Last Sunday, the Sustainable Darkroom of London Alternative Photography Collective, launched it's new book, ‘ re·source.’ It is their third publication and Kiln Photo's Eileen White is one of the contributors.
‘re: source' is a collection of essays, recipes, questions and ideas towards more sustainable photography and unpicks the colonial and social entanglements between materials as resources, embodying the notion of being resourceful as well as considering the relationship between resources as a source of wealth or revenue. This publication acts as a resource in and of itself; providing valuable information to those wanting to learn about ecologically conscious photography.
The Sustainable Darkroom, is described as "an artist-run research, training and mutual learning programme, designed to equip cultural practitioners with new skills and knowledge to develop an environmentally friendly photographic darkroom practice which takes its form in publications, residencies, workshops, talks, symposiums and training sessions. The Sustainable darkroom intends to lead a movement in challenging the environmental impact and sustainability of darkroom practices. "
Eileen is also taking part in 'Hampshire Open Studios' alongside other artists of The Yard studios in Winchester. They will be open Saturday and Sunday, 20 & 21 August, and Friday - Sunday, 26 - 28 August, 11:00 - 17:00. Eileen will be showing visitors her working practice and a variety of prints that use sustainable darkroom materials and processes.
