Mammoth Wet-Plate Photo Lecture with Luther Gerlac...

Presented by Photography Month Sacramento at American River College

American River College, the James Kaneko Gallery, and Viewpoint Gallery is privileged to present internationally renowned photographer Luther Gerlach and his mammoth wet-plate collodion photography. The past meets the present in this intriguing photographic process created with wet chemicals, glass and tin plates. Luther Gerlach is one of the photographers responsible for the resurgence of this method in contemporary art. He demonstrates these processes for the J.Paul Getty Center. He travels the world in a converted darkroom bus for mammoth plates and created the only existing see-through, functional camera and darkroom chamber where small plates are shot and processed before your eyes.

An exhibit of original plates will take place at the James Kaneko Gallery at American River College and at Viewpoint Photographic Art Center. This event continues as a demonstration of the process on the lawn near the iconic oak at American River College on Saturday, April 14.

This event is made possible by an American River College Foundation Innovation grant.

Note: This lecture will take place in Raef Hall, Room 160. Raef Hall is nestled behind Howard Hall and the Counseling and Administration building. If you get to Rose Mark Quad, you have gone too far. For a campus map, click here.
