Add to Calendar 2022-05-27 10:00 2022-06-02 10:00 Australia/Brisbane 'Ways of Seeing' - An exhibition of photographic prints by The Fine Monochrome Print Group The Fine Monochrome Print Group&rsquo;s &ldquo;<em>Ways of Seeing</em>&rdquo; exhibition presents portfolios by 10 members of the group. Each portfolio is composed of fine art prints that have a consistent theme. They address a wide range of subjects including&nbsp; landscapes, figure studies, documentary and still life. The 10 photographers have applied their creativity to explore the subjects of their portfolio. Each has their own way of seeing. Each has a visual signature. We hope the exhibition brings viewers to appreciate photographs as works of fine art, and the subtle qualities of traditional techniques and digital processes. The photographic styles in this exhibition range from the strictly traditional, to the abstract, to the very contemporary. The photographers have used a range of photographic methods to help tell their stories. Some have used handcrafted methods from the 19th century, including wet plate collodion process, van dyke brown printing, platinum-palladium, kallitype and cyanotype processes. Some of the prints have required the use of cameras that create large 16x20 inch negatives. One of the photographers has created hand painted photographs. There are also black and white images produced using silver gelatin photographic paper. Equally impressive are the works of photographers who have used digital techniques to create their prints. We hope the viewer can see how traditional and contemporary techniques are complementary, and influence the present, and hopefully the future of fine art photography.
