July 2: Media Arts Lecture with Brett Henrikson
Brett Henrikson is a Providence based Artist and Photographer. After graduating from RISD in 2011, he has been focusing on making work in the analogue mediums of photography. Brett’s passion of photography is based strongly in the craft and alchemy of the process, from the dying art of C-Printing to traditional Silver Gelatin and the Historical Wet Plate Collodion process, he believes that the hands on aspects of working in the darkroom and using a large format camera give the artist a real sense of creation over their work.
His recent work has been a focus in two subjects. The American west and our cultural interaction with nature. And a large body of work in Wet Plate Collodion comprising of portraits nudes and still lives. Visit his website at www.bretthenriksonphotography.com
Along with his presentation showing different bodies of his work, this will be a great opportunity to learn more about the upcoming workshop he will be leading in the Paul Krot Community darkroom on Wet Plate Collodion Photography. More info on all that here: http://shop.as220.org/products/collodion
