Cath Farr


As a five year old I received a gift of a Kodak Instamatic camera and used it until I was provided with a second hand Yashica 35mm camera ten years later. By then photography and collecting imagery had become a consuming passion! It was a hobby for a long time but recently I showed some of my photographs in an exhibition context and opened my house for Brighton's Festival of Artists Open Houses in 2008. Cath Farr: The Art of Fun was awarded the prize for Best Open House. Importantly I saw my photographs with a new comprehension.

During Brighton Festival 2009 I showed new photographs at Latest Music Bar in an exhibition entitled Status Quo Cancelled and exhibited new photographs at Crunchtime 2010: Art and Global Issues (associate project) in York throughout January and February 2010. 

I have recently completed my Floristry Diploma at Plumpton College. Having grown up surrounded by flowers, (both parents were Florists) I am now fullfilling both my passions. I have a distinct style in both Floristry and Photography as you can see by viewing my creative images and photographs of my floral designs. 

I have also purchased an old B/W enlarger and film with the intention of returning to chemical based processing for a while. I might even print up some of my old photographs. Stay tuned.....
