This unique exhibit was inspired by the Instagram page #sacafterdark which is curated by Vicky Thompson. The curatorial committee at Viewpoint reviewed hundreds of images from this page and selected 80 for the exhibit. All the Viewpoint curatorial members were impressed by the beauty and artistic quality of the images. The exhibit includes landscapes, abstract images, portraits and more all captured from sunset to the early dawn hours. The collection of images creates a wonderfully atmospheric exhibit.
Viewpoint is privileged to present internationally renowned photographer Luther Gerlach and his mammoth wet-plate collodion photography. The past meets the present in this intriguing photographic process created with wet chemicals, glass and tin plates. Luther Gerlach is one of the photographers responsible for the resurgence of this method in contemporary art. He demonstrates these processes for the J.Paul Getty Center. He travels the world in a converted darkroom bus for mammoth plates and created the only existing see-through, functional camera and darkroom chamber where small plates are shot and processed before your eyes.
