Solo Show: Pam Tristram “ALT PHOTO”

Pamela Tristram Solo Exhibition of Cyanotype and Gum Bichromate Prints

“Gum printing is a technique that I have been interested in for years. When I began making some cyanotypes last year, I decided to try to combine the two processes. The prints I’m showing are the results of those experiments. I used the cyanotype print as a matrix, and added layers of gum utilizing both positive and negative kodaliths. By using a paintbrush to selectively apply gum color, and sometimes a water color resist, I was able to have a lot of fun with the layers. I chose these particular photographs because of their simplicity of form and graphic qualities. I always travel with my 35mm film camera, and have named the photos after the places where they were taken.”
