I’ve been thinking about this process for a while as it seemed more straightforward than silver-based development at home and possibly I would be able to use the loft as an area to process the chemicals and the paper as it doesn’t need the absolutes of darkness that silver-based photography requires.

The other factor is that all it needs is tap water to fix the process once the paper has been exposed to sunlight, rather than the different trays of chemicals and fixes of traditional silver-based photography.

So I’m going to be ordering some chemicals from Silverprint once the loft has been cleared and sorted šŸ™‚

*update* we now have a shed not a loft, but it still needs cleaned out though I do have some chemicals and have dabbled further

Edgelands

'Say No'

‘Say No’

First coined by Marion Shoard, the term edgelands refers to those in-between spaces created by urbanisation where space for nature still persists alongside cities, towns, shopping centres, motorways, canals, and so on. These zones sit between urban and rural areas, and they also sit uneasily between the two categories of urban and rural, often defying an easy definition.

Working in my usual areas of liminal spaces at the edge of towns this seemed like a natural extension of other projects that I’m working on, again this is an image dump and I will be working on these images to choose which I want to use to represent this idea, book and exhibition.
