The New Orleans Photo Alliance (NOPA) is pleased to present “Four by Five”, an exhibit showcasing four photographs by five photographers, all made with traditional view cameras. 

The exhibit will be on display at the New Orleans Photo Alliance Gallery,  from September 6 , 2014 – November 23, 2014. 

An opening reception will be held on Saturday, October 4 from 6:00-9:00pm and a juror’s reception on Saturday, October 11 from 6:00 – 9:00pm.

The exhibit features works by Drew Bedo, a legally blind photographer from Houston, TX; Robert Dutruch, from Bush, LA, with his full plate collodion ambrotypes; Mark Dawson, from Camden, ME with intimate collodion-on-aluminum prints; Maria Levitsky, who recently completed her MFA at the University of New Orleans, showing 8×10 Palladium prints; and Nate Mathews from Bartlett, IL exhibiting modernist inkjet prints from 4×5 color negatives.

The juror, Steve Simmons, is publisher of View Camera Magazine, a bi-monthly publication that began in 1988, and is specifically aimed toward the large format photographer. Each issue provides in-depth interviews with portfolios by respected photographers, new and used equipment reviews, workshop listings, and articles providing technical information for the large format photographer that cannot be found in any other publication. Mr. Simmons is also the author of the book, Using the View Camera, A Creative Guide to Large Format Photography.
