    In collaboration with Fotosphere in NY and Benrido in Kyoto, Japan, we are excited to announce the upcoming exhibition "Time: Exhibition of Contemporary Collotype Prints." The show will open with a reception tomorrow night, March 13th as a part of 2nd Thursday Gallery Openings in the area. The reception will be open to the public from 6 to 9 pm. The exhibition will run through April 27th.

    The exhibition demonstrates the intricacy and sensibility of the process. The participating photographers include:

    Emmet Gowin
    Eikoh Hosoe
    Graciela Iturbide
    Koichiro Kurita
    John Pfahl
    Ryuji Taira
    George Tice
    Arthur Tress
    At the event, we will be displaying a collotype limited edition portfolio. Benrido undertook the entire production of this handcrafted portfolio to commemorate 100 years of printing collotypes. The prints are presented on an individual folding screen diptych mounted on handmade paper and the portfolio is housed in a paulownia wood box. Both signed and unsigned versions of the portfolio will be available for purchase.

    In addition, we are working on the details for a lecture on Collotypes to be held in conjunction with this exhibition. We hope this lecture will raise awareness about this intricate and aesthetically unique process. We will announce the details of the lecture once they are finalized.
