About

Frances is an artist, photographer, and art and photography teacher who lives in North East London. She has been making analogue photographs and films for 19 years and has exhibited in various London venues.

Her work explores the nature of representation in photography – what is an accurate representation? How “truthful” is photography? How much and in what ways does it distort? How can a place be presented to a person who hasn’t visited it? How abstracted from sight can a photograph be, and yet still be an indexical record of a moment? 

She creates a “portrait of a place” in her work; a sense of the experience of specific places; looking for the details which make a place, or a person’s understanding of it unique, and experimenting with the intervention of lens and light based technology on our way of seeing.

All the pieces are hand printed in the darkroom or by hand using older processes. Those which have colour have either been embroidered onto or have been hand tinted using vintage print toners and dyes. 

This is a show of recent and brand new, previously unseen photographic works.
