Mark Nelson, photographer, Master Printmaker and author of Precision Digital Negatives for Silver & Other Alternative Processes will speak about his adventure over the past 15 years as he switched from a professional career in mental health to a new profession as a photographer. He will focus on the factors that influenced him and the choices he made along the way to achieve his own aesthetic vision in his prints. During the presentation, Mark will show both his beautiful Platinum/Palladium and Photopolymer Gravure prints. He will illustrate how these two mediums are able to perfectly express his aesthetic vision and will discuss what he has learned that takes the handcrafted print to its highest level of excellence. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
