About The Light Gatherers lecture series
This public lecture series, beginning March 2022 and running until May 2023, is part of Garry Fabian Miller's Honorary Fellowship with the Bodleian Libraries.
The series will consider the central place of the darkroom in the history of chemical photography, and lead attendees through his process, uses of light and dark, and his unique exploration of colour. He will also discuss his influences, from Enlightenment experimenters tasked with trying to preserve light, to Magic Lantern projectionists, the Bauhaus movement from the early 20th century and the final days of darkrooms.
Garry has also authored an associated publication to the lecture series entitled Dark Room: A Memoir, which will feature an essay by celebrated artist and writer Edmund de Waal and is available to buy from the Bodleian Shop.
