I’m honored to have my work represented by photo-eye Gallery (Photographer’s Showcase), located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Featured currently, you can see my images from The Old Garden series, and read the entire interview here, Fluid: Documents: An Interview with Diana Bloomfield. A big thank you to all the folks at photo-eye Gallery, and especially to Anne Kelly, Gallery Director.
Diana Bloomfield's photography looks and feels different than the majority of camera-based work today. Her labor-intensive tricolor gum bichromate technique, which requires precise registration and multiple layers of exposure to create each individual image, imbues her prints with a feeling of tactile object-hood. Her color palates range from muted earth tones, to bright flashes of yellows, greens, and blues, to delicate pastels and sepia tints. Documentary in spirit, and fluid in expression, the work feels like a gentle nod to the past in both process and subject matter . . .
