Art Intersection hosted an opening reception for our first annual juried exhibition of analog photography, Light Sensitive, juried this year by Dr. Rebecca Senf, Norton Family Curator at the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, Arizona. We had many of the artists in attendance, including Jackie Walsh, who came all the way from New Jersey to attend the reception.
We love celebrating the diversity of the photographic medium and there’s plenty of evidence that analog photography is alive and well with forty-six photographers from eighteen different states, exhibiting photographic work using the techniques of gelatin silver, Polaroid, photogravure, c-print, casein platinum/palladium, gum bichromate, salt print, cyanotype, wet plate collodion and van dyke. Art Intersection plans to make Light Sensitive an annual event.
In the east gallery, renowned West Coast photographer, Martha Casanave, is exhibiting her 4” x 5” pinhole camera series, Explorations Along an Imaginary Coastline. The gelatin silver prints depict California’s central coast as an “imaginary coastline” with a mysterious figure in 19th century attire appearing in many of the images. Martha will be visiting Art Intersection April 28-29 to teach a workshop in albumen printing.
