Brief description from the posting last week on the ED Forum:
Stumbled across a remarkable exhibition of street photography yesterday by Herne Hill resident and photographer, Trevor Christie. Sadly, there are just two days left for this show - it ends Saturday night, September 3rd, at 10pm. But the good news is that you still have time to catch it. Well worth doing so. Something like 300 B&W and colour prints covering 4 walls at Diverse Gallery which is located at 62 Atlantic Road. What's really nice is that this is traditional photography not digital. 35mm film stock and hand done prints. The exhibition is titled 'Steel and Glass' as these represent the main components of the traditional camera. There's a broad range of subject matter but most of it is urban portraiture which portrays lean, stark and confused times but does so with a sense of wonder. This magically transforms gritty into beauty and lends it a timelessness. Shadows, ghosting and blurring blend reportage with impression - some photos are reminiscent of 40s and 50s urban realism but are layered with an ethereal quality due to imperfection only tactile photography and its processing can bring.
You can see many of the works on show on his Flickr web pages and these include print titles as well as notes (http://www.flickr.co...s/37663439@N03/) but you'd do so much better seeing these in person to fully appreciate them. Digital doesn't do them justice.
