Barry Pratt FRPS

A school friend’s father taught his sons an myself the basic art of developing and printing monochrome images many years ago. I drifted into colour via transparencies and later onto Cibachrome colour printing – once described as standing in a warm bath and tearing up five pound notes!

The turning point came when my wife needed a laundry room so I negotiated for a darkroom as part of the deal. This lead me to concentrate on analogue photography using a variety of film cameras and exploring the subtle nature of monochrome.

PPG is the antithesis of the usual camera club and this appealed to me at the outset when I was invited to join by the founding members.

My aim is to produce work and continue exploring the ability to paint with light.
