Richard Renaldi 
His Touching Strangers series has a unique take on the intimacy between two individuals, who have never met, but appear to be cohesive in the photograph through invitation of chance.

experimental processes and possibilities

Cameraless photographer by Alison Rossiter
A darkroom player who uses expired photographic papers from the 19th & 20th century to make pictures. Rossiter employs two processes in her work, time and darkroom play. She seeks out in boxes of expired photographic papers latent images left behind- fingerprints, mold, light leaks etc. – that can only be made by time. Or she selectively develops photographic papers by dipping and pouring, allowing the chemistry to make marks and shapes.

Chemical creations by Mariah Robertson

Robertson’s image making process is all about chemical reactions and chance on photographic paper, led by instinct and informed by her formal experiences in the darkroom. The resulting abstractions are the result of experiments with darkroom chemistry, temperature and time (15hrs per 100′ roll).

Alchemical quest of Ilan Wolff

Wolff’s series 4-Elements uses light (obviously) and the elements air, fire, water and earth. Heat for fire and earth, cold for water and for air the classic technique employing light energy. The images in his 4-Elements series record the chemical interactions that take place when photographic paper is subjected to an element as well as reveal a sensation of the element.

Rossiter, Robertson and Wolff all use performance and chance in combination with darkroom techniques in the processes of their work.

My Interest: Framing, distortion, perception, and documentation.

Uta Barth 

“I am interested in the conventions of picture-making, in the desire to picture the world and in our relationship, our continual love for and fascination with pictures.”

  • Barth’s work is so much about seeing and subverting traditional perceptions of photography as she moves away from subject matter.
  • Her work becomes about observing and the act of looking.
