Out with the New: Historical Photographic Processes

Join us as we hear from photographers who are adopting historical photographic techniques to create their own take on contemporary practice. New Zealand photographer Stuart Clook will present his work that he prints using platinum and palladium processes, amongst others, to enhance the drama of his landscapes. US-based Dale Rio, who has also embraced historical processes in her own portraiture work, has cofounded a non-profit organisation in Philadelphia, The Halide Project, to foster appreciation and continued practice of these processes.

As part of the Festival's Core Programme Stuart Clook's work is on show at Studio 541 from 4 - 20 June.
