The Gathering

A collection of handmade photographs from 2012

For many years now, 25+ photographers gather at Gold Street Studios along with their large format cameras, ranging from 4’x5″ up to 20″ x 24″ in size and spend the weekend out on the town and beyond. Chris Reid from Blanco Negro is the lab rat, spending most of Saturday in the darkroom processing the films for Sunday’s slideshow.

The weekend is in the sprit of learning, with many old hands teaching the new and so much knowledge shared it’s almost scary.

On display was a collection of hand crafted photographs, mostly printed by the photographers themselves from the surrounds of Trentham, Victoria.
