RE: Alternative Photography in the Digital Age

FYI myself (based in Japan), Hellena Cleary, Julian Smart, Hamish Stewart, Alex Chater and Tom Sobota (based in Spain) will be putting on a gum/temperaprint exhibition in London this year mid-Oct to mid-Nov. One of the suggested titles is exactly the one you have suggested for your get together. 

The aim of our exhibition is partly to publicise alternative processes. We should try to co-ordinate our plans where possible and maximize the impact of whatever it is we are doing regarding altprocesses.

Personally I avoid anything digital ... but that's just me. Congrats on the 120th anniversary and I think a UK conference is a good idea - I'd be happy to support it.

Subject: Alternative Photography in the Digital Age

Hi There

I have just taken over as President of the Richmond and Twickenham Photographic Society, which is about to celebrate its 120th anniversary

I am a keen alternative photographer indulging in gum, cyanotype and platinum

I do some heavy processing of digital photographs, which I print out in my inkjet printer as large negatives (I can get to A2 and slightly larger)

I then print onto watercolour paper using a light box I've built myself

Can I ask everyone a simple question?

Would there be any interest next year 2010 in a conference or some other "get together" on the topic of "Alternative Photography in the Digital Age"?

If so, what sort of size of an event should I aim for?

What would be the best time of year?

I am keen to try to make it international, am I being too ambitious?

Thank you all in advance
