1 December, 2017 - 31 January, 2018

Antique process portraiture in the selfie age: contemporary collodion tintype photographic portraits by SAC Resident Artist Phillip England.

The long exposures required force the sitter to concentrate on their…

An exploration of the sublime, ephemeral beauty of clouds. Lie on your back and observe the shapes drifting through the sky.

There appears to me to be occasionally a level of tension occurring in some circumstances, while more often the circumstances seem to provide a simple tranquillity, of stillness, especially in the presence of water.…
