6/6 Drawing to a close our first IG Takeover with darkroom Master @richardheeps and the wonderful @bleachboxphotographygallery as part of our second Affordable Online Art Fair, we asked him what he has in store for 2021:⁠⁠
.⁠⁠
“All projects are ongoing, there is not a sense of one finishing and one starting, it’s a constant evolution. There’s a couple of series off shoots that I am working on. One the East Coast, looking at my images from the East Coast of America and pairing them with images of the East Coast of England. I am working on a series with a working title of On the Road, where I am looking at my American Road Trips with a different approach twenty years later. In this series the road is the central theme, the image within the film has a cinematic quality to it. I think this has been inspired by being restricted to my home, by not being able to travel, looking back at past journeys with fresh eyes. I am also working on a new book which is a big project as I am editing from thirty years of work. And after a year break Cambridge Open Studio is bound to be buzzing this year, I will be taking part and looking forward to visiting my fellow participants. It will be a great event for staycationers to do something different whilst visiting Cambridge.”⁠⁠
.⁠⁠
Please join us in giving a massive thanks to Richard and the lovely Bleach Box team for today’s dreamy takeover. Perfectly indulgent for keen photographers and those who enjoy a trip down the old road to Déjà Vu alike! It’s certainly got us inspired to dig out our film cameras and ditch the digital. If you want to bring a bit of artwork that celebrates the analogue into your home, head to the link in our bio to shop all of today’s featured photographs and photograms in The Affordable Online Art Fair. ⁠⁠

1/6 To kick off the Affordable Online Art Fair we’re introducing a new series where we’ll ask a different artist to take over our feed every weekend throughout the month-long digital edition. To make sure that we get things started with a bang, we’re thrilled to hand over the feed today to a master of lens-based photography, @richardheeps from @bleachboxphotographygallery. ⁠
.⁠
Richard’s distinctive photographic style pushes the limits of film photography, experimenting with traditional printing techniques without the need for digital manipulation, from his Cambridge-based darkroom. Known for his cool, descriptive interiors, classic Americana still life and landscape photography, his true love of his subject matter really shines through in his sophisticated, seductive and highly saturated photographic work. You can find all the works featured today and many more by Richard in the Affordable Online Art Fair until May 3 or simply tap the images as they appear in feed to shop direct. ⁠
.⁠
Richard, along with photographer Natasha Heidler, founded Bleach Box Photography Gallery in 2007 with the aim to show powerful images created without digital editing. When the gallery took part in their first Affordable Art Fair at our Battersea Autumn event, they were the only dedicated photography gallery and from that success they’ve followed our fairs around the world opening up a new market of photography collectors! The gallery’s impressive roster of fine art photographers includes the likes of Samuel Field and Martin Parker so definitely give their gallery viewing room a visit today to be one of the first to snap up their limited edition photographic prints. ⁠
