The Dark Room: Friday, 5 September 2014

Platinum Visions, The Dark Room's next photography exhibition is on display from September 2nd through October 28th, and will celebrate its opening during the First Friday gallery tour in Grand Center on September 5th, 2014 with a reception.

Platinum Visions is a collection of photographs from Christian Nze & Ray Bidegain exemplifying the intricate photographic production technique of platinum printing. Each of these photographs is truly touched by the artist, making it one of the most beautiful forms of photographic history. A platinum emulsion is painted onto the watercolor paper by hand, and the artist then contact prints the negative, creating a timeless image crafted in the same way since the late-mid 1800s.

PlatinumVisions features work from Ray Bidegain (Portland, Oregon) and Christian Nze (Normandy, France).

Curated by Jeff Appel in conjunction with the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum

Monday: closed, Tuesday-Thursday: 3pm-11pm, Friday-Saturday: 3pm-1am, Sunday: 3pm-11pm.
