February 2018. Video Demonstration for National Portrait Gallery exhibition Victorian Giants

I was commissioned by National Portrait Gallery to demonstrate the wet collodion and the albumen printing processes for the Victorian Giants exhibition. 

This video is a shorter version from the original one, which is on display at the gallery until the 20th of May 2018.  The video was done by Mathew Lew and with the support from Gerlind Lorch,  Georgia Atienza, Andrea Easey and Sabina Jaskot-Gill.

January 2018. Exhibition at the Photography Archive and Research Centre (PARC) of the University of The Arts London

From Tuesday 23rd of January until the end of March, the Photography Archive and Research Centre of the University of the Arts will be displaying the outcome of the commission they awarded me during April 2017. 

The commission consisted in a pop up collodion studio open for four days where over 100 women, men and children were photographed, making a remarkable portrait of the people who passed through this much-loved building, which stands at the centre of change in this iconic London neighbourhood. These portraits are part memorial to, and part celebration of its unique character.

PARC has also published the work on the Field Study journal. Both the exhibition and the publication will be part of the UAL Research  Fortnight 2018.  



December 2017. Residency at Whitechapel Gallery

From October 2017 until January 2018, I have been running a series of workshops for families, primary and secondary schools and teachers at the Whitechapel Gallery. This is part of a residency scheme with the Schools and Family Programme at the gallery. 

The residency with the Schools Programme involved the installation of a pop up darkroom and a temporary display at the Creative Studio Floor while other gallery floors where also transformed  during the Family Days. 



November 2017. Commission by The Photographers’ Gallery

This month I have been commissioned by The Photographers’ Gallery to set up a pop up CameraScanner studio for the HYPERANALOGUE weekend.  My Temporary Settlement series was on display at the Gallery during the weekend too.

I also have been teaching a Photographic Processes course at the Victoria and Albert Museum and a salt printing course at Photofusion.
