Vision21 PhotoRenga

Bethan, Joseph, Luke, Lana, George, Oliver and Rabeela produced a series of PhotoRengas in a summer workshop at the stunning Insole Court in Llandaff on 10th August 2017. The workshop was organised by Vision 21.

The group started from one the workshop spaces overlooking the courtyard, splitting up in pairs or individually and taking series of photographs. After reviewing the images, one image from each pair's camera was chosen and passed on to another in the group. This image was used as the source or inspiration to produce a new set of photographs from which one image was selected to be passed on to the next person in the group, and so on...

The PhotoRengas are inspired by an ancient, courtly form of Japanese poetry, in which sequences of haiku construct complex and profound poems. The aim of the PhotoRenga project is to produce a series of short, collective visual poems - each one unique to their creators.

The workshops have previously been hosted by g39 gallery in Cardiff, madeinroath, The Hanbury Road Gallery in Bargoed, Rookwood Hospital in Llandaff and Ffotogallery in Penarth.
