Weekly Digest - 13/4/20

Welcome to the third edition of Ffotogallery’s weekly digest! Whilst our offices and gallery are closed, we’re still busy working from home to bring you the latest updates, including creative activities you can take part in at home, resources you can browse online, and we’ll be sharing what arts organisations further afield have on offer.

Competition Time

Congratulations to last week’s winner of our #angles photo competition, Aled Davies! Thanks to everybody who entered – over the coming weeks, we’ll be setting up an online gallery of all of the entries we receive, so keep an eye out on our ‘Channel’ page.

We’re kicking off the week with a new theme – windowsill. Feeling inspired by Daniel Blaufuks’ book Attempting Exhaustion, in which he photographs the same window in his kitchen between 2009 and 2016, we’d like you to photograph your own windowsill still lives (and what better time to do it!) Think about the composition of objects, the time of day and how it effects the lighting. Thank you to Daniel for letting us reference his images, and take a look at his Instagram page to see some more examples. Don’t be afraid to experiment!
