Workshop: Wet Plate Photograms with S. Gayle Stevens

Explore the elemental fun of photograms while learning wet plate collodion photography techniques in this full-day, hands-on workshop with S. Gayle Stevens.

Workshop participants will learn the 19th century process of wet plate collodion through the creation of their own individual photograms, camera-less images made by placing objects on photo-sensitized material. Students will create series of 2×2”, 3×3”, and 4×4” plates, going larger as day progresses and they learn to effectively pour plates. Each participant should bring in a selection of small objects for use as their photogram subjects.

The class will collectively create a large collaborative piece, which will be displayed at the PhotoWALK at the Ogden Museum on December 14. Participants can take home their individual plates at the close of the event on Friday evening.

This workshop is presented in partnership with Bostick & Sullivan and Xavier University.

The element uranium is generally thought of today in connection with nuclear reactors or atomic bombs, but in the 19th century and the early part of the 20th century it played a significant role in photography. Most often it was used as a toner, producing red-brown tones on silver prints and blue, green and red tones on platinum prints. Students will explore the possibility of this salt exclusively and in combination with other precious metals. Some consider this the ‘holy grail of obscure alternative photography’. Hosted at the Penumbra Foundation.

The Collodio-Chloride printing out process was a major innovation with contributions from a multitude of innovators.  The use of collodion on paper was a Talbot innovation in 1854, was in general commercial use in 1867 by Obernetter and was mass produced up to the 1930’s.  This process is extremely stable, easy to coat and creates an extremely fine detailed image.  It is naturally married to those wanting to print collodion negatives, film negatives, and digital negatives.

Exhibition: Instant085 | Fight Like A Girl

  • Circolo Aternino of Pescara (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
locandina square.jpg

Instant 085 is an ongoing exhibition series dedicated to showcasing new artist trends in contemporary photography. Based on their prior success of featuring exclusively  instant photography in 2016 and and exclusively analog photography in 2017, Instant 085 is pleased to announce that this year's exhibition is titled “Fight Like a Girl”. The 2018 edition of Instant 085 will exhibit 15+ italian female photographers in the historical location of the Circolo Aternino of Pescara, in Italy.

“Fight Like a Girl” aims to bring a new generation of photographers to the forefront of our collective consciousness and explore the ways photography has become an increasingly expressive tool for women in the modern world. Photography has enabled these artists to investigate themselves and their role in society by not only giving them a voice, but by giving them 1000 words in the form of each one of their photographs that show how loud they can really be, in a society that wants them weak and defenseless. This exhibition will dig through the folds of our reality and investigate the female body in its purest and most intimate forms. The artists’ work shown was created by using their own bodies, often strangled and distorted, to create unique rule-breaking landscapes with a pure vision of existential dignity. These women can not be controlled by societal norms and neither should you.

In addition to showing these 15 artists’ photographs, Instant 085 is proud to eliminate the distance between you and the actual artwork. During this exhibition you will be allowed to experience these photographs with all of your senses including touching them! There will be no frames, glass, or mattes during this event and you are welcomed to interact with this work. Instant 085 hopes to short circuit your brain and break the normals of photographic exhibitions.

Join Instant 085 for three days of wonderful female-centric photography at the Circolo Aternino of Pescara in Italy from November 2nd to the 4th of 2018.

Event: Glass Key Photo's 2018 Zine Fest

Known amongst analog photography buffs for its rare cameras and equipment, Glass Key Photo in San Fransicso will be hosting their second Zine Fest on October 27th, 2018! Join this thriving analog photography store as they provide a place for local artists to gather and sell their ‘zines and photobooks! This event will be a lot of fun and be a great networking event for photographers across the bay area. The event will take place from Noon to 6pm, so mark your calendars! This will be an event you don’t want to miss!

About Glass Key Photo:

Glass Key Photo is one of San Fransicos last remaining analog photography stores that still stock antique and new cameras, a diverse film selection, and have one of the most knowledge staffs in the area. Staffed by owners Matt Osborne and Gordon Szet, this shop welcomes you to come check out their store, chat analog photography, and drink an ice cold root beer while you are at it!

