Photofusion, which is currently hosting this years' edition of its Annual Members Photography Show, in association with HotShoe Gallery, is holding a talk entitled Experimenting with Photography.
The talk will see photographers Jeremy Akerman, Judith Lyons, Chloe Sells and Eva Stenram discuss with exhibition curator and coordinator Carole Evans the future of the photographic practice, after a surge of experimental work has become a recent trend within the fine art photography market.
The photographers exhibited have all experimented with the medium in their practices - be it in using Photofusion's darkrooms to engage with alternative processes and camera-less photography or by digitally manipulating, altering and transforming images to create something less ubiquitous. Evans believes that the debate will be a lively and interesting take on what she referred to, when talking to the BJP, as the "quest for the unique image."
Evans also highlights the current trend for this type of work by adding: "It's interesting that the London Art Fair has this as its focus this year, with Sue Steward curating a show on what she terms the New Alchemists, including photographs which have been embroidered upon, or crafted in some other way."
The talk will take place on 17 January at 19:00.
