As computer prints have grown ever more photographic the desire to produce labour intensive photographs by hand has grown more urgent. Digital photography has continued to convince practitioners of its potential and dependability however it is reassuring that there are still photographers willing to reformulate their working methods to include the historical as part of their contemporary practice.
The process of making these images not only influences the result in terms of aesthetic but has an effect on the theme or concept. This exhibition not only explores photographic methods but also more importantly scrutinises a collection of concerns and subjects reflecting the eclectic interests of the exhibiting photographers.
This work not only demonstrates the flexibility of photographic practice but also acknowledges the origins of the art.
