Ed Watts is showcasing his work in two exhibitions at Colonnade House; one based on his love for the Cyanotype photographic printing process and another on the adventures of the ever playful Dippy the Dino across Worthing and beyond.
Gallery 1: Adventures in Invisible Light:
Studying photography at Nottingham Trent University where he specialised in pinhole photography was where Ed Watts developed an interest in alternative process – any non-traditional photographic printing process.
It was during this time period where he also worked for several national magazines photographing the great and good of the club scene, leading into a career in celebrity photography. It was from working in his spare time where Ed continued experimenting with alternative processes, shifting from pinhole to infrared where his creative journey became inspired by the other-worldly beauty of its landscape photography.
In recent times during lockdown, Ed rediscovered his love for the Cyanotype process of photography and the images in the exhibition feature many of the objects discovered on one of his many long ‘stomps’ across the beautiful South Downs.
Gallery 2: Dippy the Dino Show-osaurus:
Dippy the Dino is back in his favourite gallery in his favourite town!!!
It’s been a few years since Dippy left the Natural History Museum to make a new life for himself here in Worthing, so come along and see the adventures of this delightful Diplodocus!
Dippy’s search for love and companionship has taken him all over Worthing and beyond and his story, so far, is told in colourful screenprints and this will be your first chance to get your claws on some brand spanking new Dippy merch, which will launch at the Show-osaurus!
