Alternate Process:
The Unconventional Photograph

03/01/2014 - 03/29/2014

Over the past century, the photographic medium has come to be defined by the camera, the silver gelatin print, and the color photograph. As artists have been drawn to the expressive potential of the camera, their use of the medium has expanded outside of the commonly preconceived notions associated with “straight” photography. The boundaries of photography are broadening and artists are expanding beyond traditionally accepted aspects of photography. Artists can use the processes and tools of photography in a larger form and context. The exhibition Alternate Process explores those artists who produce unconventional photography. By expanding the possibilities of the medium, these artists challenge traditionally held conventions about what defines photography and opens the medium into a wider context for the viewer.

John Dugdale unconventionally works with some of photography’s first techniques from the 19th century by employing large format cameras, creating cyanotype prints, platinum prints, and using the albumen process which dominated photography from the 1850s to the 1880s. Dugdale approaches photography with a 19th century sensibility creating contemporary work utilizing processes that emphasize that poetics of his work and the transcendence of time and place, seemingly transporting the viewer to a world of the late 19th century. Having lost most of his vision due to a stroke, this life-altering event forced Dugdale to see in a new way and he begin exploring the origins of the medium through not only the technical aspects, but also the 19th century photographic aesthetic.

In Bernard Faucon’s color Fresson photographs, enigmatic and illusionary images are staged to recreate dreamlike spaces. Faucon’s photographs are printed using the highly coveted and unique Fresson printing process which was invented and is still controlled by the Fresson family. This is a color carbon print where each color is separately printed like a dye transfer and the images resemble glazes of color. Only a limited number of photographers can use the process in a year as it takes a significant amount of time to produce. The images are printed on a handmade paper having an ethereal quality. Faucon presents these illusionary images based on reality and questions photography as a reflection of the objective world while his chosen method of using Fresson printing contributes to his otherworldly aesthetic.

Travis Boyer produces unique works that ingeniously incorporate photographic, textile-based media, and dying techniques. He first takes photographs, prints them on silk using a reverse cyanotype process, and then adds an embroidered design and a color dye on the cyanotype photograph. The artist merges the mechanical process of photography with the handmade processes of dying and embroidery. Though the work is based on photography, the handmade additions lend a painterly quality, as well as a fantastic aesthetic, to the composition. Subject matter also plays a role in the magic of the image lending a feeling of otherworldly mystery depicting individuals in ethereal and painterly spaces of lost innocence.

Fernando Delgado’s use of photography extends beyond only the image capture and places an emphasis on the presentation and installation of the image in order to best clarify the message his work is conveying. In his Speculum series, Delgado incorporates images depicting people or natural elements such as floral images with elements of presentation such as Gothic triptychs or antique frames. Also including Latin inscriptions on glass, Delgado’s use of photography is all encompassing and serves to create a clearly holistic effect. Emphasizing natural forms, his study of nature and the elements of life, death, beauty, and procreation is presented in an original manner that underscores his method of “making” images rather than “taking” images.

The approach each of these artists towards their work not only displays the highly creative potential of the individual and their unconventional use of photographic techniques, conceptual ideas, and diverse use of media, but also expands the concept of the photograph. Breaking the mould of the traditional black and white, silver gelatin print, the artists make the medium their own and continue to expand upon the creative varieties that can be made by using a camera in all of its forms.
