About

“lost and found” is an exhibition of analogue photographs brought to the gallery by our visitors from Bargoed and beyond.

In the times of omnipresent digital photography we wanted to remind everyone about the importance of physical prints that don’t get deleted easily and that can last for generations. We asked people to have another look at their photo albums, that all of us used to have and fill up with memories of holidays, celebrations and snapshots of everyday life.

They are not only accounts of people’s past, but also of the past of photographic and printing techniques that are no longer used on a mass scale, as well as anthropological and historical documents.

The photographs will be presented as prints and projections on our gallery walls.

We’d like to thank everyone who trusted us with their photographs and thus gave us an insight into their lives and artistic endeavours.

The exhibition will run between 09.03-26.03 and will be open Monday to Saturday, from 10:30 to 18:00.
