ESPY TALK | Phrame Collective
Published May 20th 2021.
To celebrate the launch of ESPY’s latest online exhibition, Inner Landscapes by Phrame Collective member, Patricia Ziad, we are pleased that our next talk will be led by members of Phrame Collective. The talk will explore ideas of collectivism and the history of the group, and their hopes and goals surrounding equality and inclusivity.
Phrame Collective was co-founded in 2018 by Celia Jackson and Lisa Edgar, with the aim to promote and support emerging female photographers and females working in photography in the South Wales area. Phrame is open to everyone, regardless of age, gender, race, class or creed. The collective offers a warm welcome, shared expertise and energy, and an empowering, inclusive atmosphere to all. Phrame Wales seeks to amplify individuals under-represented in photography in South Wales. Promoting equality, opportunity and excellence in photography, it is led by the concerns, values and vision of its members.
Some members of the collective are also currently exhibiting works in Ode to Anna at Llantanarm Grange Arts Centre, a photographic exhibition inspired by the work of Anna Atkins, one of the first female photographers and a pioneer of the cyanotype process. The exhibition is open till the 19th of June.
The talk will be held via zoom on Wednesday 26th of May, 7:30 pm (gmt), will last for approximately one hour and is free to join.
Please note all talks will be recorded and then uploaded to YouTube at a later date.

Works in the exhibition embody Patricia's close familiarity with the spaces, textures and patterns seen in rural Wales, and how they are resonated in her imagination through the process of using chemigrams - a technique that she has spent years researching and experimenting with where resists and traditional dark room chemicals are used to create an image on light sensitive paper.
The exhibition will launch on Friday 21st of May in our online gallery.
