I’m thrilled to announce that a photo of mine has been accepted for the Royal Photographic Society’s International Photography Exhibition. The photo features Marley (who is no stranger to appearing in award winning photos!). The image pays homage to the ‘wet plate Collodion’ technique that was first created in the 1800’s – although on this occasion, the effect was created digitally.
The Exhibition has been running annually for a staggering 160 years, and this year there were nearly 5400 entries from around the world. My portrait is one of only 100 images that have been accepted for the Exhibition.
The International Photography Exhibition has been held almost every year since 1854 – the year after The Society was founded. In the early years, the exhibition included work from some of the world’s most eminent photographers. Now in its 160th year, it is the longest running exhibition of its kind in the world. Read more about the exhibitions’ history, and The Society here.
The exhibition will tour around the UK in 2017/18, starting at PHOTOBLOCK at The Old Truman Brewery, London 13 – 16 October. http://www.trumanbrewery.com/photoblock
