Exposures: Explorations of Darkroom Printing
Work by Megan Fu, Adam Jost, Yamini Krishnan, Javier Alejandro Masis, Nina Petelina and Julia Sokol
A black and white photograph is a sheet of paper tinted with shades of gray. Yet, despite the simplicity of the medium, the manifestations it offers are virtually limitless. In this group show, we explore some of these possibilities through variations of the developing and printing process. Experimenting with everything from subject matter and composition to film, paper, and exposure, each photographer is guided by his or her preferences and experiences.
Megan Fu and Yamini Krishnan capture the beauty in elements of our day-to-day lives that go unnoticed, each with her own unique approach. Adam Jost focuses on abstract shapes in natural and man-made landscapes, particularly where the two meet. Julia Sokolcaptures the ways in which light shapes our surroundings. Nina Petelina demonstrates how overlaying multiple images on the same photograph adds detail and strengthens the idea of the photograph. Javier Alejandro Masis explores the nature of perception and portraiture.
