LightBox Photographic Gallery will host the artists’ opening reception of “Extending Tradition: Large Format on Saturday, May 12th, from 5-8pm. pm. Thirty Photographers from around the world will show work in this exhibit celebrating the traditional approach and beauty of large format film photography.
Extending Tradition: Large Format features work from photographers who continue the tradition of using large format film or plates, generally 4 x 5 inches and larger. The call went out for work from photographers who use large format film or plates and who print in any analog process. One image each from 30 individual photographers is shown in the exhibit with work printed in many unique analog processes giving recognition to those whose interest and talent follow the masterful path of traditional large format photography.
