The biennial exhibition features a wide range of photographic explorations including pinhole camera images, plastic Holga camera pictures and a sampling of various antique processes such as Cyanotypes, Gum Prints, Polaroid processes and cross processed methods. Also on display will be a range of contemporary digital explorations and inventive collage techniques.
