Luther Gerlach: Mammoth Wet Plate Photography (Pho...

Presented by Viewpoint Photographic Art Center and Photography Month Sacramento at Viewpoint Photographic Art Center

Viewpoint 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.

This event is part of Photography Month Sacramento.
