Feedback form

I plan to encourage feedback at the exhibitions I am holding for my Harena Now project. This project for me has much more longevity than the end of my MA, and I hope it will continue to develop and grow. To assist with this, hearing people's comments about the work and the shows will add … Continue reading Feedback form

Warning notice

I decided my warning notice in my previous blog post was perhaps a little strongly worded: https://josiepurcellphotographyma.wordpress.com/2018/06/17/final-elements-of-first-show/ I have now updated this (and corrected a spelling error) as below: This is more about making sure young children are not left alone in the cafe space and potentially reach for the small silver magnets and put them … Continue reading Warning notice

New pieces – new paper

Ilford kindly donated four boxes of expired paper a few years ago. Two are fibre-based and two are resin coated (see Fig. 1). For the majority of Harena Now I have used the Warm Tone Semi-Matt paper as it seems to create the most vivid blues, yellows and purples when auto-toned in Photoshop. I recently … Continue reading New pieces – new paper

Final elements of first show

With the first show for Harena Now taking place from June 22, I have been putting together a few final touches - paperwork mostly. The space I have is one wall that measures 6m x 2.5m (18ft x 7.5ft). The work will hung unframed with small magnets. I will hang it as high up as … Continue reading Final elements of first show

Photomonitor

I previously wrote about Photomonitor and its founding editor, Christiane Monarchi - https://josiepurcellphotographyma.wordpress.com/2018/04/20/christiane-monarchi/. Since then I contacted Christiane to ask her to take a look at my Harena Now project and provide feedback. I'm honoured to say that she has offered me the opportunity of an interview in the comings weeks. I truly hope this will … Continue reading Photomonitor

Lia Halloran – more inspiration

I really thought I had written about Lia Halloran's work before this, particularly her project, Your Body is a Space that Sees. I adore her use of the cyanotype process in these large-scale images (see Figs. 1 and 2) that have been made to showcase the impact women have had in astronomy since the distant … Continue reading Lia Halloran – more inspiration

Arts Well CIC

I have been running my participatory photography business ShutterPod since 2014. This has only ever been on a part-time basis as I still need to work full-time (Cornwall wages) to cover living costs. It does mean however, that along with public workshops I organise and commissioned events with organisations such as Hayle Heritage Centre, I … Continue reading Arts Well CIC

Lens Culture Art Photography Awards 2018

I took the plunge today and entered some of my Harena Now series into the Lens Culture Art Photography Awards. I decided to opt for the series category, which also enables me to receive a review of my work by an industry professional. And, still being a student I also received a discount on entry … Continue reading Lens Culture Art Photography Awards 2018

Exhibition prints collected

I have to say that I am incredibly pleased with the four more A1 images I collected from Falmouth University's Photolab. An excellent job. The paper, Premium Fine Art-Hahnemuhle Photo Rag, provides wonderful depth of colour. I just want to touch them, but must resist as they have the potential to easily scratch and mark. … Continue reading Exhibition prints collected
