George Shaw online talk and in-person workshop

George Shaw online talk and in-person workshop

I've been invited by the Jewellery Quarter Cemetaries Project to talk about the life of George Shaw (1817-1904) who is laid to rest in Key Hill Cemetary. 

Shaw was one of Birmingham's first photographers and a very well connected and interesting figure in Victorian Birmingham.

This talk will discuss Shaw's life and works and also new photographic artwork produced in response to Shaw's practice, using historic processes.

The talk will take place on Wednesday 21st July from 6.30 - 7.30 pm online through zoom.

Alongside this, I'll be running a hands-on workshop in the Cyanotype photographic process at Warstone Lane Cemetary on 11th August, with the opportunity for participants to make their own prints inspired by natural forms within the cemetary.
