The Memory of Shadows – a calotype exhibition
Welcome to Calotype Society’s Biennale exhibition at the Library of Humanities and Social Sciences!
The Calotype Society is an informal group of international photographers who share a passion for the art of handmade photographic processes, in this case the calotype. Started in 2010 on Flickr.com it now has close to 300 followers worldwide. Practitioners meet every two years and the first Biennial meeting was held in Lacock Abbey in 2013, the birthplace of the calotype. This year’s Biennial is held in Oslo, where H.T. Winther practiced his own techniques as a photographer around 1839, the year photography was born. Original, contemporary artwork has been presented in exhibitions in the United Kingdom, Poland, the USA and now in Norway.
