In the summer 2016 the historic Penwith Gallery in St Ives will host PHOTO PIONEER – PHOTO PRIMITIVE. Following on from the highly successful Making Time: New Photographic  Constructions. William Arnold, Andy Hughes, Mel King and Oliver Raymond-Barker will be exhibiting  photographic work. All of the artists utilise various light based processes to generate their individual visions. Their work shares a rigorous enquiry into the materiality of photography; consolidating historic photographic aesthetics with contemporary concerns to enquire into the future of the medium.


Cornwall at large and St Ives in particular has not given photography a significant platform of support, in terms of regularly providing exhibition space and other developmental activity. This second exhibition represents a unique opportunity to act as a catalyst for future photographic development in the area. Further details to follow.