Nuala Sawyer from the SF Weekly describes the store back in May 2017: “The diversity of the crowds that enter Glass Key speaks to its wide array of stock — disposable black-and-white film cameras sit across the room from large-format, wet-plate cameras from the 1800s — but also to the vibe of the place. Someone who thinks they know it all can come in and be politely schooled by Szeto and Osborne, but neither are ever too high-and-mighty not to put down something they’re working on in order to show a teenage girl how to work their grandfather’s old Rollei. It’s a friendly neighborhood camera shop, and even as it becomes more of a destination for photographers across the city, it retains its charm”

About the Museum:
The Santa Paula Art Museum features rotating exhibitions of regional art, educational programming for children and adults, artist talks and demonstrations, musical performances, a gift shop, and more. The Museum's permanent collection includes over 200 historical and contemporary works of art. The Santa Paula Art Museum is also in part the repository and exhibition hall for the Santa Paula civic art collection. This extraordinary assemblage is composed of nearly 300 award-winning entries from the annual Santa Paula Art Show begun in 1937. The Museum is housed within the historic Limoneira Building. Built in 1924, the classic two-story structure was designed by the famed local architect Roy Wilson, Sr. to accommodate the offices of the Limoneira Company. The architectural details of the exterior of the building hint at the interior's handsome wood paneling, soaring windows, and stunning atrium. Through a lease agreement with the Limoneira Company, their former headquarters was renovated and reopened as the Santa Paula Art Museum in 2010. The slideshow and video below reveal the remarkable story of how the local landmark was transformed from a 20th century office space to a 21st century art museum.

Convention: Porto Photo Fest

Porto Photo Fest features photographers who are not only world-class photographers in their specialized fields, they are also world-class educators who enable you to tap into their knowledge, experience and skills. They meet you at your level and help you achieve your photography goals. As a creator, you’ll gain more inspiration and insights from each of these accomplished professional instructors than from anything you’ll find online.

This festival is an experience that you can’t get anywhere else in the world. Our workshops are created and developed especially for Porto, a UNESCO world heritage center. Porto is like nowhere else in Europe. There are stories to be told from every setting, and locals who want to tell you about their city. Every street you walk down holds a new view, allowing endless inspiring backdrops: The face of the city changes from sunrise right into the night, where texture, light and design meet the magic of Porto. This is the only place a photographer would want to be.

"I said last year this is the festival that could change your life and I had the huge privilege of seeing that change for the attendees last year. I saw how the interactions with instructors changed peoples working methods, practises and craft for life. I can’t wait to see the change Porto Photo Fest 2018 could bring for you". - Anna Gunn, Festival Director & Tamer of Dragons

Convention Details: 
This convention will have paid workshops, portfolio reviews, photo walks, master classes, and some free events. Prices vary per event. Though this not an analog only event, there will be exhibitions of analog photography including one by Photos de Femmes which includes work by Carmen de Vos, Anne Silver and Renėe Jacobs, among others.

Exhibition: "Alchemy" - Works by Garry Fabian Miller, Pierre Cordier and Nadezda Nikolova-Kratzer
Oct

to Nov 10

Exhibition: "Alchemy" - Works by Garry Fabian Miller, Pierre Cordier and Nadezda Nikolova-Kratzer

Alchemy presents three generations of camera-less photography: Pierre Cordier made his first chemigram in 1956, Garry Fabian Miller began his darkroom era in 1984, and Nadezda Nikolova-Kratzer is making her London gallery debut with this exhibition. Just as alchemists experiment in both chemistry and spirituality, these artists deeply consider the chemical and physical properties of their mediums while simultaneously meditating on the human condition, giving form and concept equal weight.

Garry Fabian Miller’s dye-destruction Cibachrome prints are part of a reflective process, growing out of the artist’s connection to the light and landscape that surrounds his Dartmoor studio. Fabian Miller uses coloured oils and water in long exposures that last between one and fifteen hours to make abstract, colour-saturated works. Since Cibachrome is no longer produced, Fabian Miller is using his remaining stock to create work that celebrates the end of his medium.

In contrast to Fabian Miller’s darkroom process, Pierre Cordier creates his chemigrams in full light, manipulated with developer, fixer, and localising products. The localising products are readily available household items such as nail varnish, eggs, glue, and honey, again differing from Fabian Miller’s use of a now-rare material. Cordier’s application of the localising products is almost painterly, though he resists categorising chemigrams as either painting or photography.

