In February 2016, The Old Shoe Factory launched its inaugural exhibition of photos by E M Campbell. Out Of Darkness was an atmospheric, myopic and inquisitive show whose specially printed photos and audiovisual installation was housed in this new intimate artspace.  The show combined multi scale prints alongside light projections set amongst Ralph Cumbers (AKA Bass Clef) soundscapes.  Esther’s eye for character and her acute sense of place sought to envelope the viewers as they fell into striking and richly observed pictures - 'a collection of dreamy documentary photographs with a sense of the pastoral rubbing close to inner city peopled portraits and desolate urban edgelands'.  All real - and all smoke and mirrors.
