PHOT 86. Mixed Media and the Photographic Image
PHOT 86 class aims to introduce students to alternative ways of looking/thinking and making photographs. It offers students a chance to work creatively with photographic mediums beyond traditional methods. This is a beginning, intermediate, and advanced exploration of the photographic image through various alternative and non-silver processes. Students will learn a variety of traditional non-silver printing methods which can also be combined with more contemporary mediums.
First time offered in the summer!

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.”
