The Dylan Ellis Gallery (soon to be renamed Connections) is happy to present the Alternative Photo Revolution, a group show featuring the work of 40 photographers.

Popping up in Glen Echo, Maryland and New Orleans, this exceptional show will be installing at 1840 Danforth in Toronto for CONTACT Photo Festival.

The prints in this exhibition are printed entirely using alternative printmaking processes, whether it be gum over palladium, silver gelatin or lumen.

Where
We are putting a travelling show together that will exhibit in three cities: First Washington DC and New Orleans (March/April  2017) as pop up shows, then back to the Dylan Ellis Gallery in Toronto for the Contact Photo Festival in May 2017.
As you may know our Lambda is back up in operation, which means specific quality film being available for many alternative print options that Bob specializes in. Contact print in Silver Gelatin, Lith Silver Gelatin, Solarization Silver Gelatin, Contact Platinum Palladiums, Contact Duotones of pigment over Palladium, and of course Tri Colour Pigment over Palladium.
Our last two fantastic Contact shows were incredible successes, with Rita Leistner leading the way in 2015 followed this year with Monica Glitz.
Both bodies of work were in tri color pigment over palladium and were excellent examples of what great photography can be.
The idea is to create a large show from photographers from any location willing to work with Bob and create up to two images each of your best work. Whether its colour pigment, silver gelatin or expressive lith prints we will make the decision together and create a one of a kind print that you can be proud of.

What does the Lambda do and why is this service so exciting for photographers? 

We just set back up our Durst Lambda to operational status, but at the same time threw out the wet colour RA4 process. For us the gamut and options for inkjet printing far out step dye coupler prints. We use the lambda to produce direct silver gelatin prints from any source digital or film. In fact little known fact is that my company was the first company world wide to produce digital silver gelatin prints in 2002 four years before the big 5 labs in the world started offering the service.

David Hunsburger

What are the benefits of scanning old family photographs? 

My family’s archives are all stored in a shoebox; I would imagine most people are like us. The small prints and negatives are in some cased over 100 years old.

The prints exhibit dings, creases, smudges basic wear and tear, and the negatives for some odd reason are loose and not in sleeves.
