The Gate Darkroom

10 Nov 2017 to 15 Nov 2017

When does one need a map, if not when in unfamiliar territory or a foreign land?

The photographers of the Gate Darkroom are going through a buoyant transition, having recently moved into their new home by the river, in Woolwich. Between the Iris shipwreck and the plastic moulding factory they are navigating a new territory, listening to the river, and searching for light. Memories will help them remember where they came from, and clues found on the way will lead them into an unknown landscape. Elements of information appear and disappear; names are edited out, new lines are marked and realities shift They will explore processes of mapping, shared experience, contours, boundaries, pathways, and inhabiting the urban edgelands.


About the Artist:
We are a group of emerging artists who since 2011 have set up and run a not-for-profit photographic darkroom as a community interest company. We are interested in how photography, the art of drawing with light, weaves into stories and societies. We are based on the south bank of the river down by the Thames Barrier at Thames-Side Studios. Our membership scheme ensures artists, photographers, students and all who wish to work with black & white darkroom photographic processes can do so in a communal & supportive environment. The Gate Darkroom also offers regular photography workshops and community programs.
