• Alchemy on film - not just Harry Potter

    Irina highly recommended this magical show of experiments with light, shade, chemicals and photosensitive paper at the V&A. Featuring work by international artists including Susan Derges and Adam Fuss, Shadow Catchers: Camera-less Photography posesses ethereal, ghostly elements, juxtaposed with aspects of chemical experiments gone right in the case of Pierre Cordier, a pioneer of this art.

    This is a thrilling display, where the surreal meets the symbolic: one which will make you think more deeply about photographic processes. Runs until 20 Feb 2011.
