Peter GoldfieldPeter Goldfield’s exhibitions, Second Sight, See-Saw and Man Made have been seen internationally. He has taught at St. Martin’s School of Art, London, and the University of West England as well as leading workshops in exotic locations, from Finland to Derbyshire, the International Center for Photography in New York, and lectured as ‘The Electronic Cheapskate’ at the Photographers’ Gallery (referring to the cost of equipment - not quality of work!). Previously well known running Goldfinger and Fingerprints Gallery in London and author of the, now almost mythical, Goldfinger Craftbook for Creative Photography, before setting up Photographers at Duckspool. Fearful Symmetry, a personal photographic interpretation of England’s Fenland was produced between 1982 and 1990, incorporating contemporary poetry and glass engraving. Particularly interested in the distinction between photographic and human seeing, Leaves of Wood (1985-1990), resulted from his move to the Somerset countryside in 1985. He has been working within the photographic tradition using electronic cameras and a computer "lightroom" for the last few years. New work was exhibited in 1997 at the Golowan Festival and as part of DePICT, a collection of digital photography projects in progress by leading exponents in the field, at Photofusion in Brixton, London in 1999. He is a contributor to the Year of the Artist in 2000 and a panel selector for South West Arts
He is currently one of a thousand selected artists in Great Britain commissioned to produce public art works for The Year of the Artist. (see Flying Colours/ Somerset Arts Week
A Drop To Drink, massive digital photographic sculptures commences in September 2000
About the workshop
Everything you wanted to know about Electronic Imaging, Digital Photography and the Internet - suitable for all levels of Photography, & high levels of technophobia!
Peter’s interest in the new digital medium
has developed since 1978 when he purchased (second-hand) an 8k Commodore Pet.
Progressing to networking two thrown out 64k machines from Barclays Bank. After
setting up Duckspool, another second-hand 386 20Mhz got him involved in trying
to make and print images and he transferred his own practice to making
photographs solely via electronic means with a video camera.
