Soho Photo Gallery, 15 White Street, NYC. 11/8 – 12/2/2017.
Reception: Tuesday, November 7, 6 – 8 pm.
Join Soho Photo for an exhibit of handmade books, digital publications, photo card sets, and other photographic objects beyond the traditional matted and framed print hanging on the wall. I will be exhibiting 11 accordion folded prints.
From my artist statement: “These hand-made accordion folded prints are images from my ‘Holgarama’ series. The folding allows for longer imagery than I typically exhibit, as they are each made from a full roll of medium format film, instead of the usual half of a roll. The pictures were shot using a $20 plastic camera (that is no longer made) called the Holga. The long overlapping images are created by only partially advancing the film between exposures – the overlapping occurs in the film itself.”
Each image is about 4 feet wide if forced flat. Fully folded they fit into a clear cigarette box sized package, with a ‘Lucky Strike’ inspired label (just for fun). They can be displayed fanned out on end; the zig-zag creates a piece about 24 inches in width.
Below are the available images:
