Day 1, La Rochelle film Festival
We caught the ten am boat from Dover to Calais and began the five hundred mile drive down to La Rochelle. We were met by Arknaud and Edward at the Center Intermonde after being shown where we would be staying in the residensey, we then went to see the exhibition space. Something to eat late, whilst sat on the harbour wall, We discussed how we would show the work we had bought with us. Andrews first film 'Klippity Klopp' and my autobiographical and self investigative photos, a selection of eight hang the walls. Four Vandyke prints, line the wall outside of the space.
My camera temporarilly dominates the corner of the space, waiting to be used to make the new work in the town, a link to the machine the glass plate negatives I will make and display and the prints that adorn the walls.
