On 6th August we opened photographer Steve Pulvernis's exhibition 'The Ever-Changing Past' - an analogue hand-printed collection at Stour Space Gallery.

​Working as a professional photographer during the 1990s, it was in the darkroom where Steven found his niche; working with monochrome negatives.

​The theme of this body of work is centred on street art within the context of the streamlined architecture of old and new through east London; concentrating on two main areas, Hackney Wick and Nomadic Gardens (RIP).

​With their ever-changing canvas and a wealth of both old and new structures, Steve searches for the angles to create the most aesthetic image. For him, cropping of the square Hasselblad negatives in the darkroom and composition are vital definitions of his photographic practice.
