Hey everybody! If you can't wait until John's next gathering to see some LF work, you can always stop by Aperture Tremont this coming Saturday night and see my latest show (details below).
Dapper – A Distinct Photography Show - opens at Aperture on April 14th.
This outstanding show will feature the work of Mat Marrash, who you may know from the Film Photography Podcast. Mat’s show at Aperture is a documentary exhibit on the world’s second oldest profession, barbering. Mat toured the Northeast and Midwest in search of old-school barbershops, and shot his images with an Eastman Commercial B 8×10? camera. He then meticulously processed and printed each image in the darkroom, by hand. He used Ilford HP5+ film, and all the prints were made on silver gelatin fiber paper, then selenium toned for archival permanence.
This are some of the most unbelievable images we have seen in a very long time. Mat even made a special trip to the Barber College in Ohio City!
Dapper will run from April 14th to April 28th, with an opening reception/party on April 14th. Aperture’s opening receptions are always a blast!
