Following on from the highly successful 2014 show Making Time: New Photographic Constructions, and 2015 show Photo Pioneer: Photo Primitive at Penwith Society Gallery. William Arnold, Andy Hughes, Melanie King and Oliver Raymond Barker will be exhibiting new works that utilise a range of analogue and digital processes to generate their individual visions. From William Arnold’s beautiful sequence of cameraless botanical prints to Melanie King’s astronomical cyanotypes that ‘draw from the heavens’ ; from Andy Hughes iconic Plastic Photo-Totem to Oliver Raymond-Barker’s visceral prints exploring the nature of stone - this show is an exciting exploration into landscape and the material potential of photography. Photo Pioneer: Photo Primitive is part of an ongoing concern to develop new audiences and opportunities for the photographic arts within Cornwall. Photo Pioneer: Photo Primitive is a partner of the London Alternative Photography Collective.
