Festival of Victorian Photography

Sixteen photographers visited Saltburn earlier this month to photograph scenes with a Victorian slant. The photographers, who are participating in the Festival of Victorian Photography, came to Saltburn to shoot images using traditional Victorian techniques.

Their works will be exhibited in The Festival of Victorian Photography and will be on display at the Artsbank Gallery, Milton Street, Saltburn, from 2nd – 29th July 2011.

On 2nd July John Brewer will give a public demonstration at the Toc H building, off Albion Terrace, of the wet collodion process, which was used during the two-day April visit.

The visit, exhibition and demonstration are part of events being held to mark Saltburn’s 150th anniversary.
