23rd Juried Exhibition - "Distinction"

Juried by Kris Graves



Dave Hickum was our fraternity employee.  He worked for our house his entire life with the exception of military service during WWII.  He was a great guy and a good friend to all who passed through the house.  He had nicknames for us all and kept a close eye on our class attendance.  If we overslept, we heard about it from "Hook" (his nickname) or Erna Mae Guess, our cook.  We miss them both.

Extending Tradition 2


The Light Box Photographic Gallery in Astoria, Oregon

Thirty-six photographers show work in this exhibit celebrating the traditional approach and beauty of large format film photography.
In Extending Tradition 2 we celebrate the work of photographers shooting with large format film or plates, generally 4 × 5 inches and larger, giving recognition to those whose interest and talent follow the masterful path of traditional large format film photography. This is the second time LightBox features the work of photographers using the traditional tools and methods from the early days of photography. These photographers find reward in the practice and their work method is disciplined and results in distinctively unique photographs. The Exhibit includes many styles of imagery and prints in many processes from Pigment Ink to all analog processes, such as Silver Gelatin and other varied Alternative Processes.
