Photography Re-Imagined

One of my images, The Third Bridge, has been accepted into the show Photography Re-Imagined at the Tilt Gallery in Phoenix, AZ and has been awarded 2nd Place! But I’m especially pleased as the juror was Christopher James. Christopher James is an internationally known artist and photographer whose paintings and alternative process images have been exhibited in galleries and museums in this country and abroad. His work has been published and shown extensively, including shows in The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The George Eastman House, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. His book, “The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes” (Delmar, 2001) has received unprecedented critical acclaim, was the winner of The Golden Light Technical Book of the Year award, and has become the standard reference text in alternative process image making. His second, and significantly expanded, edition of “The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes: 2nd Edition” was released in February 2008. Christopher, after 13 years at Harvard University, is currently Professor and Chair of Photography at the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University. The image, quite small at 5″x5″, was printed as a polymer photogravure in an edition of 10 on 11″x14″ Hahnemühle paper. There seems to be something about small prints that some people like, as this has become one of the more popular of my images – not that I’ll ever...

London Darkrooms

It’s been a weird week and one that seemed to revolve around many of the London printers I used to hang out with in the pubs of Shoreditch and Clerkenwell. It’s as if I’ve been in a time warp or an episode of Dr. Who. Now, I’ve just been pointed towards the website of Richard Nicholson who has photographed many of the last remaining professional darkrooms in the city including many of the printers that I mentioned in an earlier post. Maybe it’s because I’m a printer, but I LOVE these images. And you’ve got to love that speaker balancing precariously on Adrian’s 504… Debbie Sears Adrian Ensor Klaus Kalde Mike Spry Roy Snell All images copyright © Richard...

20×200

The sad news about Bill Rowlinson on Friday was preceded by wonderful – but stunning – news from 20×200 on Thursday. 20×200 is a project from Jen Bekman whereby two editions a week are released as inexpensive inkjet prints in three sizes for $20, $200 and $2000. My image that’s currently in the Ornithology show, Bird’s Nest was chosen for a special edition released on Thursday. It went live at 2pm ET, but within minutes both the small and medium sizes had sold out! The original print on which the image is based is available as a hand-pulled photogravure in an edition of 10.
