Red List at State of the Art Gallery

“Red List” refers to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, an organization that maintains lists of species that are rare, threatened, or presumed extinct. These darkroom prints are created from herbarium documentation of plant species that were collected in the 19th and 20th centuries that no longer exist according to the "Red List."

Printed in 1:1 scale on gelatin silver paper in the darkroom, they are "ghost photograms"-- impressions of lost species. The silvered appearance is from the use of chromoskedasic chemistry that causes silvering and selective fogging, and due to the infinite variations of light, chemistry, and temperature, every print is unique.

On exhibit through January 2024 in State of the Art Gallery, 120 W. State St/Martin Luther King Jr St, Ithaca, NY.
