2017 in Review

2017 saw us renaming the main gallery, changing from the Dylan Ellis Gallery to the Connections Gallery. This name change reflects our mandate to “connect” artists, curators and gallerists.

Thank you to all of the photographers who showed such an amazing variety of images.

In 1840, the same year the now world-famous restaurant Antoine’s was established, Jules Lion opened the first photography studio in New Orleans. Lion, a lithographer, had traveled to Paris to learn the Daguerreotype process from none other than Daguerre himself. Since that time, New Orleans has had a rich and varied photographic history.

What
Alternative Photo Revolution
 
When
March, April, May 2017
 
Where
We are putting a travelling show together that will exhibit in three cities: First Washington DC and New Orleans (March/April  2017) as pop up shows, then back to the Dylan Ellis Gallery in Toronto for the Contact Photo Festival in May 2017.
As you may know our Lambda is back up in operation, which means specific quality film being available for many alternative print options that Bob specializes in. Contact print in Silver Gelatin, Lith Silver Gelatin, Solarization Silver Gelatin, Contact Platinum Palladiums, Contact Duotones of pigment over Palladium, and of course Tri Colour Pigment over Palladium.
Our last two fantastic Contact shows were incredible successes, with Rita Leistner leading the way in 2015 followed this year with Monica Glitz.
Both bodies of work were in tri color pigment over palladium and were excellent examples of what great photography can be.
The idea is to create a large show from photographers from any location willing to work with Bob and create up to two images each of your best work. Whether its colour pigment, silver gelatin or expressive lith prints we will make the decision together and create a one of a kind print that you can be proud of.
