Binh Danh – Yosemite

Published by under Events,Exhibits

Binh Danh’s solo show will be at Haines Gallery from September 6 – October 27, 2012.

Excerpt from the press release:

“SAN FRANCISCO – Known for his innovative approach to alternative photographic processes, Binh Danh presents a new series of daguerreotypes in his fourth exhibition at Haines Gallery. The works on view in Yosemite are the result of his three-year investigation into perfecting the creation of “in-camera” daguerreotypes, one-of-a-kind works that cannot be duplicated and are the earliest form of photography. While Danh experimented with variations on the daguerreotype process in earlier bodies of work, it was not until 2009 that he embarked upon the painstaking process of sensitizing, exposing and developing silver plates in the landscape, striving to achieve the quality he so admires in nineteenth century examples of this medium.

Danh’s daguerreotypes extend and reconsider the pursuit of pioneering nineteenth century landscape photographer, Carleton Watkins, best known for his series of mammoth-plate photographs made in the Yosemite Valley in the mid-to-late 1800s. He revisits many of the same sites as Watkins, including Yosemite Falls, El Capitan and Horsetail Falls, which is only viewable two to three months each year. Though investigating the same terrain as this predecessor, Danh imbues this scenery with his distinctly personal perspective – namely, an attempt to negotiate his connection as a Vietnamese American with the landscape and history of the United States. He explains, “I am interested in how we as a nation of immigrants could ‘reflect’ on these daguerreotypes and see our faces in this landscape.” The highly reflective surfaces of Danh’s daguerreotypes literally mirror their surroundings, embracing viewers within the idyllic environs of this national

Daguerreian Society Exhibit in Baltimore

A deadline for submissions to the Daguerreian society contemporary daguerreotypes exhibit around the time of this year’s Baltimore symposium is fast approaching – 17th September 2012. It will be held at the main gallery of Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) from October 31st to November 11, 2012. The Society is calling for contemporary daguerreotypists to submit up to two plates for the exhibit. return shipping isn’t an option so to be sure to be there or getting a society friend to pick up your images at the end of the symposium and exhibit. Collectors of contemporary daguerreotypes are also encouraged to display plates they may own, so this will make for a great tour de force of contemporary daguerreotypy. The contemporaries will have the option to speak their minds as well as display their art with 3 – 5 minute presentations, and time for a Q&A with the symposium audience. Lets all get submitting!
