NEW FROM RICHARD LEWIS

The view above derives from a western grand landscape tradition exemplified by Timothy O’Sullivan and Carlton Watkins, photographers who, 140 years ago, created images to describe the American West to Easterners. Their equipment was bulky, their chemistry is now archaic, and their negatives were mammoth.

Revisiting that tradition, Lewis built a plywood box camera mounted with a 19-inch lens, creating a 24” x 30” contact print. The images have a through-the-keyhole perspective: an uncropped circular field of view focusing attention on infinity.

The other Lewis photographs below are also printed with time-honored techniques, silver print and sepia.

NEW FROM PAULA PHIPPS

Phipps hand-colors her photographs with oil paints, using a traditional technique she has made her own, creating delicate, soft imagery. She also creates collages with intricate patterns and subtle humor.
