Deborah Parkin, from Stillness in Time
Parkin creates wet plate collodium photographs. This one has been printed on glossy paper, which emphasizes the liquid nature of the process.
These are part of the exhibit “This is your world” at Gallery Carte Blanche (Valencia Street, San Francisco). The show features four female photographers from Europe (Aela Labbe, Julie Cerise, Saya Chontang, Deborah Parkin). The photographers explore the dream-like quality of different photographic processes (wet plate, Polaroid, etc). Gwen has done great job of curating this show and the hanging is intelligent. It’s dense - there are many photographs on one very long wall, but your mind follows the work and as you transition from one photographer to the next, it makes sense. At every size the prints look fantastic, you can buy them on the Carte Blanche website.
