Join us in Dallas Center for Photography’s community gallery to view the work chosen for the Modern Analog: Historical Processes in the Digital World juried competition and exhibition.
Many photographers use analog as a way to change the way they shoot and to challenge themselves to slow down. Working intentionally on one image at a time encourages a new way of seeing and those limits often encourage creativity that is a shift from the rapid-fire, instant gratification of the digital world.
This call for entry and gallery exhibition sought submissions from those who use analog as part of their creative process. There were no restrictions on the type of camera or techniques used as long as the artist used at least one analog process during the creation of the final image. Juried by renowned large format documentarian Lisa Elmaleh, the works selected for the exhibition use a wide array of analog and alternative processes, including pure analog from start to finish, film-captured to digital-print, polaroids, alt processes, cyanotypes, digital negatives and photograms, and many more techniques that incorporate the unique traits and discipline of analog photography.
The in-person reception will be hosted on Saturday, March 11 from 6-8 pm. This event is free and open to all! The exhibition will run March 11 – 25 with open hours Tuesday – Friday 12-5 pm, or by appointment.
