This event has ended.
The two artists share common ground. They both came to photographic expression from other forms of art. They capture three-dimensional objects or physical movement and transfer them to a two-dimensional medium, that is, photographic paper. Their final form of the work is the print, which is recognized as photographic art. Their mode of expression is photographic work bordering on fine art, but, as if in inverse proportion, they also draw closer to the principles and essence of photography. They use original methods to refine the essence of photography in the act of creation—surely, this is the alchemy of photography.
