Developer Trays at Sara Kay Gallery - I am pleased to have a selection from my Developer Trays series included in EXPIRED, curated by Maya Benton, on view March 4 – April 20, 2019 at the Sara Kay Gallery.

The exhibition brings together work by five artists, Antony Cairns, John Cyr, Jason Lazarus, Susan Mikula, and Alison Rossiter, who work with photographic materials in a variety of media including outdated printing paper and Polaroid film, images arrested on obsolete digital screens, the photo-processing tools of photographers, antique cameras, and personal snapshots.

The opening reception is on Monday, March 4th from 6-8PM at Sara Kay Gallery, located at 4 East 2nd Street, New York, NY. Please RSVP to [email protected] if you are able to attend and I hope to see you there!

Neil Selkirk's Developer Tray, 2010.
What a history for this tray...Neil picked it up from Richard Avedon's darkroom in the early 1970's when he began to produce Diane Arbus' posthumous prints. Over the course of about 50 years, this tray processed the work of Richard Avedon @avedonfoundation , Diane Arbus and Neil Selkirk. #richardavedonfoundation #richardavedon #dianearbus #neilselkirk # #art #developertray #photography #anseladams #analog #analogphotography #viewcamera #4x5 #darkroom #fineart #fineartphotography

Gowanus Canal Oil Slick, 2008.
The Gowanus Canal was designated a Superfund site in 2009 and work to clean it up began in 2013. Although it appears quiet in this photograph, in the 1920's the Gowanus Canal was the nation's busiest commercial canal with six million tons of cargo traveling through it annually.

My name is John Cyr @johncyrphotography and I am excited to take over @spe_ne to share some of my work this week. I am a proud member of the Society for Photographic Education @spenational and an Assistant Professor of Photographic Imaging at Suffolk County Community College @scccphotography in Brentwood, NY. I had a wonderful time meeting colleagues and listening to exceptional panels and artist presentations at SUNY New Paltz for my first (of many to come!) Northeast chapter meeting at the start of October. Thank you to @colleen.fitz for the invitation to share my work this week!

This tray is one of 82 photographed for my @powerhousebooks Developer Trays. I photographed Sally’s 20 x 24 tray under natural light at her farm. Three of her dogs were playing with me while I was loading the film holders in to my view camera...quite an enjoyable distraction! She had about 15 trays for me to choose from for this project but the colors of this one hooked me in immediately. #art #developertray #photography #sallymann #analog #analogphotography #viewcamera #4x5 #spe #spenational #spene #johncyrphotography #abstract #color #artphotography #darkroom

Jim Megargee's Developer Tray, 2011. Currently on view at Elizabeth Houston Gallery. Master printer Jim Megargee @jimmegargee taught me most of what I know about silver gelatin printing when I printed at MV Labs for 5 years. This tray has been used in the production of prints for photographers such as Annie Leibovitz, Jim Goldberg, Marilyn Bridges, Gordon Parks, Matthew Barney and many others. #art #developertray #photography #annieleibovitz #jimgoldberg #gordonparks #matthewbarney #analog #analogphotography #viewcamera #4x5 #darkroom #fineart #fineartphotography #abstract #jimmegargee #portrait #portraiture #elizabethhoustongallery #elizabethhouston
