Dark Silver: Work in progress 2016
Join us on December 9, 6-9PM for an open studio featuring work in progress from the Dark Silver portrait series. Selected large scale prints will be on display from some of this past years sessions. Hours are by appointment only for the remainder of December.
Dark Silver is a project devoted to creating traditional black and white photographic portraits. The portrait sessions are done with large or medium format cameras, and result in beautiful, one of a kind silver gelatin negatives and prints, using a real darkroom. The process is slower and less “perfect” than modern digital imaging, but the process informs the aesthetic: rich silver-based images where time and light are carefully measured and refracted through the lens onto the film. Photographs are printed with old, mechanical enlargers and hand processed in the dark room, resulting in unique, one of a kind prints which will last generations.
