Handmade Photography in an Instagram World: Wood+Brass+Silver+Light with Luther Gerlach
Photographer Luther Gerlach has made his career working in a variety of historical processes for over 30 years. Shooting in the field and working in the darkroom, Gerlach manipulates the constraints of the processes and technologies he works with to create some of the largest, most technically perfect examples of alternative process photography today, particularly wet plate collodion. Gerlach will be displaying items form his personal collection of antique lenses and mammoth plate cameras, including cameras he has built himself. Gerlach’s work is a testament to the enduring value of handmade photography in an Instagram world. Come join the dialogue.
