Andy Mattern

Platinum Ghost Prints

Andy Mattern reactualizes the traditional platinum printing process after observing that historical platinum prints leave a remnant of their images when in contact with paper over decades. By rephotographing these “ghost” portraits and printing the resulting images in platinum, Mattern investigates how photography can reproduce itself through time periods.

Edie Bresler

Unique Pigment Prints with Embroidery

Another form of early portraiture in photography is the anonymous nude. Edie Bresler, observing the vulnerability of the sitter in a series of nudes captured before 1910, transforms the portraits through alternative processes and applies fine embroidery, creating an echo to the original photograph and imagining the stories of these individuals.

Charlotta Hauksdottir

Mixed-Media Composite Photos 

Charlotta Haksdottir deconstructs her landscape photographs captured in her homeland of Iceland and in California by building sculptural composites. The fragmented photographic cutouts reflect the limitation of the photographic medium in capturing it all, both the landscape and the inner psyche while addressing by its dislocation the complex relationship of humans with their environment.
