Phillip England PhD is a Tasmanian photographer who is involved in the revival of collodion tintype and its adaptation to contemporary artistic practice. Collodion tintype photography was invented in the 1850s and commonly used for portraiture until the end of the 19th century. It involves exposing blackened metal plates coated with photographic emulsion in a large format bellows camera.
When Phillip took up residency for a week at Cradle Mountain he also set up an exhibition of his work. Staring back at visitors were the faces of many people who have sat for him, as well as the subtle and haunting images of flowers.
And will check on dates of exhibitions and get back to you.
