Jessica Kalmar will speak on

"Experimental Artwork"

Digital Imagers Meeting

Sunday Jan. 5, 2014 at 1:15, Pitt Scaife Hall, Room 1102


I will discuss my use of photography experimentally. I am primarily an analog photographer and make most of my work in the darkroom creating traditional silver gelatin prints using alternative processes such as dageurreotypes, tintypes. gum prints,etc. I experiment with camera formats (Holga, 4x5, pinhole) or devices to make a seemingly "perfect" camera into more of a tool with various results (e.g. attaching a mirrored prism to a Hasselblad). These experiments are useful in my ongoing statement about linking perceptions with reality.
