We will be providing refreshments, and an opportunity to chat about alternative photography processes.
There will be talks from;
Matt will be coming to talk about his project The Photocopy club, an innovative exhibitions project based in Brighton, London and Hong Kong.
The Photocopy Club recently exhibited in the Jerwood Space, and are now resident at Doomed Gallery Dalston.
The Photocopy Club exhibit works made entirely with photocopiers, with the aim of making photography and printed work more accessible to the public.
Tina Rowe, a regular at Double Negative Darkroom, has been creating some interesting work with her own photographic emulsion recipes as well as her wide angle pinhole camera experiments.
David Leister is an established filmmaker who has been an active member of the film community in London since 1983 and regularly assists other artists with the presentation of their film work with his celebrated 16mm looping system. He has over a dozen films in distribution with LUX that are regularly included in experimental film programmes and festivals both in the UK and in Europe. He has an extensive 16mm archive of discarded educational and information films from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, which formed the basis for The Kino Club, his platform for combining improvised film and music in an informal cabaret-club setting, with David Leister as host and projectionist.
Leister will be talking and screening films at this months meeting.
