How it all came into being – Platform 18 Event

A Portrait of an Artist –  A Platform 18 event

Following the success of the inaugural ‘Platform’ Festival in March 2017, Perthshire Creates and Culture Perth and Kinross hosted a follow up  Festival from 24th to 31st March 2018 across Perthshire and Kinross.

Three Perthshire based photographers, Jo Cound, Jamie Grant and Dave Hunt came together to create ‘The Silver Alchemy Collective’. Each photographer will be working in alternative styles of capture and image presentation to celebrate analogue photography as part of the Culture Perth and Kinross ‘Platform 18’ event.

The venue was the impressive Civic Hall in Perth city centre. The eight day event included presentation of their work and their background processes used and talks and practical demonstrations.

the event was a huge success and brought together many folk that are either interested in or are practising analogue photographic processes.
