This exhibition takes a whimsical look at the changing role of the portrait from the dawn of photography to the present day, portrayed through the nineteenth century medium of ambrotype.
Thinking of you comprises three parts:
post-mortem shadow portraits of some small creatures that once shared our house, gleaned from the cobwebs in the corners of the windows.
a collection of miniatures of questionable emotional value.
10 x cased ambrotypes referencing the face as the new gatekeeper of our digital devices.
Thinking of you is showing in Room 3 of Photospace Gallery from 2nd December 2017 to 27th January, 2018.
'For the ancestors of the next millennials.'

So, what exactly is an Ambrotype?

Earthquake strengthening work will soon be undertaken on the building facade. As Su's exhibition room is at the back of the building, viewing should be unaffected. It is possible that viewing in room 1 of the gallery (with Andrew Ross's exhibition), may be disrupted.
