Steve Sherman will conduct a hands-on workshop demonstrating his use of minimal agitation techniques on January 21, 2006 at the Metropolitan Center for the Visual Arts in Gaithersburg, MD. I had never seen Steve's prints in the flesh until last week. I'd read his View Camera magazine articles, of course, but I had no idea of the power of this technique when properly applied. As soon as Joe Freeman and I saw Steve's prints on New Year's day, we vowed that we would not rest until we had convinced Steve to show us how to do this. Some of Steve's prints are currently on display at the Center until Feb. 4. The address is 9300 Gaither Rd., Gaithersburg, MD. Any large format practitioners in the Mid Atlantic area are invited to come on by and look at them. I can almost promise you that if you've never seen Steve's work before you'll want to attend the workshop. No reproduction comes even close to doing them justice. Official announcement attached below.
