1953 | Head On Photo Festival

Exhibition Dates:

19 April 2016 to 16 May 2016


Exhibition Description

1953 was a good year. It was the year that inspired the birth of these images. The 1953 Series was created using the Chemigram Process - it is where silver gelatin printing paper is coated with a resist, then processed using traditional darkroom chemistry. The resulting photograph is abstract, and the organic nature of these prints replicates the process of giving birth - the flaws and quirks that develop are much like that of a growing child - each have their own personality and individual characteristics. To be launched by Chris Reid - Blanco Negro at 1830, May 4th.
