Exhibitions @ Gallery 1885

A great feature of the Camera Club is that it has its own attractive ground-floor gallery – Gallery 1885 – with high-quality exhibition lighting and hanging space for around 40 exhibition prints. Monthly exhibitions feature outstanding work by one or more members, plus ‘outside’ exhibitions of national standing, as well as members' open exhibitions and competitions.

Gallery 1885 is open to the public – you do not have to be a Club Member to enjoy our exhibitions.

HORTUS MAXIMUS - CINNAMON FAYE

Open View on 11 January 

Hortus Maximus celebrates the astounding variety of natural forms, texture, and contour of vegetables and spices available today in UK.

Originally designed as a monumental site-specific installation for Cinnamon Kitchen in Bishopsgate, the following year the series was invited to lead a show at the new ArtCell Gallery, located inside CRUK Cambridge University Research Institute.  The revised selection focused particularly on chilli fruits vested with beneficial healing properties and expanded to include colour portraits of women from all over the world presenting themselves to the camera, holding vegetables as offerings or votives.

In an era of ultra-processed food, the show entices us to expand our repertoire of edible plants and delight in the spectacular shapes grown by nature. Plants which deserve to be immortalised through a photographic process - before being eaten.

Cinnamon Faye studied photography in the US, the UK and Moscow, and continues to lecture in Photographic Arts across Universities, FE colleges, and charitable venues.  She was a photographer and photojournalist for the BBCChannel 4, numerous Broadsheets and her images and sculptures have also been featured in several magazines including Wallpaper* and Creative ReviewShe has worked in several palaces and been commissioned by the UK Royal family with her portraiture collected by the Royal Academy and the National Portrait Gallery.  Her work explores almost any theme and she embraces alternative processes, as well as digital and film. 

The exhibition is opens on 05 February 2024. The Open View is on 08 February @7pm and everybody is welcome to come along.
