On the second floor of a historic hop kiln in Badshot Lea, an exhibition is showcasing The Craft Of Photography throughout October.
Members of Kiln Photo, a digital and darkroom workshop equipped with a studio and exhibition space, have created an exhibition of power and diversity for Farnham Craft Month.
Kiln Photo provides a creative and inspiring environment for anyone passionate about photography, enabling people to develop their skills in a friendly environment with a community feel.
Members pursuing their interest in photography range from the enthusiastic beginner to those looking to expand their knowledge and try different styles. Tutoring is largely informal and allows for each person to follow their own particular interest at their own pace, whether in digital, darkroom, alternative or traditional techniques.
Kiln Photo founder Abbas Nazari said: “We are pleased to be part of craft month. Photography is a bit science, a bit art and a bit craft. We have some diverse work on show for craft month by our members.”
On display are a wide range of superb images showcasing the variety of subject matter and techniques within the membership of Kiln Photo.
This includes the cyanotypes of Jan Ramscar, darkroom analogue works addressing environmental issues by Corinne Whitehouse and Ed Brydon, sustainable darkroom work using chemicals developed from the natural world by Eileen White, the nature photography of Alex Potts, digitally-manipulated scanography by Jay Neal-Smith, and pictures by tutors Abbas Nazari, Dylan Haines and Seamus Flanagan.
Kiln Photo is in St George’s Road. The exhibition is open Monday, Wednesday and Saturday, 10am to 1pm, and Thursday, 6.30pm to 9.30pm.
