    'Virtual' Exhibition News: Hidden Works | Charlie Waite at BoshamGallery.com
    Featuring an array of unseen work by Charlie Waite, this exhibition at Bosham Gallery celebrates his style and love of the natural world. You can check out more on the website including a video preview of the exhibition online.
    "Until the announcement of my Hidden Works exhibition I have deeply missed the almost mystical experience of black and white hand printing in my darkroom. Now however I have immersed myself once again, and it is very special because the whole process of interpreting the negative has always been sacred to me. With much sentiment I have revisited works I created some 40 years ago and joyfully looked back at the decades which were spent making silver gelatin prints in the darkroom. It is truly like coming home."  Charlie Waite, 2020"
