I enjoy my regular involvement with the universities of Newcastle, Northumbria and Sunderland, working with students around this time of year on their MA and Degree Shows or giving the occasional lecture on the technical aspects of digital imaging.
In recent weeks I have been working with Sophie Ingleby, making Archival Pigment Prints of a particularly intriguing and engaging series of photographs, Known/Unknown, for her MA in Photography.
As Sophie writes, “The images explore the relationship between painted portraits, their owners and the environments they share. Using selected works by the society painter Philip de László, the work considers the nature of collecting and remembering, and how class and wealth influence this.”
The series is not only work in progress for Sophie’s MA but is also showing at the Aberdeen Art Gallery from 31st July to 4th September.
The Archival Pigment Prints for the show and Sophie’s portfolio were made on Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308gsm with HP’s Vivera Pigment ink-set on the DJz3200.
