“Finding my Voice”
This will be a virtual talk via Zoom. Stay tuned for RSVP details.
Mark Osterman began his personal investigation of early photographic processes while attending the Kansas City Art Institute in the 1970s. When he stumbled upon the wet collodion process in the 1980s he found a technique that suited his personal interest in early technology. Once mastering the process he regarded it as simply another tool and it took years for him to find the voice that would be complimented by the technique. Osterman will discuss his own techno-aesthetics with this illustrated lecture that includes his earliest experiments up to Anatomy, his most recent body of work made with the wet collodion process.
