"a trick of the light" is an exhibition of images developed, printed or scanned by, or for, our darkroom users over the last few months.


The show includes medium format black and white images, colour 35mm, lith prints, and even a tri-colour gum over lith print, taken by a group of people from a variety of age groups and photographic backgrounds. We hope it’ll reveal the charm of film photography, whatever camera you use, and encourage more people to try it or come back to it.

Throughout the exhibition, we're hoping to add more images to it, so if you'd like to participate by making darkroom prints, it is not too late!


“a trick of the light” is the final in a series of 9 exhibitions that have been organised at 76m2, Pontypool in 2018, and the 18th in this gallery, by the*kickplate*project, with the support from the Arts Council of Wales, Torfaen Council's Arts Development and Pontypool Community Council.
