Mike Ware – A Retrospective – May to August 2024

Runs from 8th May 2024 to 11th August 2024

A perfect opportunity to view some of Mike’s work before it travels back to the UK. 

There are very few folk in the world that have shared information on the art craft and science of photography to the extent that Mike has. 

Dr Mike Ware is an accomplished British photographer and with a doctorate in chemistry from Oxford . Mike has undertaken fundamental studies in historic photographic processes and preservation of photographs working with The National Science and Media Museum Bradford and The Victoria and Albert Museum London, and The National Gallery of Art, Washington DC. Mike brings real science to bear on alternative processes. He has written three books that are in-depth modern classics of alternative photographic processes along with numerous papers. 

Mike Ware’s web site is a trove of information on the iron-based alternative photographic processes known as siderotypes. 

Sadly Mike will not be here for the show – but it is important for those with an interest in the craft of photography to see this work first hand.
