The Lewis Glucksman gallery in Cork is currently showing a selection of works from the collection of David Cronn. This exhibition was first shown at the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) during the summer of 2011, and has been reworked by the curatorial team at the Glucksman. See the Glucksman website for more details.

We are planning a trip to see the exhibition on Sat 4th February. We’ll be meeting at 1pm at the main gate to UCC on Western Road. Anyone who wishes to join us is more than welcome. It would be great to meet some fellow Cork photographers!

Kodak files for chapter 11

Kodak filed chapter 11 today. Writing has been on the wall for a while, but still a shock and sad to see it, particularly for those in the US.

It’s been all around the web today, but as usual Mike Johnston puts it very well on The Online Photographer.

The antidote to the tyranny of technology

We like our toy cameras here at CorkAP (well not all of them), and today I came across an interesting link on Lenscratch to Holga Photographer Michelle Bates. There’s a link to an informative little video of her speaking at the TEDxRainier in Seattle.  Take a look at Michelle’s website for some Holga inspiration. Great stuff up there! Makes me want to get my Holga out again soon. It’s been too long!

Kodachrome documentary

Nice little documentary about Kodachrome, the first colour film, which was discontinued in 2010. Worth 10 mins of your time

I’ve been meaning to drop the word for a few local Irish business’s that should be of interest to photographers here on the auld sod. *

First up, opened a few months ago is The Photo Shop, an online supplier of darkroom supplies – film, paper, chemistry, as well as some darkroom gear like trays, tanks, reels etc. Competitively priced and reasonable shipping

Next up is Right Brain. This Cork based printing company who specialise in working with visual artists and creative professionals. They are the only Epson Digigraphie certified print lab in Ireland, and one of Hahnemühle’s Certified Fine Art Print Studios for digital Fine-Art Printing.

Finally, if you are Cork based, or within reasonable commuting distance of Cork city, watch out for The Dark Room @ Camden Palace Hotel. The Dark Room aims  to support and encourage the photographic community in Cork
by providing a broad range of resources, both in terms of a physical place to
work and a forum for exchanging ideas. Offering traditional darkroom printing and film processing facilities along with workshops talks and courses exploring the many aspects of photography.
