Artist:
Barbara Bosworth, born Cleveland, OH 1953

gelatin silver print
Dimensions:
7 5/8 x 19 3/8 in. (19.4 x 49.2 cm)
Type:
Photography-Photoprint
Date:

Bosworth uses a distinctive method to make her panoramic photographs. She begins by exposing two, three, or four eight-by-ten-inch negatives in sequence, and then makes a contact print by setting the negatives side by side on a single sheet of photographic paper. The unexposed border of the film where the negatives meet appears as a black line. Although Bosworth could easily trim this mark away, she chooses not to hide the seam between each frame, preferring the evidence of her technique to remain visible. At a time when digital manipulation is becoming the norm, it is refreshing to encounter images that consciously draw attention to the photographic process and the manner of an image's creation.Earth and Sky: Photographs by Barbara Bosworth exhibition label
