I am not sure what to say about this other than what a great guest, making great work and with a wonderful story to tell. Feeling very inspired in these dark days of plague and pestilence after two hours with Peter. In other news, we finally read out Jeremy North's email from January, never let it be said that we would ever leave a good email behind.
Things we chatted about on the show:
Peter came to our attention via Paul Bullock during a conversation that Simon had with him at the Six Towns Darkroom (another plug). Paul and Peter are both members of the Royal Photographic Society Analogue Group.
Artist and Ethnographer Edward Curtiss and his documentation of Native Americans.
Mr Cad and his wonderful photo store when Peter was putting together his large camera.
Legendary darkroom printer Robin Bell.
Peter said his Outlaw and Miner prints are made to look like photogravure prints – still clueless?
Peter sources most of his paper from specialist paper supplier to the art world R.K.Burt.
Social Anthropologist Sara Pink.
Jack Lowe (Grandson of Arthur) has been documenting RNLI crews for a while now using large format cameras.
Custom Bellows in Birmingham offer a great bellows replacement service as well as selling Bulldog self-assembly LF cameras.
Peter uses a piece of shareware to locally manage print tonality .
Process supplies got a shout out – they are a great supplier for all things film and darkroom.
Currently our meet up at the end of May is still on, BUT, if you haven’t already booked you may want to hold on a while to see how the plague settles down or not.
Why not join us at the “LFPP 2020 Gathering in the Forest” over the weekend of 29th and 30th May.
Bracelands Camp site, Forest of Dean (that’s in the UK for those in the colonies) –
Andrew will be arriving on the Friday and Simon on the Saturday. The main “gathering” will be Saturday evening when we hope to share witty tales of large format japes, drink adult beverages and eat burnt food…..what’s not to love.
Thanks to all those who donated using the Ko-Fi site and to our email contributors, we finally managed to answer some (well two) before running out of time.
Much to Simon’s dismay the Six Towns Darkroom is in lock down for the time being.
