Light Sensitive 2016 – Celebrating Images from the Darkroom

A Juried Exhibition Celebrating Images from the Darkroom

Art Intersection presents our fifth annual Light Sensitive exhibition in the North and South Galleries. We are honored to have writer, photographer and teacher, Susan Burnstine, as the juror of this year’s exhibition.

Light Sensitive, our signature juried exhibition, celebrates the art of creating handmade images using traditional photographic printmaking processes. Work this year comes from national and international artists and includes cyanotype, gelatin silver, gum bichromate, photogravure, wet plate collodion tintype, and many other traditional and experimental printing processes.

The Art Intersection curatorial staff will select three artists from Light Sensitive to show additional work in the (re)View exhibition running from December 13, 2016 to January 7. 2017.

About the Juror
Susan Burnstine is an award winning fine art and commercial photographer originally from Chicago now based in Los Angeles. Susan is represented in galleries across the world, widely published throughout the globe, teaches workshops internationally and has also written for several photography magazines, including a monthly column for Black and White Photography Magazine (UK).

You can read more about Susan on her website, SusanBurnstine.com.

Juror Statement
It was a great honor to act as juror for the fifth annual Light Sensitive exhibition. This year’s exhibit pays tribute to seventy-­‐five images created by forty-­‐six artists who used an impressive variety of traditional and handmade photographic print making processes, including; gelatin silver, wet plate collodion tintypes, ambrotype, gum prints, cyanotype, platinum/palladium, kallitype, vandyke, lumen, photogravure, and silvertone.

As we are at a unique crossroads in photographic history, a good deal of applause tends to focus on instant gratification images created and printed within the digital realm. Whether shot with a cameraphone, digital point and shoot or DSLR, processing software such as Photoshop and a variety of apps have become the status quo. Fortunately, there are many craftsmen who desire to create handmade prints and objects that require a great deal of patience and skill.

Selecting just seventy-­‐five images proved to be a difficult challenge as there was an impressive collection submitted. I applaud all of the accepted artists and congratulate every artist who took a leap of faith and submitted.
