PHOTOGARAGE (article first published : 2008-06-4)

Photogarage is a space and concept created by established local photographer Angela Buckland, in response to enthusiastic individual requests by adults from different walks of life for her to conduct a photographic course. The workspace, a garage, housed the group of eight for the first module which ran for eight mornings over an eight week period.

Photogarage is not a camera club. The group are not hobbyists, nor is the course ruled or limited by the technical skills of the participants. Under the mentorship of Buckland, each member was tasked with familiarising themselves with their individual cameras. From the outset, the emphasis was wholly on visual literacy, on alternative ways of seeing the world, critiquing and understanding the spectrum of photography. The course consisted of a series of interactive lectures, and probing assignments.

The same group approached Angie again for module ii in 2008. This second phase concentrated on developing individual styles and working towards this exhibition. The photographic component is twofold: personal work and a collaboration with the ceramicists under the theme Bright Ideas.

Photogarage students of 2008, trained by local photographer, Angie Buckland are Kerry Duys, Carey Farrell, Andre Fiore, Lisa-Jane Hamlin, Barbara Hertzberger, Anne Schauffer and Ian Todd.

The exhibition closes on June 21 at 13h00.
