Christina Z. Anderson

Bozeman, Montana

Title: Caterpillar
Size: 8.7" x 13" Image Size
Medium: Archival Pigment Print of Gelatin Silver Chemigram
Limited Edition: 20

Caterpillar is a scan of an original, one of a kind, chemigram. The chemigram is a physico-chemical process discovered by Pierre Cordier in 1956. Black & white photo paper is first coated with a resist similar to the batik process. The resist is incised with marks and then the paper is processed in developer and fixer, back and forth, over and over. This part can take hours, allowing the laws of nature to collaborate with the marks of the artist to create unique prints impossible to achieve with the hand alone.

Christina Z. Anderson’s work focuses on the contemporary vanitas in experimental black & white and historic photographic processes. Her work has been featured internationally in over 100 shows and 40 publications. She has authored The Experimental Photography Workbook; Gum Printing and Other Amazing Contact Printing Processes; Handcrafted: The Art and Practice of the Handmade Print (Wang, Jianming, King); and Gum Printing, A Step by Step Manual Highlighting Artists and Their Creative Practice (Focal Press/Routledge). She is currently writing a book on salted paper to be published by Focal Press/Routledge in 2017. Anderson is Associate Professor of Photography at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana.

This image, from Beth Dow’s series In the Garden, was photographed at Little Moreton Hall in England and is a reproduction of the original platinum/palladium print. Through her work, Dow examines the ways we shape our environments and how we use photography to mediate that experience. The material nature of photography and the importance of craft are special interests for her. 

Dow writes, “I work quickly with a hand-held camera, looking for things that I can’t immediately discern, aiming to document my initial, pre-intellectual encounter with something. This instant is the most honest to me, because it is an event free of thought, critical impulses, and external influence, and is the only time I can see the world for what it really is, on its own terms.” 

Dow’s work has been exhibited internationally and has received many awards. She has been granted fellowships from the McKnight Foundation as well as the Minnesota State Arts Board and has been reviewed in The New Yorker, Wall Street Journal and Boston Globe. To learn more, visit bethdow.com.

Coma Berenices (Berenice’s Hair) is from the series Night Wanderers. In these photographs, constellations and other astronomical phenomena are personified by means of old photographs and other metaphoric objects that are frozen in ice before being photographed. According to star lore, Queen Berenice, wife of Ptolemy III of Egypt, offered her hair in exchange for the safe return of her husband from war. When it disappeared from the altar, the court astronomer declared it transferred to the heavens as a glittering mass of stars, now known as the constellation Coma Berenices. 

Kirsten Hoving is the Charles A. Dana Professor of Art History at Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont. As a photographer, her work has been exhibited, collected and published nationally and internationally.  As an art historian, she has published widely on topics in the history of photography and modern art, including her book, Joseph Cornell and Astronomy: A Case for the Stars.

Twisted is a tornadic supercell thunderstorm that drifted over the southern plains of Kansas in the spring of 2016. Due to the ideal ingredients in the atmosphere that day, the clouds were perfectly sculpted into one of the most dazzling displays I have ever seen.” 

Mike Mezeul II is an award winning photographer based near Dallas, Texas, whose work focuses primarily on landscape, night sky and severe weather photography from around the world. He spends most of his time teaching workshops and sharing his passion for photography with others. Beginning photography at the age of 15, Mezeul learned his skill set on film and eventually made the crossover to digital in the early 2000’s. In 2015, Mezeul’s image Insignificant was a finalist for the World Environmental Photographer award. His work has been published internationally, most recently in National Geographic – Russia. While Mezeul works full-time as a photographer, he writes that, “There may be challenges and trials in photography, but when your office is in some of the most beautiful places in the world, seeing things many people dream all their lives about seeing, you can’t call that ‘work’.” To learn more, visit mikemezphotography.com.

Blindfold was captured on medium format film in 2012 for a series called Drunken Poet’s Dream. This image depicts Lori Vrba’s daughter Olivia, her partner in making much of her work. They were camping in the mountains of North Carolina and decided to bring this feather along, which was gifted by a dear friend, in hopes of making a worthy image. 

Vrba is an artist committed to film and traditional printmaking. Raised in Texas, her tough upbringing and unconventional path into photography have shaped her sensibilities and craft. Her emotionally evocative work has been widely published and exhibited, both nationally and internationally. Vrba’s work is held in the permanent collections of The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and Lishui Photography Museum in China. In 2015, Daylight Books published her first monograph, The Moth Wing Diaries, which was named one of the top-ten photobooks of the year by American Photo Magazine. Most days you can find Vrba elbow deep in chemistry or chasing the next picture with enthusiasm, die-hard determination and a Hasselblad full of hope. To learn more, visit lorivrba.com.
