Elizabeth Opalenik Exhibition now on

Elizabeth-Opalenik-ExhibitionNow showing Blanco Negro. Elizabeth Opalenik : Mordancage: images of beauty and poetic grace.
A viewing of beautifully hand crafted images.
About the printing process: Mordançage is a photographic process that alters silver gelatin prints to give them a degraded effect.The mordançage solution works in two ways: it chemically bleaches the print so that it can be redeveloped, and it lifts the black areas of the emulsion away from the paper giving the appearance of veils.

About the artist: Elizabeth Opalenik is regarded as one of the most creative photographers of our time. She is known for her sensual images, including work in the Mordançage process (taught to her by the master, Jean Pierre Sudre), hand-painted black and white, infrared films, Polaroid manipulations and specialised toning. With limitless creativity Elizabeth has found her voice as a photographic artist, learning that all good photographs are self-portraits that lie somewhere between imagination and dreams.
