Images by Pia Howell & Golden Age

Thank you, Pia Howell, for introducing me to the fascinating world of C-prints. My only experience with a darkroom was back in high school, and despite a plethora of extremely talented photogs in my life, I had entirely forgotten that one can make beautiful imagery with developing chemicals alone. Enter the exuberant work of Ms. Howell, which I took in last Friday night at Golden Age Gallery & Shop.

Love these simple abstract & familiar forms. She’s making an image instead of taking one, the color doesn’t exist until brought forth by her clever hand.
