We are excited to announce that our 2nd online group exhibition, Back to the Future: Historic Processes in the Modern World, will be curated by Analog Forever writer and curator Niniane Kelley! We are currently seeking submissions in response to the following prompt.

Niniane Kelley writes: For this exhibition we are looking all the way back to the first decades of photo history for our inspiration, the days when making potions was a vital part of your photographic magic. We invite you to submit two images made with an historic photographic process*, the best of which will be showcased in an online show by Analog Forever writer and curator Niniane Kelley, which will go live on our website November 19, 2018. Please follow the directions below to complete your submission. Good luck!

*This show is open to processes that were developed PRIOR to 1874 (which marks the first commercial availability of gelatin silver paper). Your final image should be in one of these processes, but your negatives may be produced with contemporary film or digital techniques.

About the Curator


Niniane Kelley is a fine art photographer living and working in San Francisco and Lake County, California. A native of the Bay Area, she is a San Jose State University graduate, earning a BFA in Photography in 2008.

Drawn to photography for both the immediacy of the image making process and the intrinsic alchemy of the darkroom ritual, she crafts the majority of her imagery using traditional 19th century processes which give each piece its own unique character. 

After generating an extensive portfolio working with the human form, she emerged from the sequestered studio environment and began to focus on the quiet beauty of the North State rural landscape. Embracing photography’s implied narrative structure, much of her current work functions as a form of autobiography, chronicling her frequent, unencumbered explorations of Northern California’s pastoral and largely unpopulated interior.

But never one to cease experimentation, she is also simultaneously developing new complimentary bodies of work using Polaroid and plastic cameras to bring fresh perspective to both her figure and landscape work.

In addition to producing photographic images, Kelley is also extensively involved in alternative processes education and research. Often teaching workshops in the Bay Area and surrounding environs, she most recently worked as a photographer and manager at San Francisco’s tintype portrait studio, Photobooth.
