Dr Peter Moseley
I'm a photographer/printmaker specialising in early photographic processes - photogravure, platinum, carbon transfer, salt, albumen and cyanotype printing. I arrange workshops and provide individual tuition at at universities, colleges and other print studios, both in the UK and abroad.
My life-long interest in photography has been extended with an MA in Printmaking (Brighton University) and, more recently, through a PhD project investigating nineteenth century photographic printing processes at the 'Centre for Fine Print Research' at the University of the West of England.
I have a particular interest in portraiture and have held several solo exhibitions and been shown at the the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, The Royal West of England Academy and The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists. One of my photogravure portraits was been selected for display in the 2016 Taylor Wessing Photography Prize at the National Portrait Gallery.
I'm a qualified and experienced teacher and practitioner and excited about the resurgence of interest in the early contact-printing processes. I hope you have the opportunity to join me at a workshop or demonstration in the near future.
The name - "The Old-Diary Studio" - is in acknowledgement of the cornucopia of information offered by the diaries and papers of the (often unsung) nineteenth century practitioners and explorers.
