I visited The Truman Brewery today in Brick Lane to see the photography degree shows from different Art colleges around the UK. I took some photos as I was wandering around.
I really liked this camera obscura by Sean Currey, capturing one of the windows of the exhibition space.
A really beautiful photographic installation, by Bethany SmithEmma Hirst was describing to me how she uses the sun and natural fixers to create her photograms. I recognised the cyanotype process, but the other ones were new to me, such as using onions.This was one of her favourites in the show.
These rain pictures I really liked. They are by Gareth Johnson. He was initially inspired by rain used in films such as Akira Kurosawa, Ingmar Bergman and Andrei Tarkovsky and what they could represent or symbolise across different times and cultures. Jonson links rain to the sublime, but not with awe, but “a sense of wonder- albeit one that may be tinged with doubt and ambivalence.”
These ones look like blank photos, but they are really subtle traces of what looks like folds in paper.
Images from the M25, the road to nowhere.
