B ...the best! Blending cutting edge digital photographic technology with traditional ‘wet’ darkroom processes B is redefining the possibilities of the B&W photographic print. The B collective are an eclectic group whose creative energies are as challenging as they are engaging.
I've been a bit quiet of late, trying to juggle my lecturing duties at the college with preparing a photo workshop in Timor-Leste, organising a trip to Myanmar and trying to complete a series I've been working on for a while.
Meanwhile, one of my darkroom classes at the college have been quietly preparing an exhibition of their work that they undertook this semester. Not something that they were required to do but they're an enthusiastic, passionate bunch who jumped at the opportunity when I mentioned that the gallery space may be free towards the end of the teaching semester.
There's been a few trials and tribulations along the way, not the least of which occurred a little over a fortnight from the opening when they lost their original venue because construction work next door undermined the foundations of part of the building housing the gallery space. Thankfully the college came to the rescue and provided an alternative space, but it was touch and go for a while. But they got there in the end. It looks great and they should be proud of what they achieved. Well done guys!
