In Light We Trust
at Walker’s Point Center for the Arts
April 1 – May 14, 2016
Opening reception: Friday, April 1, 5–9 pm.
Artist Talk: Friday, April 15, 6 pm (Gallery Night)
In Light We Trust, an alternative and analog photography exhibition, features artists Carrisa Heinrichs, F. Martin Morante, Hal Rammel and Vicki Reed.
This artist collective baring the same name, In Light We Trust, remains true to the hands-on experimentation essential to the discovery of photography itself. The riches of these long lost and rediscovered techniques remind us that there are many ways to see the world, to celebrate its shapes and places and light.
While digital technology at times plays a minor role in this work, this exhibition will focus on the many fresh possibilities remaining in the realm of analog photography. The various processes include pinhole , cyanotypes, lumen prints, Van Dyke, CMY gum bichromate and palladium prints, and some cameraless processes like photograms and cliché verre.
Addition to the artwork, artists will display their homemade pinhole cameras and other image capturing mechanisms.
