In the past two decades, Adrienne Sher has divided her time, artistically, between photography and theatre. "I find that the two disciplines complement each other very well," she says. "Theater is verbal, collaborative and interactive with the public. Working in the darkroom or at the computer is quiet, solitary and meditative. I find the more I learn about photography, the more I exchange ideas and techniques with other photographers, the more engrossed I become, and passionate to learn more."
Sher is particularly drawn to vintage cameras and archaic film formats, small and large. "I love alternative processes, hand printing, wet paper, the smell of the chemicals, the brushes and glass rods." The images in Underwater are an attempt to capture some of the romance of the hand-processed print using digital tools. All of the images in Underwater are Archival Pigment Inkjet Prints.
Adrienne Sher's images have appeared at the Viewpoint Gallery in the show “Tree:Observed”, Rick Murai’s fieldtrip shows from Peru, Bhutan and The Three Kingdoms, “Twelve: Small Wonders” and numerous member shows and fundraising auctions at the Viewpoint, KVIE, and Capital Stage. She has also had a one woman show at the Thistle Dew Gallery.
