In this age of digital perfection, there is a growing body of artists returning to historical methods to hand-craft photographic images. Alternative photographic processes result in unique images; no two prints can ever be exactly alike. In this exhibit, three distinctly different processes are on view: pinhole prints and cameras, cyanotype prints, and polaroid manipulations.
The pinhole cameras were made by students of Lecturer Russell Krepart in conjunction with his vertical studio class in Fall 2005. All the prints were produced in the School of Architecture's Darkroom. Darkoom membership is available to all currently enrolled architecture school students after attending a training workshop. The VRC offers workshops covering such topics as Cyanotype, Polaroid transfer, and basic black and white printing.
