DEC 2022- Article: Twenty Alternative Process Photographers You Need to Know! by Christina Z. Anderson
excerpt: When I was asked to write this article my first reaction was “Sure, no problem” until I made a list of 116 “alt pros” off the top of my head that I keep tabs on. I could write six of these articles and still not cover all artists I follow. What parameters would make me choose this person over that? There are some well-known artists who use an alternative process or two in their work but probably wouldn’t identify themselves as alt pro photographers. Though I am thrilled these artists lend cachet to these processes which have often been backgrounded in contemporary photography, just because cyanotype, or chromo, or salt printing, is what one is noted for in museums does not an alt pro make. I was interested in those who have spent most of their creative life with the handmade print, ever-broadening now to include analog black and white and color printing. In fact, what used to be differentiated as “experimental” and “alt” or “darkroom” and “dimroom” is blurred.

I’m pleased to have two of my favorite Polaroid prints from “My Forever” series in this show. I’m curious how they will translate blown up and shown outdoors. Unfortunately, I will not be at Click! this year to see them in person, but I’m pleased my art will be participating this year in place of myself.

More specifically, these tapes are conversations with people I’ve befriended on my journey as an artist and publisher. In these conversations, I get to learn a little more about these folks that I admire and respect and I’m inviting you into the conversation.

I’ve watched Aline Smithson grow Lenscratch since the very beginning, it’s such a pleasure to be showcased on this marvelous site. Thanks Daniel George for the feature. 
"While viewing Blue Mitchell’s interrelated series Chasing the Afterglow and Of Salt and Earth, I cannot help but reminisce on last year’s total solar eclipse. At the time of the event, I was fortunate enough to be living in a high-altitude, rural community directly in the path of the moon’s umbral shadow. Those brief couple minutes of totality renewed my sense of awe in the light-giving, celestial bodies that occupy our sky and their relationship to our planet and its inhabitants. Mitchell’s work offers reverence to the sun, moon, and Earth in a quiet, contemplative fashion. The ethereal quality of these images invites us to linger—to calmly examine the sensations they elicit. They are meant to be felt. By doing so, they encourage us to reconsider our own bond with the natural world." –Daniel George, Lenscratch
