An exhibition by David Flanagan
Found by David Flanagan presents experimentation with the photographic technique of liquid silver gelatin emulsion printing. Flanagan questions the role of the object in contemporary photographic practice, where the majority of images are not seen as anything beyond pixels on a screen.
Created as the 2020 PhotoAccess Dark Matter Resident, Flanagan coats various natural, recycled and discarded objects first with a subbing material, and then paints multiple coats of liquid silver and exposes the object underneath an enlarger. The exhibition presents the culmination of hard work, trial and error and sheer persistence in the face of alternate darkroom practices.
Public Program: Treasures Found and Printed
