    Hi Folks

    I need some help here, and I am hoping some could help.

    I want to produce a show that goes to an organization that appreciate alternative prints, I have the space in mind and as well this show would come back to Toronto and be part of 2019 Contact Photo Festival.

    So the concept of the show is where I am looking for some guidance as I want to put a call out that makes some sense.

    I need a title and some fancy words to help me, my idea is awkward to explain but here goes.

    Moment in Time- a photographic show that uses contemporary imagery that illustrates a period of time in photography with the use of gum over palladium..
    for example I would think street images at night could imitate Brassai, a natural still life in window light could mimic a Sudek, a worker photo could emulate a Sanders.

    I am trying to make this not a hokey , flaky show but I am having trouble coming up with wording for something like this that opens the floor to any Genre of Photography image making with use of a historical process. I am not thinking on the lines of the civil war re creations by the way.
    I am also intrigued by the fact that after doing quite a few prints in this process I have found that any Genre works and I would like to illustrate this fact with show so having a concept is important to me, as it could be open to any type of imagery.


    any help would be appreciated.

    Homage to others work in the past , or reflections or inspirations of others work, childhood memory's maybe.
    Influences of the past in many artforms or personal history , family history.

    I was just trying to come up with an appropriate title for photographs and considered that the end prints echoed the capture of the moment they were recorded. The images were all black and white silver gelatin from film negatives. As there was no audio or video I considered them silent also open to the viewers perceptions.
