Opening Reception: Saturday, August 27, 7–9PM
The Image Flow proudly presents the First Annual Alternative Process Photography Exhibition, a group exhibition featuring 35 California artists working with a wide variety of historical and analog photographic printing processes.
Cyanotype, gum bichromate, lumen, palladium, photopolymer gravure, platinum, tintype, Van Dyke, and wet plate collodion processes (along with many multiple-process works) are all represented in this show. Each image printed is often one of a kind due to the nature of working with these non-commercial processes—mixing emulsions, coating materials by hand, and hand-embellishing prints are all customary to alternative process work. The prints are made on a variety of unique materials including handmade watercolor paper, specially prepared aluminum, and silks.
The exhibition was curated from over 200 submitted works from artists living and working across California—from Mill Valley photographer Leanne Hansen to West Hollywood artist Matthew Finley. San Francisco artist and photographer Max Kellenberger has had work shown and published internationally, while newcomers Germán Buenrostro and Jenna Meacham make their Marin County gallery debut.
