“Art Intersection is pleased to invite artists to submit work for consideration in Light Sensitive, a national juried exhibition of analog photography. This annual exhibition celebrates the traditional methods of making images in the darkroom. Past work has included c-prints, platinum, cyanotype, gelatin silver, gum bichromate, wet plate collodion tintypes, and other printing processes. While the final print must be made using analog techniques the use of computer generated digital negatives/positives in the creation of the print is acceptable.
Two or three artists will be selected from the exhibition as best in show for an additional exhibition sometime in 2013-2014.
Juror: Kate Ware, Curator of Photography at the New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe.
- Work accepted for review must utilize media that is based in analog photographic processes. The final print must be produced in a manner other than digital printing. Prints may be created from digital negatives.
- Three–dimensional work and artist books will be considered if they have an analog photographic basis.
