A week today Nottingham-Trent University’s 19th photo festival will commence.
Those that know Bethvictoria.com will know that owner and designer Beth Smith is a current (not for long!) Photography student at Trent and will be displaying work that she has been creating over the last year. Throughout this project she has created work that both looks at photography and interiors. Her practice has developed skills and grown over the course of the project and the work that she will displaying sums up her development perfectly.
All the images within this project have been made with film photography, in the colour darkrooms and the process of cyanotypes. Beth has been photographing Priory House and Oriental Brewhouse, a Bed and Breakfast in Long Bennington. It’s eccentric wonders lend itself to the classic styles of photography that Beth has been using. The images produced for this project look at the sense of the ‘Uncanny’, the familiar in the unfamiliar, the frightening in the unknown.
The festival will be open 26th May – 6th June 2015.
Beth’s work will be displayed at Chaucer Court Workshops, NG1 5LP. Open Monday – Saturday 10am – 5pm. With a private view held on the Thursday 28th May 7.30 – 9.30 pm.
