"As photographers and artists we explore themes relating to 'drawing with light' and being collective. We experiment with a wide range of techniques and processes. For this exhibition we are presenting a selection of works along our path of discovery. Working in the darkroom with chemicals and liquids is a uniquely tactile activity, and sometimes the art reveals itself through the actual process. We often get surprising results from chemical experiments that drive us forward. We can shoot a roll of film and then discard the majority in the quest for the 'final print', but what happens to all those other unseen images that continue to exist in a forgotten netherworld?" - The Gate Darkroom, April 2022

They offer membership, courses and sessional use.
