f.Project is a group of artists, originally formed during 2017 in the Crawford College of Art & Design. Cork Film Centre were simultaneously setting up a darkroom facility to provide support for artists working in analogue photography. The Film Centre facilities are based in Sample Studios, Churchfield.
f.Project is dedicated to experimenting with the analogue photographic processes. The current project members are: Éanna Heavey, Chris Hurley, Evgeniya Martirosyan, Bríanna Ní Léannacháin, Orla O’Byrne, Dori O’Connell, Sophia Santabarbara, and Artem Trofimenko.
In 2018, Cork Film Centre received a loan of vintage camera equipment from the Hermann Marbe collection (courtesy of Jessica Carson), enabling the group to further expand their experimentation in the realm of analogue photography. This collection now forms the basis for a camera lending system accessible for artists, community groups, and members of the public through Cork City Libraries https://www.theslowcameraexchange.com/
f.Project will be exhibiting their new body of work Of Light in Chapel Hill Arts Centre, Macroom, from 30th June to 16th July https://www.chapelhillschoolofart.ie/
