Before photography, it was known that some chemicals were sensitive to light. At the beginning people were experimenting with these 'light sensitive' materials to make sunprints. If you place objects on top of paper that is light sensitive it will mask that area and stop it reacting with the sun. The area not covered will react (usually darken - certainly change colour).
FRESH FROM THE ESSEX BOOK FESTIVAL!
‘Words from the Edge and other Drosscapes’
Alan Hockett and Judith Wolton offer a presentation in words and images of work arising from their love of the Essex landscape, its changes, dereliction and re-enchantment.
Through the unusual medium of pinhole photography, Alan explores the marginal landscapes - areas that, with industrial decline, have fallen into disuse and dereliction and are now slowly being reclaimed by the forces of nature.
Judith’s poetry arises out of her contemplation of coastal margins, marshlands and estuaries – and the idea of life ‘on the edge’. She was inspired by Alan’s mysterious images to write responses to them.
Together, they have made a beautiful new book Words from the Edge and other Drosscapes, featuring Judith’s lyrical poetry and Alan’s haunting images.
