About The Light Gatherers lecture series

This public lecture series, beginning March 2022 and running until May 2024, was part of Garry Fabian Miller's Honorary Fellowship with the Bodleian Libraries.

The series explored the central place of the darkroom in the history of chemical photography. Garry Fabian Miller led attendees through his process, uses of light and dark, and his unique exploration of colour. He also discussed 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.

Each lecture is available to watch below:

Garry also authored an associated publication to the lecture series entitled Dark Room: A Memoir, which features an essay by celebrated artist and writer Edmund de Waal and is available to buy from the Bodleian Shop.
