Elaine Vizor Durham, United Kingdom
I am a photographer and a qualified teacher. I tutor workshops in basic digital photography and cyanotype printing. My main practice is in documentary photography. I also have a passion for Camera Obscura and have designed and built my own portable CO. Inspired by largescale artworks I also have a passion for light paintings and abstractions made at night.
I have had commissions in documentary photography and have images on permanent display at AYCLIFFE FABRICATIONS and KILLHOPE LEAD MINING MUSEUM. I have also had commissions in event photography and consider both to be important to my work and funding. I have self-funded work for several solo exhibitions from 2010 including recently: Sept - October 2021 when I had a very successful two part show, ‘How do you like your photography?’ (With or without a camera), at Greenfield Arts, Newton Aycliffe. The two parts were BLACK and LIGHT (digital abstracts) and BLUE and WHITE (Cyanotype prints). March - May 2022, following on I had another very successful extended show of BLUE and WHITE, my creative response to the Coronavirus, work using the Cyanotype process. This was at No42 Gallery, Bishop AUCKLAND. As my CAMERA OBSCURA is now built I plan to seek commissions for workshops and/or events.
