Magnus Jackson: Photographer Exhibition

11th November 2017 - 3rd March 2018 Perth Museum and Art Gallery

Powerful images made by Magnus Jackson Victorian photographer of Perth.

This innovative exhibition shows the images as negatives to celebrate the wet-plate collodion process – a negative to positive photographic process that used plates individually hand coated by the photographer and exposed whilst still wet.

The process is now enjoying a revival of interest and the exhibition also features the work of five contemporary photographers using collodion.

Brittonie Fletcher has exhibited internationally and is displaying work from her 2012-13 project recording musicians and customers at the famous Sandy Bells folk bar in Edinburgh.

David Gillanders is an award winning photojournalist whose fascination with the wet collodion process of image making began with a small Victorian ambrotype he received as a gift.

Dave Hunt is a Perthshire based photographer who combines the collodion process with a more contemporary style of image.

Alex Boyd is a widely exhibited photographer and curator based in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland whose work explores remote and northern landscapes.

Jack Lowe photographer and RNLI enthusiast has recently passed the 100 mark in his ambitious and sometimes gruelling project to capture all 237 RNLI lifeboat stations on glass plate.
