Event description

Description

You are invited to join photographer Stan Dickinson at the private view of New Photographic Chemistry.

Two years ago in a second-hand bookshop in Holmfirth, Stan found an old copy of A Textbook of Photographic Chemistry, published in 1963. The book inspired a creative process involving the appropriation, re-presentation, deconstruction and eventual destruction of the original textbook - a form of metaphorical exploration. Complex, seductive and thought-provoking, the resulting images are the subject of New Photographic Chemistry.  
 
New Photographic Chemistry combines studio-based digital photography with layers of manipulation, physical actions (cutting, tearing, folding, constructing, deconstructing and even burning), printing (including fabrics), re-photographing and often, further digital manipulation and mark-making. Everything, even the most complex, began in the book.

Stan talks about creating New Photographic Chemistry https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmC9hBrSgaA

New Photographic Chemistry is open to the public on Friday 30 September and Saturday 1 October, 11am - 4pm.
