Underexposed

A string of pearls of events and exhibitions along the Hastings/St. Leonards seafront last Friday night showed PhotoHastings in all its creative energy and exuberance. Like an iridescent silver halide print, the seafront positively glowed. From Alexander Brattel’s lively In Conversation at Stade Hall, to the opening of Octet at St Mary in Castle and finally to Norman Road, starting with Bob Mazzer’s truly wonderful Underground and culminating at The Garage for the opening of Underexposed, it was a night when these two towns were anything but underexposed. John Cole followed the creative trail and ended up at the Garage of the Horse and Groom pub to have a look at Underexposed and talk with the artists. Underexposed runs until 30th October.

Lovers, fighters, smokers, workers… and photographers

In case you hadn’t noticed, Hastings is currently saturated with photographic images. From John Cole’s tarpaulin-sized portraits of fishermen hung around the Stade, the ‘Edge’ group show along the footbridge at Hastings station, all the way to Dan Bass’s trestle mounted prints next to St Leonards station, the town is awash with established and developing photographers. HOT’s Erica Smith embraced the Photo Hastings festival and reports back…

The hard life at sea

A local photographer was so inspired by the week he spent on a fishing trawler in the North Sea during his final year at uni that he decided to move back to Hastings in order to pursue his continuing passion to document the fishing industry. Hastings photographer Chris Mammone’s exhibition is one of many PhotoHastings shows currently on display in Hastings and St Leonards, and HOT reporter and photographer John Cole went along to the preview night to speak to Chris about his work.
