British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Cristina Nuñez is presenting a series of experimental online workshops by The Real Photography Company in Bristol, investigating alternative photography processes and techniques. The four one-month workshops will be run in the SPEX platform from April to July. You can enrol on one workshop or two, three or perhaps all of them for a special price.

The Real Photography Company are Justin Quinnell, Ruth Jacobs, Wendy Leocque, Sophie Sherwood. Based in Bristol UK, they are expert teachers in black and white photography and alternative darkroom processes. During the pandemic, with their darkrooms closed, they developed accessible photographic techniques and processes enabling people in lockdown to make images based on the principles of photography, but without the usual camera equipment, darkroom facilities or chemistry. In this series of workshops, the RPC invites you to participate in a creative exploration of the world around you, to make images from plants, everyday kitchen ingredients, the action of the sun on light sensitive materials, the passage of time and the turning of the Earth in space.

The one-month Workshops are:

  • April: Pinhole Photography, Solargraphy and Room Obscura Projections
  • May: Anthotypes and Chlorophyll Printing
  • June: Lumens and Cyanotype Printing
  • July: Kitchen Chemigrams

This looks glorious for the innovatory 'photography' methods to be engaged with that ‘Covid-19 has malevolently thrown light on’. Calls to mind in my street during benevolent Autumn a small Acer tree dropping its maple-shaped leaves; which after rain wetting and lying on the pavement for a while sodden, and with frequent footfall treading and flattening decaying maple leaves into hard concrete surfaces - forming in due course dark overlapping imprints around the tree’s overhanging area. Dusky-black, indigo and umber coloured leaf prints are revealed when any remnant of leaves are dissolved and washed away or brushed-up by the municipality. Staining from microfungus mould and tannins for a time leaves indelible dyed-in leaf shadows randomly speckling the pavement - appearing as though a graffiti artist had stencilled their autumnal tag.
