Pigment is a group photography exhibition that explores the concept of colour through the historical gum bichromate process. Each of the twenty photographers will have two prints in the show, printed by Bob Carnie.

New York April 6 and 7 Bushwick Community Darkroom

Pigment will pop up at the Bushwick Community Darkroom April 6 and 7 2018. These dates were chosen so that participating artists who wish to visit the city during the exhibition can attend The Photography Show presented by AIPAD. 

Toronto | May 2-June 29 Lonsdale Gallery

The prints will return to Toronto where they will become a part of Red Light, an exhibition at Lonsdale Gallery. This juried salon show will exclusively feature alternative prints by artists from around the world. Red Light is a feature show in the CONTACT Photo Festival.

What is Connections?

We believe that expanding a photographer’s reach is beneficial to professional growth. Getting outside of one’s community and having fresh eyes looking at new work and getting feedback. Our main goal is to create a network of photographers and galleries that can work together to showcase photography.

Our first connection was with L’Espace Contemporain in Montreal where we have sent photographers to exhibit work, and have brought photographers here to Toronto.

2017 projects include the Alternative Photo Revolution that went to Glen Echo, Maryland and New Orleans, and was a part of the CONTACT Photo Festival. In the fall we took Kindred, a portrait exhibition, to Montreal then installed here at the Connections Gallery in November.

Why Alt Printing

 We know that through exhaustive research on print permanence that the noble metals of platinum palladium will not fade, in fact the paper will decompose before the metal will go away. Platinum palladium and gum over palladium have the look, texture and feeling of work done in the very beginning of photographic printmaking. Contemporary prints cannot give us the colour palette and physical sense that these two processes offer. In all cases the base paper is Hahnemühle Platinum, a very lovely 100% rag paper. The noble metal of platinum palladium sinks into the very fabric of this paper and any resulting pigment is layered on top for an exquisite image.
