Open Eye: Photography Walk with RIBA
Venue: Open Eye Gallery
Join Open Eye and RIBA North West for an architectural tour of Liverpool!
Lomography cameras and 1 roll of film provided. Feel free to bring your own equipment.
Liverpool established its international reputation as the pre-eminent Gateway for shipping, trade and the movement of people leaving one continent to find new lives in another. The city that was created to service this exchange is rich in its buildings, streets and public spaces. Many of these have changed use since they were originally built helping to create the vibrant modern Liverpool that exists today. The tour puts a spotlight on key buildings and public spaces, using them to tell the story of Liverpool’s past, present and future.
Lomography started out as a spontaneous artistic approach to photography in the Vienna underground scene. On the one hand, analogue photography is traditional; it’s got an amazing history which stretches back a couple of hundred years. But film photography also opens up all kinds of real-time experimental possibilities; you can use techniques such as multiple exposures, sprocket-hole photography and cross-processing to get artistic and beautiful effects. You can’t see your photos until they’ve been developed but that’s part of the fun; analogue photography encourages you to embrace each moment and get creative!
Please arrive 10 minutes early to collect your Lomography camera. Please also be aware the walking tour is 2 hours long and we will take in as many buildings as possible! You may wish to purchase additional rolls of film from our gallery shop.
Fee: £20 (£15 for concessions)
