The 'Corita' effect..

The art class pictures of Francis Elizabeth Kent, aka Sister Corita & her fellow 'Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary', have always fascinated me.  Part of my pleasure is gleaned from their seemingly laid back attitude to printing in a visually formal environment, impeccably attired in their habits.  Such spirit resonates from these images.  They popped to mind regularly whilst enjoying the meandering nature of creativity & random conversation at last weekends 'photoshop by hand' workshops. They took place in the former board rooms of Yorkshire brewery Tetleys Head Quarters in Hunslet, Leeds, now home of contemporary gallery space, The Tetley.

And as Lydia Burgess commented.. who needs Photoshop...?!
