4th Annual Alternative Process Photography Exhibition

Juried by: Ann M. Jastrab, Christina Z. Anderson, Unai San Martin, and The Image Flow

July 27 – October 11, 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 27, 7–9PM


The Image Flow proudly presents our 4th Annual Alternative Process Photography Exhibition, a juried exhibition featuring 52 artists working with a wide variety of historical and analog photographic printing processes.

Albumen prints, Ambrotypes, Bromoils, Chromoskedasic silver prints, Cyanotypes, Emulsion lifts & transfers, Gum Bichromate, Lumens, Mordançages, Photo Intaglio and Photogravure, Platinum Palladium, Salt prints, and Wet Plate Collodions (along with many multiple-process works) are all represented in this show. Each image is often one of a kind due to the nature of working with these non-commercial processes—mixing emulsions and coating materials by hand are customary to alternative process work, and hand-embellishing prints with oils, pastels, embroidery, or copper & silver leaf add additional flourishes to some of these pieces. The images are made using a variety of unique materials including Fine Art papers, fabrics, glass and metal plates, wooden panels, and even marshmallows!


The exhibition is curated from over 300 submissions from photographers living and working throughout the United States—from Kelli Pennington in Portland, Oregon to Bill Franson in Byfield, Massachusetts, along with many California and San Francisco Bay Area photographers.


The 4th Annual Alternative Process Photography Exhibition features work by: Xiaodan Bai, Francis Baker, Allan Barnes, Lesley Nowlin Blessing, Diana Bloomfield, Emma Boardman, Sally Bousquet, Katie Burianek, Susan Chainey, Kimberly Chiaris, Dana Christensen, Seth Adam Cook, Ellen Davis, Barbara Dombach, Rory Earnshaw, Nathan Ely, Alyssa Eustaquio, Bill Franson, Karl French, Rheana Gardner, J. M. Golding, Lloyd Greene, Barbara Hazen, Jodie Hooker, Karen Hymer, Laura James, Robert Levy, Jing LinXiaopeng Liu, Jocelyn Mathewes, Lloyd Matthews, Molly McCall, Lou McCorkle, Ann Mitchell, Eben Ostby, Kelli Pennington, Michael Puff, Kathryn Reichert, Holly Roberts, Loren Roberts, Caroline Savage, John Foxe Sheets, Sara Silks, Amanda Tomlin, Cara Lee Wade, Laura Alice Watt, Jane Wiley, Wilton Wong, Jiheng Yan, Daren You, Yelena Zhavoronkova, and Ryan Zoghlin.

James Clift: Theaters Off Market

January – December, 2019

The open spaces and sidewalks of downtown San Francisco are the stage.  The architectural grandeur of its buildings frame the set.  Amidst the congestion and chaos, unknowing characters step into the spotlight, into my scene. – James Clift
Taken just off Market Street in SOMA and downtown San Francisco between 2016–2018, select images from James Clift’s street photography series Theaters Off Market will be on display on the back wall at The Image Flow beginning January 19.
