New Special Exhibits On Abstract Photography and Curtis Oratones On I Photo Central

You will find two new Special Exhibits up on I Photo Central, added to the other 21 exhibits that were already on display. We have also continued to change images and add to our essays for all our Special Exhibits, so they are all worth another peek, especially if you have not looked lately. I know that I have personally changed over 60 items in these Special Exhibits, just in the last week.

Here are our newest additions:

To Abstract a View. Vintage Works' Maria Di Elsi Connolly's accompanying essay notes, " In one sense all photographs are abstractions. A photograph frames a specific portion of reality. The final image is abstracted from the whole. This is a completely unique approach to making art and is endemic to the medium." The images range from microscopic views to photograms to x-rays to just a photographer's viewpoint that abstracts reality. The subjects may be distorted shadows, specific designs or slices of reality.

Edward S. Curtis Contemporary Original Goldtones. This exhibit offered by Christopher Cardozo Fine Art details the process used to reproduce the original gold orotone process using the original negatives by Edward Curtis. These contemporary limited editions replicate the old process, including Curtis-styled frames. The images are some of the most popular made by Curtis, but a much lower cost than the vintage images.

You can see these fine exhibits, along with 21 others at: http://www.iphotocentral.com/showcase/showcase.php . We are constantly changing and updating these exhibits as we get in new items, so if you have not looked at them in the last few days, you probably have not seen a lot of the material on display even in the older Special Exhibits.
