    Woo Hoo! Getting photos "on the wall" is always a great thing. Hope you get lots of traffic. And maybe a sale, and maybe some shows other places.

    For those who have not heard of one of the premiere photographers that will be exhibiting in this show, I have included the bio of Mr. Charles Phillips. For those who have an appreciation of photography exhibiting the greatest degree of technical perfection, this is a "must see". His bio is as follows:

    Wilderness Images of Charles Phillips

    Internationally acclaimed fine art wilderness photographer, Charles
    Phillips, treks alone, save for a pack mule, for weeks at a time into
    our most remote and unspoiled American Wilderness. His search for
    direct experiences of these primordial areas culminates in museum
    quality photographs which hang in many corporate and professional
    offices including the Coleman Company, Mobil Oil, Warner Bros., Goldman
    Sachs and NBC.

    Phillips studied with photographer Ansel Adams during the 1970s.
    Since then, he has evolved a highly technical craft, adapted from
    aerial reconnaissance and graphic arts photography. The resulting
    photographs possess an extraordinary subtlety of tone and a degree of
    detail that is far beyond what the human eye can see at the original
    scene.

    Phillips award-winning fine art photographs are produced in high
    contrast, finely detailed black and white. They are available in two
    types of limited edition series. The Special Edition series are
    printed in four sizes ranging up to 40x 50. The Handcrafted series
    are available as large as 54x 68 and include a wider variety of
    images. All of the photographs are made by Phillips, using his 8x 10
    large format bellows view camera in various locations of the American
    Wilderness.


    Description of Process:
    The silver gelatin photographic print shown are created by me, based on
    a single 8x 10 negative that I made and executed in my own facilities
    in Caldwell, Kansas These hand signed and numbered works exist in
    seven sizes, viz: 16x 20, 20x 24, 24x 30, 32x 40, 40x 50,
    48x 60 and 54x 68. All works are archivally mounted on larger acid
    free, museum quality mat board. Printing required the evolution of a
    number of special optically exposed, silver gelatin film masks. These
    are precisely registered with the original negative in progressive
    stages during a series of exposures, utilizing a pulsed xenon light
    source, a customized optical process camera projecting onto silver
    gelatin print materials. This unique combination of materials and
    technology is designed to enhance tonal separation as well as fidelity
    of fine edge detail and it produces an exact consciously-controlled
    tonal balance of various elements of the composition. This rigorous
    approach required more than a month of continuous laboratory work to
    produce a balanced, finished print. Each individual print generated in
    this process has been carefully inspected, and where proven
    satisfactory, was logged and then mounted on archival mat board,
    utilizing archival mounting tissue. The final step in the process
    required that I sign and number every print.

    In addition to the numbered prints of the edition, there are 25 artists
    proofs, designated AP. Another state of this image exists in four
    different scales, ranging from 20x24 to 40x50. This state employs
    scanning techniques and requires less individual attention. This
    process results in silver gelatin photographs that are high quality,
    moderate cost alternate to the Handcrafted process which is considered
    to be the ultimate in quality. This Special Edition state is limited
    to a total of 950 prints.

    All works of art in each of these states are in no sense copies,
    duplicates, or reproductions of other works, but represent my own
    creative expression. They are strictly limited in number, as detailed
    herein, to a total of 275 hand-crafted edition works (including artist
    proofs).

    Here is an overview of my approach and some examples of who collects my
    work:

    My work is available in two types of Silver Gelatin editions. You might think of them as 1st generation (the HandCrafted editions) and 2nd generation (the Special Editions). 1st generation work is the most direct process and the highest quality. The hand of the artist, myself, is the only one involved in the darkroom process and the technique is unique in fine art photography. The Description of Process will give you some idea of the craft involved. This type of edition is considered the ultimate in quality and has the highest intrinsic value.

    It is not tradition that secures the survival of our craft, its the craft that secures the survival of our traditions.

    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.
