From the Silver Mines

Photography Exhibition

23 February - 8 March 2015

Vestibule of St Mary-le-Bow Church EC2V 6AU

 

Selected portraits from photographer Sean Hawkey’s incredible exploration of the Faitrade certified Sotrami mine in Peru. These special photographs honour 150 year old photography methods which used silver to react to light to create an image.

 

Using a large-format camera and wet plate collodion technique from 1851, Mr Hawkey produced tintype images using silver from the mine. The images captured by his camera are direct from the source, documenting Peruvian miners who have spent their lives extracting silver from the earth.

 

These photos were displayed with kind permission from the Fairtrade Foundation and Sean Hawkey, and have been featured in the New York Times Magazine, and BBC News Online.
