McDaniel College plans photography exhibit

The Department of Art and Art History at McDaniel College will hold an opening reception from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday for the exhibit Old Processes, New Meanings: the Wet-Plate and Pinhole Photography of Jody Ake and Derrick Burbul, on view through Oct. 7 at the Rice Gallery in Peterson Hall.

Ake is a contemporary New York photographer who creates his photos using an 1851-era wet-plate collodion process that requires a large-format camera to take pictures on custom-cut glass plates coated with chemicals he mixes.

The process results in shadowy evocative landscapes and portraits.

Burbul sends his homemade pinhole cameras to people around the world, who capture images and return the cameras. The result is a foggy, ephemeral photograph.
