Summer 2021 Juried Exhibition: Remember the Darkroom?

  • by

July 24, 2021 – October 29, 2021

“This exhibition is in conjunction with the inaugural opening of NOPA’s darkroom. I wanted to remind our photographic community of what is creatively possible in darkrooms like the one now available for use at the NOPA Resource Center. Collectively, these photographers have achieved just that. The photographs presented in this exhibition make up a variety of subject matter, from documentary to experimental, some work created decades ago and others created in the past months.”

-Juror Eddie Ralph Hebert, New Orleans Photo Alliance Gallery Director

 Remember the Darkroom? will open with a public reception at the NOPA Gallery on July 24, 6 pm.

This show will feature thirty pieces of work by fifteen darkroom photographers, including Thom Bennett, Benry Fauna, Charles R Franklin, Fred Husserl, Zoe Johnson, Mary Kucera, Donald Maginnis, Brittany Markert, Randy Matusow, Hannah Neal, Kenneth Pape, Leslie Parr, Duc Bieu Pham, Robert A. Schaefer, Jr., Zack Smith, and Eric Thornton.
