Photography from its inception has never been a single technology or process – always a slow-moving evolution of changes. 

Effected by art science and technology- each overlapping- but all effected by the DNA of photography- making marks with light.

With the event of digital creating the inkjet negative the hand craft of photography has never seen such exciting times.

When you take a picture on an iPhone it is for the moment – when you make a salt print, daguerreotype, platinum palladium, or carbon – it is forever.

The photograph once seen to represent perfection, an absolute representation – today there is a sense of freedom- to be creative and explore. The intrinsic beauty of the hand-crafted photography – maybe not total perfection- but a real insight of the hand of the artist. This is an Extraordinary Exhibition
