August 10 – September 10, 2019
Thirty-six photographers show work in this exhibit celebrating the traditional approach and beauty of large format film photography.
In Extending Tradition 2 LightBox celebrates the work of photographers shooting with large format film or plates, generally 4 × 5 inches and larger, giving recognition to those whose interest and talent follow the masterful path of traditional large format film photography.
For the second time we feature the work of photographers using the traditional tools and methods from the early days of photography. These photographers find reward in the practice and their work method is disciplined and results in distinctively unique photographs.
LightBox was honored to have Stu Levy as juror for the exhibit. Stu Levy was one of the founders of the Photography Council of the Portland Art Museum and was the Council President from 2003 to 2006. He is also on the Board of Directors of Photolucida and the Pacific Northwest Photographers Archive.
