Amy Theiss Giese  



Room Study No. 16, 2013 
skiagram + chemigram
For her mysterious and evocative photographs, Amy Giese returns to photography's refulgent past by using processes first established by photography inventor William Henry Fox Talbot. Called "skiagrams," Giese's photographs record light and shadow at night on paper that is coated with silver gelatin. In the darkroom, the artist then chemically alters the silver, giving the photographs their rich and varying colors. In this manner, Giese combines nineteenth and twentieth century methods and chemistry to create abstract contemporary works of art.

Arno Rafael Minkkinen
Grand Canyon, Arizona, 1995
Weaving together the history of photography with his own journey with the medium, world-renowned photographer Arno Raphael Minkkinen will discuss his career as a fine art photographer and his commitment to making his work without compromising his aesthetic principles. According to the artist, "'Holding My Ground' means staying true to the fundamental tenet of my work: the lens decides what the picture will be." The title also refers to the other aspects of Minkkinen's life in photography, "about going the distance, discovering what that distance could and should be, and exercising enormous patience in the process."
