Large Format Book and Slide Presentation
The New England Large Format Photography Collective will present New York City photographer and book maker Douglas Levere on Sunday October 2, 2005 at the Kehler Liddell Gallery, located at 873 Whalley Ave. New Haven, CT.
Levere will give a gallery talk and slide presentation about his book project www.newyorkchanging.com beginning at 3 pm until 5 pm . The book “New York Changing” replicates the works of world renown large format photographer Berenice Abbott. Abbott’s iconic photographs of the New York City skyline during the 1930’s became her signature work with the 8 x 10 camera. Levere uses the same camera, researched the time of day and time of year to portray NYC as it is now from the exact spot as Abbott in the 1930’s. Levere will sign copies of his new book and be available for questions and answers.
In addition from 1 pm - 3 pm The New England Large Format Photography Collective will host our 2nd Annual Members Show. 12 Collective members will display their work in this huge gallery for just this one day. Photographs produced with Large Format Cameras ranging in size from 4 x 5 to 12 x 20. Silver Gelatin, Silver Chloride and Platinum / Palladium processes will exhibited.
The afternoon of October 2nd will be a celebration of Large Format Photography from it’s infancy all the way up to modern day, why not join us!
