In Our Own Image: The Genesis of Photography and the Contemporary Eye


I’m excited to share that I’m part of an ambitious photography exhibition at the Decorative Arts Center of Ohio. In Our Own Image: The Genesis of Photography and the Contemporary Eye juxtaposes wonderful and varied examples of 19th Century Photography (daguerreotypes, tintypes, carte de vistes, ect.) against the work of contemporary alternative photographic processes practitioners such as David Emitt Adams, and Francis Schenemburger among others.

Jointly curated by Arnold Tunstall and Scott Ferris the show runs from September 9th – December 31st, 2017. In this exhibition,  I’ll be showing an series of large format 16″ x 16″ ambrotypes of individuals named Stephen titled ‘A Case Study of Stephen,‘ as well as  a three tintype collages.

I’ll be holding a number of “open studio days” in which I’ll shoot a series of 4″x5″tintype portraits of visitors that will be collaged and evolve throughout the course of the exhibition. The next open studios days are:

Saturday, November 18, 11:00am-3:00pm
Saturday, December 16, 11:00am-3:00pm
