Before the instantaneous gratification of digital photography there was instant film.

Self Processing – Instant Photography features a large and varied array of photographs shot with instant film. The exhibition will include photographs by Pinky Bass, Blake Boyd, Linda Burgess, Michael McCraw, Anna Tomczak and more.
