NH Seacoast Analog Photography Group Exhibit – Film Photography Lives! – February 3rd to March 25th, 2018
I’m very pleased to be participating in the New Hampshire Seacoast Analog Photography Group Exhibit: Film Photography Lives!
Opening for the group exhibit is on Saturday, February 3, 2018 at 2 to 4pm in the main gallery at Camera Commons in Dover, New Hampshire. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
I’ll be exhibiting four images from an ongoing body of work photographing Revolutionary War living history reenactors in New England.
Throughout the summer months, reenactors and their families travel to historic sites, forts and battlegrounds around New England to recreate in great detail the sights and sounds of 18th century life and warfare. They put a tremendous amount of time and effort into portraying and honoring the people who fought on both sides during the American Revolution. My work highlights some of these reenactors as they seek to educate and inform the public about our nation’s past. The entire project is photographed on black and white film and selected images printed in my darkroom. All the film processing and printing I do by hand, with the images thiocarbamide and selenium toned for archival permanance on fiber paper.
The exhibit is on display through February until March 25th, 2018.
