Michael Miner's Opening at Photography West

St. Patrick's Day weekend was celebrated in fine form with a visit to Photography West to see Michael Miner's photography opening.  As with all of the photographers at Photography West (arguably the West Coast mecca for classical fine art photography), Michael's work is rooted in large format negatives printed in the darkroom on silver gelatin papers.  His technique is excellent and eye superb.  This show is comprised of his large prints, 16x20" in paper size  - that's huge and a significant feat in the darkroom.

I enjoy Michael's work not only for their content and excellent execution but also because it is such a dramatic contrast to my own work that is currently built upon contact printing 4x5 and 8x10 negatives.

It is worth the trip to Carmel-by-the-Sea to enjoy his exhibit.  But hurry, the show ends April 15th, 2018.

When you see Julia (the gallery directory), tell her Jeff sent you!

Take Care,
Jeff
