Several book artists visiting 23 Sandy Gallery at the Codex Book Fair this week have expressed an interest in the Photo Alchemy show but were unsure if artist books were eligible for entry. Yes! They are. If you make artist books using alternative process photography we’d love to see them.
Photo Alchemy exhibition seeks to showcase the revival in alternative process photography. These deep, dreamy images bring a unique style and surface to a photograph that can’t be achieved digitally. Book artists also have a strong interest in alternative process photography as an image medium. We’ve seen artist books made from everything from cyanotypes to pages of glass negatives and can’t wait to find out what you’ve been up to.
