Photograph by Alan Duncan 2014. Wetplate
I have worked at Loughborough University for over 25 years, my current role is a University Teacher in Creative Digital Technologies. Previous to working at Loughborough University I have been a fine art practitioner, furniture maker, theatre scenic artist and design prototype technician.
My background was in Fine Art practice but over the years I bridge out into photography and digital technologies that led to a two year part time Photography MA by Research Project at Nottingham Trent University undertaken between 2012-2014.
My personal scholarship at Loughborough University focuses on digital and analogue imaging and in my own time I make large format cameras that I use to photograph the ever changing British landscape. I am currently part of a project called the Studio of Light based within the School of Design and Creative Arts. The ‘Studio of Light’ is a research laboratory and studio dedicated to photography and its reproduction bringing together the contemporary and the antiquarian – digital, the analogue and the hybrid. We are currently focused on reviewing ‘alternative’ photographic and reprographic processes that date back to the 19th-Century to bring them into a 21st-Century context for the benefit of contemporary photographers, artists, conservators and educators.
