Portraits in black and white

Black and white photo of Chris McPheeChris McPhee is originally from Manchester, England but has lived just outside Toronto, Canada since 2003. He started shooting with a Petri GX-1 bought from Dixons in 1982, moved to digital in 2005 and now shoots both digital and film. He values the thoughtfulness that film enforces over the ability to get a quick fix from the DSLR. Having made a move back to film he’s now taken advantage of the tremendous second-hand prices for analog equipment and has set up a darkroom so he can develop and print his own films.

Self-portraiture as Catharsis

Black and white photo of Corrine PerryCorinne Perry’s evocative and deeply personal self-portraiture is a reflection of her natural melancholic temperament. Through the process of photography as the re-creation of memory space, she is offered a cathartic release. The resulting photographs highlight a distinctively dark and intimate struggle, enabling the viewer to connect with the work on a personal level. She currently resides within the West Midlands and studied photography at Birmingham City University graduating in 2012. Her work has been exhibited at galleries including TATE Liverpool, Croome Court National Trust and The Beaney Museum, Canterbury. She was a guest speaker at The Bluecoat, Liverpool as part of Look 15 Liverpool’s International Photography Festival and more recently at The Photography Show, Birmingham both with Redeye Network.
