ME 40 ONE by Yvette Marthell
(Click on image for larger view)

Yvette Jessica Marthell says of her work, "Each one of us are a unique body filled with generational experiences and new adventures that unfold before our eyes.

Every encounter, every love, every heartbreak, every failure, and every accomplishment, they shape and mold us, accenting the possibility of who we may become.

Over the course of the past five years, I had been working on a long term photographic project documenting through portraiture the story of Travis, transitioning from female to male. My current body of work is an internal exploration of my family and self. With the recent lost of my grandmother to Alzheimer's, my work has shifted from an external exploration of self and identity to an internal exploration. 

I have always struggled with my body. What is a body but just a vessel for the soul? These lifesize cyanotype are impressions of the truth, remnants of the internal battle I have always faced. They are my visual dialogue of the struggle of acceptance. The beauty of the body, my body in a world that has dictated to me that the way I look is the way I am valued. Through the medium of photography, I created lifesize cyanotypes, a visual discourse of what is, “Me at 40.”

THAT LUMBERED ALL THE WAY... by Tracie Marie Lee
collodion, archival pigment print
(Click on image for larger view)


MY OWN JOURNEY FOLLOWS NO SUCH LINEAR NARRATIVE. IT STARTED THE MOMENT I FOUND THE PHOTOGRAPH BUT HAS MEANDERED EVER SINCE, THROUGH UNCHARTED RESEARCH AND TO NO OBVIOUS DESTINATION.

-TACITA DEAN,Girl Stowaway, 1994

Tracie Marie Lee says, "In this body of work I am appropriating slivers of images, text, and artifacts from the familial archive.

There is an obstructed rationale of what a photograph is and does, as well as a displacement of the contexts of photographic processes. Incorporating multiple image-making properties and practices, the process of how we contextualize a photograph's objectness and our associations in relationship to photographic material is exposed. The original content, the index, becomes secondary - taking its unaccustomed place on the peripheral of significance. Distinct passageways emerge and are found within the distillation of expectations and longings attached to any familial or institutional space."


Lee is a graduate of the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington, D.C., with a BFA in Fine Art Photography, as well as a Master in Fine Arts graduate with an MFA in Photography and Integrated Media from Lesley University College of Art & Design in Cambridge, MA.                                     

She is also the owner and photographer of Thread Photography - Fine Art Weddings.

In her work she is interested in the implications and consequences of the Snapshot and the Constructed Image on memory construction and preservation. The compulsion to excavate and curate leads to finding new methods of holding onto brief, constantly changing realities, as well as confronting her own tendencies and obsessive drive to collect, as a process of examining loss.

Each individual work incorporates alternative processes, such as the kallitype and collodion, as well as various methods of collage. These mediums string together disparate images and artifacts to create an entirely new, complex image.

The success of the Archive represents only half of the material – the half that has survived. The matter lays somewhere in between what is present and what is missing. Perhaps these instances are the keys – the markers connecting bodies and identities, generations and histories; the physical indication of an unidentified connection.

LEAVES by Theresa Tarara
(Click on image for larger view)

Theresa Tarara says of her series, ' Botanicals, 2017', "I made these botanical images using the gum bichromate method of photography.

Having taken workshops to explore different nineteenth century photo print processes (albumen, van dyke, wet plate collodian, platinum/palladium, salt printing,) which produce beautiful one of a kind imagery that also involve labor intensive steps, time and patience, I chose to focus on the three color gum bichromate process.

Using pigment water colors to make an image takes me back to college when I considered learning how to paint but could not decide between studio arts and photography. Working in a darkroom narrowed the focus and anything photography related including collecting cameras, developing my own film and prints became my path. Gum printing is so beautiful when it works. 

The task of mastering gum is never an easy notion or even a need for me however finding an equilibrium has been a goal.  As time goes on, I am more comfortable making prints and accepting and learning from the mistakes.

The gum imagery I have been fortunate enough to work on in a beautiful and fully equipped lab at Artintersection in Gilbert Arizona leads me to believe I have found a strong, comfortable niche.  I am greatly surprised and excited to make such a soft and gorgeous group of images that I hope will pique the interest of those that love the art of lost methods from the early days of the invention of photography. Gum’s burgeoning colors and all abound especially when my lens focuses on botanicals. 

