo albums will show what can be done to create a unique presentation of images, designed to turn individual photographs into a treasured keepsake.
