Two New Monographs featuring Alternative Processes. Jett Sarachek: Pinhole Photographs & Zeva Oelbaum: Blue Prints
As evidenced by last year's The Antiquarian Avant-Garde (Cat# AB246 $49.95)-a survey of photographers using alternative processes-the hype and excitement surrounding nearly-forgotten photographic formulas has been steadily gaining momentum in recent years. Here are two new books of images by photographers using a process to its full potential. Sarachek's moody pinhole photographs couple medium and content effectively. The ghostly figures that wander amidst her landscapes seem completely normal. Oelbaum's cyanotype studies of flora and fauna evoke a previous era, one of scientific inquiry and fascination coupled with new discoveries in image-making. They are sensitively seen and wonderfully produced.
