Who We Are
ABOUT THE GALLERY
White Box is a community art gallery space for selected artists to show their work. It is intended as a focus of interest for the people of Blackheath and for the wider world of art enthusiasts. We select a broad spectrum of art practices, something different from exhibition to exhibition, by committed artists. Prints, sculpture, painting, ceramics, performance and photographic works have all been hosted at White Box. The Gallery is run by Frances and Graham High who are themselves practising artists.

Rado Klose considers that "photography is the act of framing (we avoid the word art at all times). Consider all those forms of graphic expression that start with a sheet of paper, or a canvas, or an etching plate, or a lithographic stone, your basic tabula rasa, nothing exists until you start making marks of some sort. The action is one of addition. Photography is an act of subtraction. It starts with something, the world through which we move and which moves around us. The frame is the device that allows us to select those parts of it which we think may be worthy of attention. So that is the primary decision. (Time is of course important but not equally so in all photographs) The relationship of the frame to what it contains and the visual rhythms it establishes are, for me, the fascinating grammar of photography. In pursuance of the theme of framing I persuaded myself I should make all the frames for the exhibition."
