Join photographer Henry Iddon as he shares his experience documenting contemporary rock climbers and wild swimmers using an 1890s bellows camera, originally owned by pioneers of climbing, sports and landscape photography, George and Ashley Abraham.

Henry will offer an insight into the processes, ideas and challenges faced by working with large format photography on location as well as the enjoyment of using a wooden bellows camera in the wild landscapes occupied by modern-day outdoor adventurers - settings which may not have changed at all since this camera and these pursuits first came into being.

Henry’s image Outdoor Swimmers, Ullswater, Cumbria, from the series ‘Instanto Outdoors’ was selected for the RPS International Photography Exhibition 160 currently touring the UK, showing at Chapel Gallery 17 March - 14 April 2018. (The gallery open hours will be extended for an opportunity to view the exhibition after the talk),

The ‘Instanto Outdoors’ series was funded by Arts Council England and has featured on BBC Countryfile, with the full 28 images exhibited at Keswick Museum and Art Gallery in 2016.

Henry Iddon has over 18 years experience as a professional photographer supplying location photography of action, architecture, documentary and modern lifestyles.

He has received numerous awards and his personal work is held in collections worldwide including Kraszna-Krausz Collection, National Media Museum, UK; George Eastman House, Rochester, USA; State Library of New South Wales, Australia; Banff Centre for Mountain Culture, Canada; Centre for Contemporary Photography, University of Arizona, USA.