Fascinated by the form of the magnolia I wanted to make pictures of them for a few reasons, one as an homage to Imogen Cunningham’s work. She is an inspiration ever since first seeing her pictorial style and sculptural images in art history books. 

My desire for a kind of photograph leans toward dream like, in this competition, that of botanicals I am not familiar with, cotton and the magnolia flower I happily discovered growing in Arizona. Possessing these plants in my kitchen in vases I am an explorer and I want to touch. As light filters through the mag’s large white tepals and petals, I found the bloom surface as smooth as it looks.

The cotton plant is harsh and sharp except for the fluffy fibers, amazing and natural having arisen from a seed growing in the earth, harvested and used to make the threads for my clothing and bed sheets my skin touches each day. Nature is intelligent.

Prepping the image for gum printing process takes time and experimentation with chemistry, digital negative curves, exposure, pigment tinkering and then sometimes its back to square one. So, patience is required.The softness in form and color of a good print outcome means the world to me at the same time symbolically unfurling, from a harsh reality of what life throws at you, a calm reminder to slow down, think gently, and appreciate the strange and unusual with open arms. 

Collecting finished gum prints and looking them over I appreciate the random and planned , successes and not so great ones because you see I am enjoying a process.

Showing my work in competitions gives me such a boost in my love of me in this medium I wish there were more hours in the day to accommodate all I  hope to do in making more art. Thinking, inspiration and doing, allowing an audience to interpret takes time, love, no fear, and a commitment. Gum printing, all art making is made up of that.

On another note of utmost respect about my draw to the cotton and magnolia forms,  is that of the Southern United States and the stain of human slavery.  I do not want to forget what pain ensues against the backdrop of these two plants long ago and still today. Black Lives Matter.

Contemplating the past plays a large part in how I create my work, learning about methods and manners and people’s lives where in which to eek out an existence in life with what we are given propels us forward no matter what, with a hope that things are going to work out. There is always art as a suit of armor, remember that."

Theresa Tarara is a fine art photographer. She studied at The University of Arizona in Tucson, majoring in Studio Art with an emphasis in Photography, and completed her BFA in Photography at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona.

To create her photographs she uses an iPhone and a digital Pentax KS2, in addition to analogue film on an instant film converted Polaroid 110B Land, 35mm Olympus OM1 and Argus CS3 cameras.

THE UPPER ROOM by Suzanne Izzo
(Click on image for larger view)

Suzanne Izzo says, "My series “Tanglewood Barn” is a photographic portrait of the barn built by Honee Meeker in 1891. 

Measuring 42" x 136" it is considered the largest barn in Michigan.  This barn was the most striking feature of the farm owned by my grandparents when I was a child. 

As they moved from farm to farm, my grandmother gave a distinctive name to each one, and this final one she named “Tanglewood.”  The farm passed to my uncle and after his death was bought by the daughter and son-in-law of a high school classmate of mine.  It was through their generosity that I was able to spend several days making photographs in the large old barn. 

It was a joy to work under the cathedral-like vaulting surrounded by the solid wooden beams and siding.  

I originally printed the "Tanglewood Barn" series in silver gelatin.  However, when I began working with the salt process, I felt it fit the subject perfectly.  I thought it appropriate to use an old photographic process for the old structure, and the brown tones of salt were well suited to render the wood of the construction."

Suzanne Izzo began photographing when she received a twin-lens reflex camera for her tenth birthday.  She learned camera and darkroom skills from her father, an amateur photographer since boyhood.  After she retired, while continuing to work in silver gelatin, she began experimenting with the historical processes.  Since then, she has been printing in cyanotype, Van Dyke brown, gum bichromate, and most recently in the salted paper process.  In addition to printing from camera-produced negatives, she uses various methods to make glass negatives for cliché verre prints.

Her work has been exhibited in many of the galleries in the Washington, DC area.  She also participated in a gum bichromate exhibit in Flint, Michigan in 2000, a cliché verre exhibit in San Francisco in 2011, and a gum bichromate exhibit in Astoria, Oregon in 2013.  Her images have been included in two of the books in the series “Contemporary Practices in Alternative Process Photography” edited by Christina Z. Anderson: Gum Printing and Salted Paper Printing.

