Sun 26 November, 10.30am – 5.00pm
Come and explore the processes we use to frame people and capture their portrait.
Portraiture is a fascinating subject matter, and capturing a person and framing their face is more than just a set of material processes. A portrait which engages us in the sitters ‘moment of being’, draws out emotion and empathy, the face provides a story to be read.
Drop by and tell your story to photographer and artist in residency Jo Gane as she uses her 130 year old restored large-scale Victorian mahogany camera to capture sitters and ask her about the process.
Human Library will also be taking place on this day. Sessions will provide opportunities to engage with and ‘unjudge’ groups who are often misrepresented. Offering an alternative perspectives of their human experience, through intimate conversations. Find out more about this event.
