‘The River Runs Through’ is a photographic trail in Kearsney exploring images of streams and lakes within the park landscape. Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens are the most popular, historic parks in Dover which are located 2.5 miles north west of Dover town centre in the Alkham Valley, part of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens provides many opportunities to take really beautiful photographs. Why not download the Kearsney Parks photography trail and capture what you see on the way? The trail has been developed by photographer/artist Mike Tedder. He suggests a route to follow and has given lots of tips for photos that you might like to photograph. https://www.kearsneyparks.co.uk/Resources/Photography.aspx

La mélancolie cyanotypes

Recent sunshine has aided the development of some new image making using cyanotype treated cotton fabric with its rich deep ultramarine hues. The photograms collectively connect with a sense of loss, of passing and quiet melancholy that can be glimpsed lying just under the surface of contemporary experience. This is not so much about sorrowful songs but more the realisation of the existence of a new reality: the ‘new normal’. Ideas and images develop against the backdrop of a contemplative blues tinted landscape.

We Fade – cyanotype on cotton fabric: an inevitable metamorphosis from youth to decay, played by evergreen magnolia leaves.
Les Vagues – cyanotype on cotton fabric: the waves continuously roll in on a tide. They have done so long before we arrived, rolling constantly throughout life, and will continue long after we depart.
Les fleurs du silence – cyanotype on cotton fabric: A lone stem in death still holds on to the memory of tiny flowers against a backdrop of bare inanimate stems that fade into the silent shadows.

Worldwide Pinhole Day 2020

Garden of Earthly Delights: a celebration of World Pinhole Day within the back-garden. During the Covid-19 lock-down restrictions, where staying at home had become the new ‘normal’, WWPD2020 presented an opportunity to explore the garden through a series of pinhole lens-less photos. My camera for the day was a beautifully retro ‘Pinhole 100’ plastic box camera manufactured by Polaroid, shooting a mixture of expired stock peel-apart instant type-100 film that is sadly no longer manufactured by Polaroid or Fuji. The garden becomes a magical realm in which to lose oneself and exposures of between 10 to 40 seconds allow for the movement of foliage in the wind to register upon the film, creating visual traces of the ethereal nature of this private space.

Tuesday 5th February – Sunday 24th March
SILVER is an exhibition celebrating traditional and alternative photographic techniques. Featured images have been selected from a public open call, and will exhibit works from people of all ages, abilities, experience & education. I am looking forward to showing some cyanotypes on fabric during this exhibition.

​A percentage of the exhibited work and small prints will be for sale allowing you to support the artists, or charity if they choose to pass on their sales. 100% of submission fees will be donated to MS Society. There will also be a donations box for anyone wishing to further support the work of the MS Society.
