Bostick & Sullivan’s First Call for Entry

The Hand Made Photograph: Contemporary Photographers Working in Historic Processes

This exhibition will feature contemporary photographers making photographs the way they were made in the 19th Century. The photographs are hand crafted using emulsions created from metals such as platinum, palladium, silver, and gold. The emulsions are hand applied to fine art paper and exposed in sunlight to produce unique prints. Also, the tintype photograph originally produced during the Civil War Era is made from silver bonded to metal and now interpreted by 21st century photographers.