Nadezda Nikolova-Krazter’s wet plate collodion process likewise walks the line between painting and photography. While wet plate collodion is one of the oldest photographic processes, she experiments with the medium in the darkroom by dabbing and brushing the chemistry onto the plates. Multiple horizon lines are often at play in her work, each line figuratively representing “the limits of our mental perceptions, which are being broadened.”

All three artists engage with their mediums through a thoughtful respect for the unpredictable aspects of controlled experimentation. As Fabian Miller’s remaining sheets of Cibachrome paper pass their expiry date, he does not know when the chemistry of the paper will fail or when he will make his final print. In recent works, he uses flames to accentuate the destruction of the chemicals. For Cordier, there is “an element of uncontrollable chance” in the physical and chemical transformations that take place to create a chemigram. And Nikolova-Kratzer describes her process as a negotiation with the chemistry: “The chemistry has a say in the final image.”

Exhibition: Jon Crispin - American Demographics

  • Hope & Feathers Framing and Printing (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This is the first time these hand-colored silver gelatin prints by acclaimed Pelham photographer Jon Crispin have been exhibited. The photographs date from the mid-1970s to the mid-90s, and were published in the 1980-90s in the now-defunct American Demographics Magazine (a monthly magazine about marketing and consumer trends). Most of the images were shot in the US, some in Europe - rather than working on assignment, photographs from Jon's extensive personal archive were selected to illustrate stories in the magazine. The 11"x14" prints were meticulously hand-colored by artist Robby Aceto, making them one-of-a-kind works of art, and unique modern examples of the almost-disappeared craft of hand coloring. There will be an opening reception Thursday, October 4th, 5:00-8:00pm, during Amherst Arts Night Plus and an artist talk with Jon Crispin Saturday, October 20th, 4:30-7:00pm.

About Jon Crispin:

Jon has been working as a photographer since 1974, dividing his time between freelance assignments and documentary projects. Freelance work includes national publications, higher education, and non-profits. His documentary projects include exhibitions and publications concerning social and rural topics in New York State: 19th-century state insane asylums, state prisons, rural living conditions, county fairground architecture, agriculture, and food and nutrition programs for the needy. In the past few years, he has photographed over 300 plywood panels that had lined the Fulton Street area overlooking Ground Zero at the site of the World Trade Center (and over 100 panels from Liberty Island). Jon is perhaps best known for the "Willard Suitcases" project - a poignant documentation of suitcases left behind by patients at the Willard Asylum in upstate NY.

About Rudi Amedeus Blondia:
Rudi Amedeus Blondia is a fine art photographer from Belgium, now living in Fremont, CA, whose recent focus has been on artistic nudes and portraits using expired large format Polaroid films. Blondia takes his images, using darkroom processes to craft and mold the images, until he relives the feeling and emotions of the shoot itself. His style is minimalistic, creating space between his subjects and the background, easing the viewer into the story of his picture. His work, saturated with emotion and wonder, documents each subject's beauty, complexity, uniqueness, and intimacy. His series of 8x10 Polaroid portraits explores a fascination with how faces are presented and how emotions are conveyed, especially in the often complex relationship of model and photographer, shifting through feelings, reflections, projections, and illuminations of heart and soul.

Exhibition: "Knuckle" - The Work of Solomon Bennett

 See more of Solomon Bennett's work Here!

See more of Solomon Bennett's work Here!

We begin our Exhibition Season with the work of Mixed Media Artist Solomon Bennett:

“KNUCKLE” is a digital and analogue, photo and video installation. It is comprised of numerous photo pieces that highlight men from various backgrounds in the midst of behavior that, in some way or another, exemplifies my idea of masculinity through a framework of freedom.

The artist explains: "These photos speak to what masculinity means to me while the video being projected highlights my personal influences that constructed my own idea of manhood. I feel like I have a lot to say about the state of the world as a result of men's actions and emotions and most of it has to do with our (as people) warped sense of value . As a result, I want to show what I value as a man via these portraits".

The artist will have zine's with extra included inside for sale for just $3.00! They include an artist statement, stickers, and gum! There will be beverages at this event! So bring your party hat!
