3 Photographers Visit the 5x7 Project

Hugging an Enlarger

(L-R) Barbara Tyroler, Diane Davis, and featured artist Dawn Surratt stopped in to say hello and spent a few minutes with our 5x7 Durst.

Dawn Surratt shown on the right above, is one of our featured artists with 15 photographs on display through early January . If you have not yet seen them,  come on down. While the three were here, we reminisced about the days of Dektol and a time when photography was simpler. The 5x7 project is, in part, a nostalgic trigger.

The 5x7 Project - A Beginning

New to Through This Lens: a scrap 5x7 enlarger to go with a 5x7 camera and accessories. I've used 4x5 a but this will help make even larger prints, eventually. I used the term scrap because this enlarger really needs a lot of work before it can be used - and because it was recently purchased from the Scrap Exchange in Durham, NC. It seems that almost anything can be found there!

As we make progress new postings will be made - but in the mean time, stop by to meet the new monster. It will be on display in the gallery area as a silent greeter.

On another note, stay tuned for news about changes at the gallery other than our new friend...
