APERTURES

Photography. Around the year 1800 Thomas Wedgewood made the first known attempt to create permanent pictures by capturing images on material coated with a light sensitive substance. Since then photography has developed its own language of light. Aperture, the opening by which light enters the camera, easily became the theme for our inaugural online gallery. The subject was up to you and the process was up to you, anything goes. To all who submitted, thank you for sharing your vision.
