Studies in the Reactions of Silver and Light Exhibit 2016
We are pleased to have the opportunity to showcase our fine art work at the Hearst Center this winter.
The exhibit features the hand-printed, black and white photography that we have been working on for the last few years. If you think that you have seen it all from us, this show may surprise you because we have a number of pieces that are previously unreleased.
These are straight film-to-paper photographs (no digital imagery here) and if you haven’t seen a real photograph in person recently, this is an exhibit you will not want to miss!

The Exhibit in Print
We have recreated a retrospective magazine for this exhibit. It is on premium matte paper with a professional binding.
All of the photographs from this exhibit are included in the 44-page spread and this is just Volume No. 1. Our intent is that this is a traveling exhibit and that new photographs will be added so the show is completely different at each gallery.
