Artist and curator Debbie Adele Cooper joins us to share an insight into two of her recent projects: Derby Anon/If on a Winter’s Night, produced during a long-term artist residency with W. W. Winter Ltd, one of the world’s longest running photographic studios, founded in 1867 in Derby; and Unseen & Unheard Things, her latest project produced during an artist residency at Dartmoor Prison, where she created new audio and photographic work in response to the diaries of both past and present prisoners. 

Her work with the archives of the W. W. Winter Ltd collection has been exhibited at FORMAT Festival and will soon tour to Beijing, China. It has been featured widely on the web and in print, including the British Journal of Photography and The Telegraph. 

Cooper’s artistic practice involves the use of both digital and analogue photographic techniques including glass plate, cyanotype and other alternative processes; high-resolution digital scanning, sculpture, installation and sound. She regularly teaches glass plate photography at darkrooms around the UK.
