LightBox is honored to exhibit Terry Thompson’s “Latent Harmony”, a retrospective collection of Terry‘s lifetime of alternative process work. Terry’s background in photography includes an art education at the legendary School of Visual Arts in N.Y.C., working with artists as diverse as Diane Arbus, Andy Warhol, Vito Acconci, Gary Winogrand and Tad Yamashiro. Graduate work was with the San Francisco Art Institute, with the top West coast artists, including Linda Conner, Wynn Bullock, Pirkle Jones and Jack Fulton. He was one of the first photographic artists to revive the Platinum print process in the 1960’s
“I’ve used the photographic medium to define and explore the truths of existence, devoid of the anthropocentric narrative. This exhibition is a retrospective of those concerns. Never trending, never current, these obscured harmonies of life need one to be “present” to make and “present” to view. I found that the Platinum print to be the most accurate and plastic of the realist processes available in the last 200 years. Other images appear as Platinum/Gum Bichromate when some color is called for.” ~ Terry K. Thompson – 2018
Also opening on this night is a new series of work, “When the Stones Sing”, from the legendary photographer John Wimberley. Last Summer LightBox presented a major show of John’s work, this year John is exhibiting something very different. Having had a career in fine art photography being known for his masterful Fiber Silver Gelatin B&W prints, for the first time in a lifelong career of print making, John’s new series is in color.
“Since 1969 I’ve photographed in black and white. During those forty-nine years I exposed, developed and printed many thousands of large and medium format negatives. But that season of my photography is drawing to a close. As of November 1, 2018, I will no longer accept print orders for any of my black and white images. A new season began about a year ago when I switched to color photography, and my intent is to focus entirely on that medium. On July 14, 2018, the first exhibition of new color work opens at LightBox Photographic Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. These photographs are respectfully dedicated to all First Nation people, past and present; especially those who in ancient times made rock art.” ~John Wimberley
