Two photographers from two different eras, each have a passion for travel and photography, both using film as their medium. This exhibition spans over 3 decades with Frank Little, using an Olympus OM1 who started his wanderings in 1980. Taking his camera armed with Kodachrome and black and white film, he travelled widely around the world over a 10 year period. His work captures the everyday in a quiet reflection which invites the viewer to delve in and be taken on a journey of forgotten times as well as new work from a recent trip to Vietnam.
Sébastien Rannou, a emerging photographic artist, wanderings through Europe unveiling the unusual where shadow and light come together creating a stillness. His images ask the viewer to stop for a moment in time embodying the silence that emanates from his work.
About The Darkroom
The Darkroom was founded in 2010 by Visual Artist and Photographer Mella Travers. Mella began her photographic career in the 1990s, working for many prestigious fashion publications, while also maintaining an extensive personal practice. Her work has been exhibited widely in Ireland, including VISUAL Carlow and RHA Dublin.
Beginning as a small space at the artist collective Block T in Smithfield, The Darkroom has expanded and grown, and in 2016 moved to a purposely fitted and designed space centrally located in Stoneybatter. Housing a studio, gallery, and a large, black and white darkroom.