CAL GARBAT 1 by Steve Lovegrove

Steve Lovegrove says, "My arts practice revolves around  learning and perfecting historic handmade photographic processes, in particular wet plate collodion, and is dedicated to preserving and passing on knowledge of these processes.

Since 2014 I have been transitioning from commercial photography to a fulltime arts practice. The wet plate process is difficult, labour intensive, expensive, and not mastered quickly. I have developed my practice by attending workshops and master classes in Australia and internationally. I am also working with other analogue processes, including cyanotypes and lumen printing.

My subjects range from abandoned buildings and industrial sites to wet collodion photograms made in the darkroom without a camera."

Steve Lovegrove was born in Adelaide, South Australia in 1960. He works with photography, digital, film, alternative and historical photographic processes.

Lovegrove completed a Certificate in Photography at Elizabeth Community College, South Australia in  1977 and a further Diploma of Photo Imaging with the Tasmanian Polytechnic in 2012. He has received multiple awards from the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP).

He currently teaches photography at  Tasmanian Tertiary and Further Education College, Hobart.

Lovegrove has been accepted into the University of Northern Colorado's Wet Plate Collodion Juried Show, the New Orleans Photo Alliance satellite exhibition, The Perpetual Instant, at the Zeitgeist Multidisciplinary Arts Center, and the Head On Mobile exhibition, 2015. Accepted for the RayKo 9th Annual Juried Plastic Camera Show 2016. Accepted for group shows: Film Shooters Collective NSEW exhibition at Revela-T, Barcelona, and Kranzberg Arts Centre, St Louis, USA, 2016. Exhibited solo show Hidden Within at Revela-T festival, Barcelona, 2017 and was accepted for the Revela-T artist exchange program, 2017. Solo exhibition, Perfect Imperfect, Studio gallery, Salamanca Arts Centre, 2018.

Lovegrove is an AIPP Licentiate, Master of Photography. He lives and works in Hobart, Tasmania.

QUEEN ANNE'S LACE by Shauna Caldwell
(Click on image for larger view)

Shauna Caldwell says, "Being an Appalachian woman and herbalist, I am committed to honoring the women in my community.

So many people have forgotten the plants their grandmothers knew, and I believe it is important to find and understand this ancestral knowledge. The plants in this series have been chosen by women who possess an intimate connection to the land and a beautiful and poetic way of communicating through plants and herbal medicine.

I want to express my gratitude for these inspirational women while deepening my relationship with the soft and quiet wisdom of plants. My intention for this ongoing series is to create images in collaboration with my mentors, teachers, and elders because they have their own histories, their own stories, and a connection to the Earth that we need right now."

Shauna Caldwell is an artist from Boone, NC. Her roots in Appalachia and her relationship with the environment inspire her, allowing her to create work based around themes of sacred relationships and transformation. She is also interested in using artistic processes that connect her to her home, like making paper and photographic emulsions using plants from the area.  Shauna is currently studying Studio Art and Art Education at Appalachian State University.

ECHO ENIGMA by Scott Froschauer
(Click on image for larger view)

Scott Froschauer says, "I experiment with many different forms.

This particular work represents a technique I call “Echo Enigma.” To create these pseudo-historical documents I begin by hand pouring silver onto glass and adding contaminants to disrupt the mirroring process.

I then use a flatbed printer to print a digital image onto the distressed silver. The resulting piece has a rich depth of texture and color variation in the distressed silver and a haunting image quality. It also proves to be challenging to document photographically due to its underlying nature as a mirror. I know of no one else who prints in this manner.

This particular portrait is part of a larger collection that explores the binary conversation that exists in our national relationship to politics. Personalities are viewed as either heroes or villains. Those we view as “on our side” are given an air of sainthood while those we oppose are demonized. The space for the complex center is eliminated.

This series of portraits seeks to capture individuals who are complex humans in our nations past. Individuals that some might demonize or worship based on a single headline in a Facebook post, but these complex characters have a humanity that is difficult to capture in a single tweet.

