Through a glass darkly, 6 – 23 June 2012.

|Penny Dunstan, Through a glass darkly - images drying, 2012|
Penny used the Van Dyke photographic method and printed the images on prayer book paper. The Van Dyke photographic method is an early photographic printing process - named because of the similarity of the print color to that of a brown oil paint named after Flemish painter Van Dyck.

Penny was unable to see how the photos had turned out while she was at Gunyah, the exposure process gave very little away - as you can see in the above image. But Penny said that she was happy with the results she developed when she got home. From the images I've seen I think it will be a beautiful exhibition so visit Podspace if you're in the Newcastle area in June.
