A solo exhibition that explores a variety of alternative photographic practices.

“The viewer is guided on an educational and inspiring trip which introduces new ways of picture-making influenced by the pioneers of photography”.

Artist talk and gallery tour Thursday 26th March 1pm.

A large body of unique artworks by Susie Baker, using a variety of alternative photographic processes. Some of these processes require the sun to expose the images like ‘Gum-oil’, ‘Cyanotype’ and ‘salt printing’, and these images are often layered with charcoal and paint. Other images are made by experimenting with ‘pin-hole’ and ‘box-brownie’ cameras.

Susie shows her use of unconventional darkroom practice through images made with materials such as ‘Liquid Photographic Emulsion’, ‘Lith film’ - transparencies turned into light-boxes - and hand manipulated Black & White prints. Images have been printed onto a variety of materials including watercolour paper, rocks, material and traditional B&W paper.

Visitors to the exhibition will also witness the natural phenomena that led to the invention of the camera, the Camera Obscura.
Information panels will explain the processes, bringing the viewer into the artist’s world. Free technical hand-outs will be available for those inspired to try the processes at home.
