Miniclick photo talk
@The Old Market, Brighton.
Dafna Talmor, Lucia Pizzani and Esme Horne
An interesting talk describing the process and techniques of each of the three photographers.
I loved the talk by Lucia Pizzani, she talked about her influences from the Orchid destroyers of Kew to Beatrix Potters scientific papers on fungus studies – I am looking forward to seeing her work lucia pizzani
Dafna Talmor talked about her use of landscape negatives cut up and multilayered which she re-assembles to make new images playing with dimensions and perception. dafnatalmor.co.uk
Esme Horne used colour projections to make new shapes by creating different sized cones of paper and then playing about with them in the enlarger. www.esmehorne.com
Throughout photographic publications, degree shows and exhibitions we are seeing a growing leaning towards the abstract within contemporary photography. Hand in hand with this movement is a growing interest in vintage and analogue techniques, as if practitioners are looking backwards in order to explore new ground with the medium. Dafna Talmor, Lucia Pizzani and Esme Horne all in their own way explore the innovative and experimental techniques that are beginning to shape this field.
