You are invited to the exhibition launch of 52 Cameras in 52 Weeks by the fantastic photographer Tony Kemplen. The exhibition celebrates 52 photographs and the corresponding cameras used to make them. The photographs represent a wide range of cameras, techniques and subjects, and Tony’s approach to image-making is every bit as important as the technical aspects of the project.

During the evening there will be refreshments available, the artist Tony Kemplen will also be there for you to celebrate with and ask any questions about the exhibition.

We really hope to see you there.

About the Exhibition

Tony Kemplen has been collecting cameras for over 50 years and in 2010 he decided to use them. For a decade, he has used a different film camera each week of the year – 522 cameras in 10 years. Since 2011, he has also written a monthly column about the project for Amateur Photographer Magazine. This exhibition therefore straddles the worlds of contemporary art and amateur photography.

About the Artist – Tony Kemplen

Tony Kemplen has exhibited work in Babel at Ikon Gallery in 1999; Encyclopaedia Mundi in 2003 – an ambitious touring project shown in Leeds, Derby and Lancaster, which came to QUAD’s predecessor Q Arts; created work for Futuresonic, the Sheffield Pavilion at Istanbul Biennale in 2009 and for other festivals; and created and exhibited work as part of ‘utk’, a collaboration with three other artists. He has also made a large number of artists’ books, many of them now in national collections.
