NOSTALGIA


Nostalgia
A Photographic Exhibition on Gum Bichromate Printing
By Marc San Valentin

2 July – 6 September 2009
The Landing Gallery
UP Vargas Museum

The Jorge B. Vargas Museum will open a photography exhibition entitled Nostalgia featuring recent works by Marc San Valentin on 2 July 2009, Thursday, 6:00 PM at the Landing Gallery.

Nostalgia is a collection of colored photographs using the gum print or gum bichromate process. It is a pigment-based process that relies on a printing workflow and addresses each color of a photograph by printing each channel separately. The process results in painterly images and textures that resemble oil pastel. Through this process, the exhibit characterizes the transition of photography from technical and scientific representations to a more creative approach. It is also the product of extending the process of contemporary colored photography into more expressive avenues rather than assuming the terminal status of online gallery images.

Marc San Valentin is currently a photography instructor at the U.P. College of Fine Arts. He has been actively researching and practicing different photographic methods focusing on extending the photographic process to include alternative or more traditional printing methods. His past works ranged from alternative processes like cyanotypes and salt prints to pinhole photography, which he recently incorporated as a method of classroom instruction in one of the photography classes being offered by the U.P. College of Fine Arts.

Marc San Valentin will also hold an Artist’s Talk on 9 July, 2009, Thursday, 2:30 PM to discuss the process and concepts related on gum bichromate printing.

Nostalgia will run until 06 September 2009. For more information, please contact the UP Vargas Museum at 928-1927 (direct line), 981-8500 local 4024 (UP trunkiline), 928-1925 (fax), 0929-8567909 (mobile), or send an e-mail to vargasmuseum@gmail.com.
