August Program Information
Douglas Isaac Busch & E.F. Kitchen, Photographers & BMoA Exhibiting Artists
10:30AM - 11:30AM
In photography, platinum prints (and their close cousins, palladium prints) are valued for their velvet matte surface, subtle range of tones, delicate rendering of the image, and colors which vary from cool greys to warm, rich browns. Patented in 1873, the platinum process has been used nearly consistently to the present. Although many photographers experiment with the platinum process, few have explored the medium as extensively as Douglas Busch and Elizabeth Kitchen. Both of these California based photographers have produced extensive bodies of work in platinum, exploiting the particular characteristics of the materials to produce innovative and compelling prints. Busch and Kitchen will join Curator, Rachel Magnus, for a conversation about their work, technique, and process.
10:00 AM - 4:00PM | All Ages
Also included with admission is an all-ages art project that explores the concepts and themes from Busch & Kitchen’s exhibition, Platinum.
