|Dates:||Jul 27th, 2019 – Sep 21st, 2019|
|Times:||July 27 - September 27, 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 27, 7-9PM
Albumen prints, Ambrotypes, Bromoils, Chromoskedasic silver prints, Cyanotypes, Emulsion lifts & transfers, Gum Bichromate, Lumens, Mordançages, Photo Intaglio and Photogravure, Platinum Palladium, Salt prints, and Wet Plate Collodions (along with many multiple-process works) are all represented in this show. Each image is often one of a kind due to the nature of working with these non-commercial processes—mixing emulsions and coating materials by hand are customary to alternative process work, and hand-embellishing prints with oils, pastels, embroidery, or copper & silver leaf add additional flourishes to some of these pieces. The images are made using a variety of unique materials including Fine Art papers, fabrics, glass and metal plates, wooden panels, and even marshmallows!
The exhibition is curated from over 300 submissions from photographers living and working throughout the United States—from Kelli Pennington in Portland, Oregon to Bill Franson in Byfield, Massachusetts, along with many California and San Francisco Bay Area photographers.
