Film’s not Dead Printroom is pleased to present ”Mneme’’ the first solo London exhibition by photographer Deborah Parkin.

Holding a strong fascination with childhood and memories, it’s no surprise that Parkin’s inspiration and main subject matter derives from her nearest and dear- est, her children. For Parkin her camera is always ready to capture anything the children might do. Working solely on a large format camera, and using either Fuji instant black and white film or the delicate Wet Plate Collodion process.

This exhibition display’s over 20 beautiful pieces. A mixture of original Tintypes and silver gelatin prints of Fujifilm instant black and white Film.

These prints are small and intimate, keeping to the exact same proportions of the originals, forcing the viewer to become absorbed in Parkin’s very personal and unique work.
