The Appalachian Photography Center will open a new exhibit on Saturday to kick off its 2022 season with “Large Format Photographs and Cameras: 1880 – 2020.”
This exhibition will feature an impressive and extensive collection of large format cameras and photographic equipment, as well as photographs taken from cameras similar to these that were created using traditional printing processes. such as platinum palladium prints, gelatin silver prints and more.
The Floyd Center for the Arts explained in a March 14 statement that the photographs featured in the exhibit offer the viewer a fresh look at the history of photographic printing processes, most of which are relatively unexplored by modern photographers.
“Large Format Photographs and Cameras…” is hosted by CPA Director Dr. Russell Young, who has a wealth of knowledge about the vast history of photography and the large format cameras and photographs featured.
Young holds an MFA in photography from the University of Texas and a PhD from Saint Andrews University in Scotland.