They are not clearly heroes or villains, they are human beings. The use of the “Echo Enigma” technique emphasizes that our view of these individuals is actually a reflection of the viewer as much as, if not more than, the content of the character.

This print is 36” W x 48” H."

Scott Froschauer is an experimental artist who lives and works in Los Angeles, and he likes it there.

His background consists of a structured education in Engineering, Theoretical Linguistics, Science, Art, Computer Programming and Business along with practical experience in Fabrication, Design, Non-ordinary Reality, Experiential Narrative, Venture Capital, Counterfeiting and Breathing. 

Scott’s work is first and foremost experiential, focusing on pieces that are not easily captured through photography and digital distribution.

From the setting of reassuring street signs to the texture of burnt canvas, Scott’s pieces are designed to be experienced in person. 

Some of his work is an exploration in emotional connectedness some work is about revolution, particularly considering that our culture considers being connected to oneself as a revolutionary act, but his primary focus is on exploring new spaces and techniques for communication.

Sarah Jayne Kennelly says, "The work I create dissects the way our actions influence and impact one another.

The effects we have on the world are often regarded as fleeting, temporary. I hope to encourage others to take their own actions into consideration, walk with intentionality, and appreciate the relationship they have with the world."

Sarah Jayne Kennelly is from Rochester, New York, and is currently in her Junior year at Appalachian State University studying art education.

Expressing herself and ideas through art stems from her encouragement from her mother and grandmother. Sarah Jayne's work explores the relationships between people, social constructs, and the environment.

She has found a deep connection to photography and printmaking and uses these mediums to express these relationships and ideas.

MOTH by Ray Bidegain
Honorable Mention
(Click on image for larger view)

Ray Bidegain says of his work,
"Muse- Verb: To consider something thoughtfully

Noun: A source of artistic inspiration

One origin of the word muse is the 14th Century Middle English musen, which meant to mutter, gaze meditatively on, and be astonished. This is a great description of what we do in museums.

In mythology, the Muses were nine goddesses who symbolized the arts and sciences. Today, a muse is a person or place that serves as an artist's inspiration. Writers, painters, musicians, and other artists may have muses. 

Musecan also refer to thinking deeply. If you muse about something, you're giving it serious thought. You can't muse in five seconds. Musing, by definition, takes time. Artists muse on certain ideas for years.  

These photos represent the things and ideas that I muse on, and that have been sources of inspiration for me. I hope they inspire musing in you as well."

Ray Bidegain was born in Tucson, Arizona and started studying photography in high school. At age 17 he began working on weekends for a large studio that offered wedding photography to the Hispanic community in Southern Arizona. Ray graduated from Brooks Institute of Photography in 1981 and returned to Tucson to operate his own studio before moving to Portland, Oregon.

After 17 years as a studio portrait photographer, Ray turned to fine art photography, eventually teaching himself the art of platinum printing and, later, wet plate collodion, and polymer plate gravure. 

Fascinated by both the science and the art of photography and printmaking, Ray is an engaging and respected photo instructor throughout the Pacific Northwest. Ray’s photographs are internationally collected, and his work has been exhibited across the United States, and in France, Germany, and Scotland. He is currently represented by Russ Levin in Monterey.

SUSPENDED by Paula Riff
Images are Color gum bichromate over Cyanotype and are unique prints
(Click on image for larger view)

Paula Riff says about her series 'Conversations with Paper And Paint', "The Japanese word shibui or shibumirefers to a particular aesthetic of simple, subtle and unobtrusive beauty and it is this concept that drives the core of this series.

An object or piece of art that employs the characteristics of  shibui may at first appear to be simple, but upon looking more closely, one notices the subtle details or textures that balance the simplicity with a rich complexity. 

In this project I use cameraless images with the processes of cyanotype and color gum bichromate that allow me to explore and intervene with the natural world as an artist.  

Cutting the paper at various intersections also allows me to enter the conversation with the materials I use in an intimate manner. The intention is to strip away as much as possible so that I am able to focus more on the elements of design and consider the natural world in a different realm.

I am influenced  by the artists Moholy-Nagy, Man Ray, Mark Rothko and others who experimented with their art and the use of their materials. Like them I am interested in ideas of revolutionary art making and experimentation, while holding true to the spirit of abstraction."

