Portraits of Moretonhampstead

This exhibition is Nicky Thompson’s audacious snap-shot of Moretonhampstead folk using a distinctly old-fashioned photographic method called Wet Plate Collodion.

Over one hundred glass plates are being shown alongside more contemporary selfies and video portraits, drawn from a series of workshops aimed at specific age groups, developing knowledge and skill throughout the community. These combine both traditional and contemporary approaches to photographic portraiture.

The exhibition is open 10am-4pm Tuesday to Saturday until 31st October and entrance is free.
