Jo Gane: Photographic Artist & Educator

Elephant Trap Camera

I've been working on a new project in Willenhall, Coventry making and photographing with a unique camera we have designed and produced which blends heritage, cabinet making and performance. 

The project has been produced with Photo Archive Miners and the fantastic team of Jason Scott Tilley, Jamie Hubbard, Mahendra Patel and Johnny Bark.

Coventry Future Voices

I've been fortunate to work with the wonderful Photo Archive Miners and a group of year 6 John Gulson primary school pupils for a Coventry University project which asked the children to imagine what their futures in the city of Coventry might look like.

The project allowed me to help the pupils use hands-on analogue Photography processes to build up their ideas and create a portrait using Cyanotypes, Pinhole Photography and Large Format Film over three sessions.

The resulting artwork has been shown as part of Coventry University's 175 years launch event and will soon be seen on hoardings around the city centre.

New work in progress exploring Drawing and early Photography

I'm thrilled to have been awarded funding from Arts Council England to spend the next year exploring links between early Photography and Drawing inspired by the work of Victorian painter Frederick Henry Henshaw and early photographer George Shaw. Drawing upon knowledge discovered by the late Pete James.

The new work responds to images of the River Cole by both artists. 

Further updates will follow. For ongoing news as this project develops please see my Twitter feed @jo_gane

Lapworth Lates / Light Crystal

I have been making new work in response to the Lapworth Museum's Mineral Wealth collection exploring the way in which the collection refracts light ready for an opening on 19th July as part of their first Lapworth Lates event.

The new work includes both print based photograms and etchings alongside a new sculptural piece.

There will also be the opportunity to make a photogram print of your own at the launch event.

I'll be delivering several alternative process photography workshops at Ikon Gallery as part of the education programme for their latest exhibition, 'In Place of Hate' by Edmund Clarke.

Family workshops in pinhole photography are happening on Tuesday 20th and Thursday 22nd February.

I'll also be leading their creative teacher's retreat on 20th January which will enable teachers to learn how to use pinhole and cyanotype photographic techniques in their classrooms.
