|Don’t miss this unique opportunity to see the artists at work throughout the area this weekend.….“Wow! Is that an antique? Does it really work?” are comments Thornbury photographer, Cory Stickley often hears as she sets up her large wooden camera, preparing to photograph. Stepping into her darkroom is to travel back to a time when all negatives were “souped” in trays of chemicals in total darkness, then printed under the eerie glow of orange light.|
Each image is a unique piece of art made with century old technology.
“10 years ago,” Stickley says, “I chose to begin working just with black and white film because I loved that the photographs had such an abstract quality. With a large format camera, I discovered the incredible detail and range of tones that it was possible to capture on an 8 x 10 inch sheet of film and I was hooked!”
Photos include Cory Stickley, Copper Ewe, Louise MacFarlane, Beaver Valley Glass Works and the Marsh Gallery.
