White Room Dark Room: Featuring Bill Jackson and Ray Spence

About

The White Room Gallery presents its first photography exhibition: White Room Dark Room. The exhibition features two contrasting contemporary photographers: Bill Jackson and Ray Spence, both Fellows of The Royal Photographic Society. The show also celebrates the launch of the White Room's new range of ‘Dark Room' photography, an exclusive collection of images by their in-house photographers and William Basing. Bill Jackson was one of the leading pioneers of digital art; he has explored digital film, video and multimedia installations but his main passion is still photography. Jackson is currently working on a series of long exposure images where shots can be left for up to twenty minutes to expose. Bill exhibits extensively and represented British Contemporary Photography at the Brno Museum in Prague. His works has been show all around the world in galleries and museums including The National Portrait Gallery London and The Royal Academy. His work has won many awards including The Gold Award at the Graphics International Photography Annual Awards in New York. He currently spends time between his studio near the Suffolk coast and London. His work is in many private and public collections. Ray Spence originally trained as a Microbiologist and a passion for natural forms, particularly the body, plants and the minutiae of life, is deeply evident in much of his work. For thirty years, Ray has specialised in Monochrome printing and alternative printing processes; he now works exclusively in digital imaging and produces digital prints using the latest archival inks and papers. Spence is also a lecturer and author with his work featured in numerous photography books and journals; his careers as a photorapher and educator run in tandem and he is currently a full-time lecturer at Birmingham City University.