“Art is an adventure into an unknown world, which can be explored only by those willing to take risks.” (Mark Rothko)

Paula Riff’s first career did not involve taking pictures.  After college, she lived in Tokyo, Japan for several years and upon her return became an interpreter for Japanese production companies in Los Angeles.

She switched careers while landing an internship at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in the photo department.

She also worked at the California Institute of the Arts, taking photos for their publications.

Although Paula owns digital and film cameras her new work finds her camera-less, coating her own papers and making photograms.  Paula’s work has appeared in numerous galleries and exhibitions throughout the U.S and internationally and is also held in private collections.

THE PHOTO ALBUM by Marilynn Gottlieb
(Click on image for larger view)

Marilynn Gottlieb says, "Dissatisfied with the intangible nature of digital images and the accompanying loss of hand involvement, I began to experiment with photo transfers.

Using a chemical process, I transfer my photographic images to various substrates such as metal, wood or glass.

The surface I choose depends on the subject matter of the piece – such as black and white images on metal, images of doors and windows on wood, and swimming pool images on white tiles.

Coming from a background that included both art and photography, I also combine photography with various other art mediums, including paint, encaustic and collage.

Additionally I make use of repurposed materials to create three dimensional pieces which incorporate photographic images - such as transferring close up images onto microscope slides which are arranged in an old microscope slide box, or printing negative images onto brass plates that fit in an old 4x5 negative developing box.

My goal is to create one of a kind pieces of art that incorporate photographic images. Photography can be so much more than a digital image or a print on paper that can be printed over and over again."

Marilynn Gottlieb was born in Santa Rosa, California and graduated from the University of California at Santa Barbara. She also studied art and photography at Stanford University and in Aix en Provence, France, and has a degree in Medical Photography from Bellevue College. Aside from photography, her art education included figure drawing, oil painting, and collage.

Ms. Gottlieb’s original photographic inspiration and work began in the time of darkrooms and film, which required craft and physical interaction to create an end piece.

Although now fully embracing the digital age, her goal is to include an artistic “hand” in her work creating one-of-a-kind art pieces incorporating other art techniques such as collage and paint, as well as using substrates other than paper – metal plates, Plexiglas, glass  - and incorporating reclaimed materials that reinforce the theme of the piece. She considers herself an artist who uses photography as a starting point for artwork.

My images here are from classical film photography to instant polaroid photos."

JULIETTE HAS A GUN 3 by Nadine Delrez
Second Place
(Click on image for larger view)

Nadine Delrez says of her work, "In addition to social photographic reports, I have extended my field of photography practice with the so-called "alternative" techniques.

Amongst those techniques I discovered during my studies, there is one I literally fell in love with : the gum bichromate. While learning from practice, I have found my way and I am getting deeper in three- or four-colour process gum. Adding colors to an ancient technique is for me a way to render it contemporary, but still preserving the rare, unique and refined side of it.

Bichromate gum is a slow process : you have first to select a theme, then take photos, followed by selection, printing, and, finally, you have to set up the whole  process of chemistry and exposure to a source of light, in order to realize the transposition step by step. In the end, this is not the original photo anymore ... but it still is : so, it is sort of alchemy, transmutation, where reality is becoming something else.

With "Juliet has a gun", a series still in progress, I want to touch upon the idea of third sex and I want to show the unsettling beauty of those people who assume - even who cultivate - ambivalence, until sowing disorder in spectators mind."

Nadine Delrez was born in Verviers (Belgium) in 1971.In 2013, she decided to take on her passion and she interrupted her professional career to join the photography section of the "Saint-Luc" School of Arts in Liège. She obtained her Bachelor of Arts in 2016.

During her curriculum, she has discovered the so-called "alternative" photographic techniques, to which she has not ceased to devote herself ever since, with a predilection for tri- or quadrichrome gum bichromate. This "non-argentic" photographic process consists of mixing gum arabic with diluted potassium bichromate and natural pigments, then coating the whole mixture on a support such as watercolor paper, before insolating it.

Through this technique, freedom of creation is nearly total, while being random, even sometimes fortuitous.
