LightBox Photographic Gallery opens Alternative Visions with an artists’ reception on Saturday, September 14, 2019 from 5-8pm. The prints in Alternative Visions represent a large variety of processes, ranging from cyanotype, gum, platinum/palladium, silver gelatin, Van Dyke brown, carbon transfer, photogravure, wet plate, tintype, ambrotype, lith, casein, chemigram, lumenprint, and wet plate collodion. The handmade print, taken into so many directions, is obviously alive and well.
We are honored to have Christina Z. Anderson, one of the nations’ finest photographic educators as juror for this Exhibit and keynote Speaker of the Symposium
“The alternative process “movement” which began around the 1960s was largely a return to 19th century hand coated processes as an alternative to corporately controlled gelatin silver paper. Today there has been a conflation of gelatin silver, C-prints, 19th century processes, and printmaking into the alternative process genre. Even digital means of image capture are now a part of this practice with some processes such as image transfer or palladium over ink jet which use digital printing in part. The hallmark of the field is that the end result is a hands-on, handmade print.” ~ Christina Z. Anderson
