Kindred is a portrait exhibition printed entirely using permanent processes. Each photographer has submitted an image of someone within their community that they admire along with a description of their relationship to their subject. The result is an exhibition of people from all walks of life who are being celebrated through the photographic medium.
Kindred will first be popping up for two days in Montreal where we have one branch of our network within the photographic community. This exhibition is comprised of a large number of Quebec artists, allowing for a true exchange when the show is installed in Toronto this November.

Derek Crowe is an adventurer, storyteller and trail builder. I am inspired by his photographs and words which reflect a deep connection to the people, the land and the history of the North. Our paths often cross in the tiny town of Carcross, Yukon where he mentors First Nations youth building world renowned trails on their traditional lands. I photographed Derek as part of The Builders Project, a collaboration with writer Jenn Roberts to chronicle the collective history of Yukon mountain biking.

However the light shines on Ella, she can stay in balance. Ella is responsible and organized. Deciding to travel before furthering her education at massage therapy school, she visited Europe, Iceland, South America and then travelled in Asia with her brother, Clayton. As Ella says, she did all the trip planning while they were together. Ella continues to build her ‘tool box’ to help others with physiological ailments; they will be guided by dedicated hands.

Physically and mentally strong, Patrick Danquah is known as a serious, very private and a mysterious man.  He is mesmerizing as he moves like a hummingbird with clear and precise form and rhythm drawn from his Ghanaian roots. The effect is like fireworks, inspiring my performance and rehearsal Latin dance photography for the last eight years. Experiencing this from the inside out, I also have been fortunate having been one of Patrick’s dance students in Toronto. Here in rest, one still feels his power.

Advanced Alt Workshop

Bob Carnie/ Gum Bichromate

December 27-30 2017

1840 Danforth Avenue, Toronto

This workshop is aimed at those people who have a desire to learn in a welcoming atmosphere how to make wonderful permanent prints and have:

-Taken a workshop with us before

-Can show that they exhibit the right knowledge base to not slow down the other printers.

The goal of this workshop will be to make a series of 15×20 prints on paper that are multiple layered images, Gum over Palladium, Duotone Gum, or Tri Tone Gum Bichromate. Your choice of process and look rather than teacher directed.

We will stay with this image size to maximize workflow for the course of four days. This size is a traditional aspect ratio for portfolio prints.

The hours of this workshop are from 8 am – 5 :30pm each day with group dinners considered after each long day.

Summer Gum Workshop!

photo cred/Monica Glitz

When: July 22/23

Cost: $375 plus tax

Gum Bichromate is one of the simplest and cost effective ways of making permanent colour and black and white prints.

Spend two days in the darkroom with Bob playing with this unique process.

Using your supplied images, we will make printing negatives via inkjet materials and then spend the time coating and printing.

This is not a formal technical workshop, but rather a simple two days of getting a handle of one of our most beautiful printing processes. Gum Bichromate with pigment is one of the oldest photographic processes and with the advent of digital technology, we can make simple negatives that 20 years ago would be out of the reach for most photographers.

This workshop is not intended to create perfect colour density or portfolio work, but rather bring together photographers with a variety of background to play with pigments to create a smorgasbord of possibilities. This workshop is for beginner print makers, no prerequisite is required.

By being exposed to multiple prints and methods of combining colour and black white pigments, each participant can gage whether this is a viable process for their practice.
