Intervals: Photography in Flux
Intervals: Photography in Flux, Capture Photography Exhibition 2016, March 31st - April 9th, 2016 South Main Gallery SoMa, 279 East 6th Avenue Vancouver, BC Canada This exhibition is part of the international Capture Photography Exhibition and is about the transitory nature of photography. Every image, depending on time, location, viewer, and context, is constantly in transition. Photographers create meaning that fluctuates in the intervals between their images—whether it be the intervals between the shutter opening and closing, the intervals between the images on the wall, the interval between the image and the material on which it is presented, or the interval between the meaning that arises and changes in the viewer as they move between images. Intervals presents the work of seven contemporary photographers based in Vancouver, Victoria, Los Angeles, Honolulu, and Iran who explore the rhythms and tension of their geographical, social, and psychological landscapes.
LUMENS: experimental photography
Johnson City, Texas, 11 March - 16 May
A feast of lumen prints are showcased in the newly opened Salon at A Smith Gallery in Johnson City, Texas. Lumen, an exhibition showcasing this feast of alternative photography, includes Cathy’s Orchid, a digital print made from a handmade negative created by using a Lumen Print process. The exhibition dates are 11 March to 16 May. Two receptions will be held: 25 March and 30 April (4 – 7 pm). An exhibition catalogue available from Blurb is forthcoming.
Lumen prints are photograms made by a contact print process using organic materials that leave traces and shadows on photosensitive surfaces. These unique prints are made without a camera or darkroom enlarger. These materials transmit enzymes that interact with the surface of the paper, leaving X-rays like marks of both their shapes and interiors. Lumen prints on sheet film can be scanned and processed as digital prints. Artists experimenting with this process include Jerry Burchfield, Adam Fuss and the artists showing work in Lumen.
