Hua Jin, Kevin J. Mellis

The monochrome works by Jin explore patterning found within nature and urban centres—investigating the notion of location and repetition. Mellis produces large-scale glass negatives using the wet plate collodion process. His bold portraits radiate with depth and texture, leaving a haunting impression. Also on view is a salon-style installation of works, ranging in process. These artists demonstrate the breadth of creative approaches to analogue photography, in both a traditional and contemporary light.  Visit Sunday, May 10 for a reception and artist panel. Discussing original photographic processes, including pinhole, cyanotype, and others, artists will speak to how these techniques inform their work in a contemporary context.
