News and Opportunities

Having Photography as a hobby means that peeople may buy the gear, but not have a rounded awareness of how to use it properly. If you’re new to an SLR camera it can be hard to move forward and many people get stuck in “Auto” mode.

 

University of Salford is launching a series of short courses in the new year. Three of them are photography based: introduction to darkroom photography, intermediate darkroom photography, and photography for performance.

A new exhibition portraying the skills and satisfaction of manual occupations is coming to The Treasure House, Beverley, on Saturday 10 November. The creation of photographer Peter Barker, ‘Working Hands’ is a series of photographs which show how hand and mind are linked in skilled work, from bookbinding to sheepshearing, from hat making to dog grooming. The photographs suggest a connection between inner and outer worlds, between body and mind, and between thinking and doing.

Through photography, film and audio, artist Kevin Crooks has been documenting a number of individuals and community groups situated in the port cities of Hull and Liverpool since 2017. Throughout the production of You’re Only Here for the Culture, Kevin has captured personal accounts from people who have been directly and indirectly impacted by the legacy of both European Capital of Culture in Liverpool and UK City of Culture in Hull, ten years apart. Kevin wanted to explore how in the short and long-term future these significant cultural events may alter and affect communities in these cities.
