Asher Gough
As a photographer, I work primarily through analogue processes. I specialise in black and white darkroom printing. My work varies from documentary style protest photography, to experimental photography exploring my own aphantasia, a condition that means I do not have a visual imagination. My current work around this condition consists of film photographs taken of friends and family, soaked in lemon juice and hand soap, to degrade the images. This corresponds to the way my aphantasia affects my everyday life, resulting in face-blindness and a loss of long term memory. This series has earned me a production bursary from Genesis Printing, which gave me £500 to print and frame my own work professionally. I am fascinated by the analogue process, and my ambition is to become a photography technician, before owning my own darkroom business, developing film and delivering bespoke prints.
