European Travelling Portfolio 2007/2008

Hellena Cleary and Alex Chater took the initiative to open The European Travelling Portfolio, with participants from Europe. The prints are approximately A4 size and will spend a long time travelling from participant to participant and perhaps to exhibitions too.

Rebecca Bushner

From Tucson, Arizona, USA has sent us her Cyanotypes in Mixed Media. Rebecca prints the cyanotype, then applies acrylic paint, ink, and pencil to create a cross between a photograph and a painting.

Alexey Belov

A math teacher from Zelenograd in Russia with a passion for many of the alternative processes such as Lithprints, Liquid emulsion, Polroid transfers, and Oilprints shows his work.

Stanislav Belyaevsky

from St Petersburg (living in Finland) is a ballet dancer spending his spare time exploring alternative photographic processes such as Bromoils and Liquid emulsion.

Ruben arrived!

On the 27 of January we had a little boy, weighing in at a little over 4 kg - 9 pounds. Of course, we are hoping he will have an interest in photography and be an addition to "the alternative photographic process familiy"! Here he is, just a few days old.
