Modern Victorian photography
A group of British photographers and artists are mounting an exhibition of pictures created using Victorian cameras and processes such as the wet plate collodion method. Victorian lenses give the pictures a very particular feel which makes it odd to see cars, modern clothing and other anachronisms in a view which seems pulled straight out of history books. The photos will be exhibited at at the Arts Bank in Saltburn-By-The-Sea from 2 to 29 July. There will be a a free, hands-on demonstration and an evening talk by wet plate collodion expert John Brewer. See www.citiesandparks.com/Festival.html for more information.
