I recently came back from visiting the Vancouver Art Gallery where the show TruthBeauty: PIctorialism and the Photograph as Art, 1845 - 1945 is currently being exhibited till April 27th of this year. As I wandered around the main floor of the gallery I was in awe, there before me were prints by Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, and many others, the range from print mediums are impressive with just a few to list here, bromoil, platinum, carbon, silver gelatin, you name it. I have long been interested in the history of photography and indeed one of the reasons that I love using the view camera so much is because the of historical significance of the camera and the fact that I able to combine it with modern day computer and ink jet print technologies. The show made me think of my own direction in photography and how I had left behind my silver gelatin printing and I am no doubt that I am on the right road with my computerization of images and ink jet output of those images.
