Yesterday met with Huddersfield Railway Station manager and have confirmed our YVAN microgrant exhibition will open Thursday 18th July, 6:30-9pm as a permanent display in the main waiting room until they need it for something else (for perspective their outgoing show has been up since 2015!). We’re planning to mount each page of Issue 1 and frame some of Bob Clayden’s pinhole camera photos (positives and negatives hung together). We can also use an upstairs private space at the station for a performance/screening/drinks event to launch the show and double up as an Issue 2 open call launch and are currently working on a schedule for that. Invites/press release to be issued in due course but please put that date in your diaries :)
These are some of Bob’s photos made in a suitcase on Platform 2 of Huddersfield Station during our Issue 1 launch event https://www.a-n.co.uk/blogs/dwell-time/post/52554611/ They have about a 10 minute exposure time so the sitter has to take this ‘dwell time’ to show in the photo. The more blurred figures have had less ‘dwell time’ such as the one of the railway staff member stood by the train who was called away on duty only minutes into the exposure dwell time.
