Taking the (restored) deleted fragments of an anonymous external hard drive as its starting point, Divisible Remainder questions the fractured contexts produced by intangible systems of information storage.

Photography lecturer Ryan L. Moule’s excellent solo show at Mission Gallery continues until Sunday 8th November.

Hasselblad Masters 2016 – Public Voting Is Now Open!

The Hasselblad Masters 2016 competition has seen a spectacular 10,700 images entered from over 4,000 photographers. Photographic ability; creativity; compositional skills; conceptual strength and technique have all made a compelling contribution to the art of photography. Entries have been shortlisted and now it’s your turn to judge!

The public vote provides photographers worldwide with the opportunity to influence the result of the Hasselblad Masters competition, with the Public Jury carrying one vote on the main Masters Jury panel.

As a participant in the Hasselblad Public Jury you are invited to help select a winner from each of the ten categories. The Public Jury vote works by using a rating system that allows you to award 1, 2 or 3 stars to an image in each category. The images with the most stars in each category at the end of the voting period will then gain the public vote as part of the main Masters Jury panel. Please note that it is not possible to vote more than once on an image, and once the 6 allotted stars are used up, that image category is considered closed and you can move on to the next category. It is not mandatory to vote in all 10 categories.

To join in the public voting process, simply register or login to your account on the Hasselblad website (www.hasselblad.com) and visit the ‘My Hasselblad’ page, where each of the ten categories are listed.

Public vote closes 30 September 2015.

Alternative Printing Workshops

Our Photography Technician, Sarah Tierney, has led workshops in alternative printing processes this academic year and it has proven to be a huge success amongst the students. They have worked with cyanotypes, saltprints, lithprints, photograms and more.

Traditional printing techniques, salt printing, lith printing cyanotypes and photograms.

Fusing image making by using the chemistry processes of the early photographic practice and combing this with digital technology.

All prints are made from images scanned into the computer and adjusted in image editing software to make digital negative files.

Then digital negatives are contact printed in daylight/sunlight/uvlamps on various art papers coated with the chemistry for the different types desired.

Images are re-scanned to make a final digital image.

et voilà

Year 3 Pub Quiz Fundraiser

Raise your arm, raise a beer, raise a smile, raise some funds for 3rd years everywhere (or at least in Swansea Photography). Form a team – they are even helping you with a suggestion that teams could be 3-6 people. One of the questions may be, “How many people does a Photography fundraiser have to have in each team?” You can go into Mozarts with a ready made answer.
