Scottish artist Frank McElhinney has been selected to exhibit as part of Impression Remains, the main exhibition of Helsinki Darkroom Festival. Celebrating current darkroom art and the creative possibilities of analogic photography. The exhibition introduces eleven photographers who have been selected among 394 applicants who responded to the festival’s open call.
The exhibition features artwork from the last couple of years and the international artists represent different perspectives and ways of expression. There are images produced with a camera as well as images created using only chemical processes. What is common to all the artwork in this exhibition is that their physical form is an inseparable part of the process of their creation.
