Hello All,

I've posted below the media announcement for our upcoming show this fall in New York. Hopefully by posting this early enough those of you that live nearby and have an interest can possibly pencil in November 8th and make the opening. I plan on being there and would enjoy meeting all of those that can make it. It's the Masterplaters second show together and we are of course excited as it promises to be a well attended event.

The Competition
New York, NY – Soho Photo Gallery is pleased to announce the 8th National Alternative Process Competition juried by Elisabeth Biondi. Now a highly regarded independent curator, Ms. Biondi broke new ground in the magazine world by establishing photography’s place in The New Yorker as Visuals Editor. She has curated shows at the Steven Kasher Gallery, Howard Greenberg Gallery, NYPHOTO 2011 and the South Street Seaport Museum.
Soho Photo initiated the National Alternative Process Competition in 2005 to recognize photographers who create one-of-a-kind, handmade images using photographic processes from the 19th century. These include Albumen printing, Cyanotype printing, Van Dyke Brown and Platinum/Palladium printmaking. The call for entries is available at www.sohophoto.com
Masterplaters: Pictures from the Distant Present
During November, Soho Photo Gallery will also feature a guest exhibition by the Masterplaters, a collective of five photographers who show contemporary imagery they make by using the wet-plate collodion process invented in 1851.
These photographers are from vastly different parts of the country, photographic traditions, aesthetics and education. Their common ground is found in the technique they use to interpret modern questions of place and identity in a search for meaning -- one unique image at a time. Information about each artist and this exhibit is available at: www.masterplaters.com
