Scarborough photographer David Chalmers had drawn inspiratin ofr his latest exhibition from North Yorks Moors National Park.

His Carbon to Carbon opens at Woodend Creative Workspace gallery on September 1 and runs until October 13.

“These ‘photo-charcoal prints’, as I like to call them, encapsulate the beauty and vulnerability of our forests as I see them. The unpredictability of carbon dust embedded in each print has created a unique tonal scale that can never be repeated,” said David. He has used a large format field camera to capture his images on 8 x 10ins film, and has produced photographic prints using a revised Victorian process called ‘carbon transfer printing’.

During the exhibition, on alternate Saturdays, He will be in convesation with photographer Joe Cornish on September 25 at 1pm.
