Tune in for this exciting artist talk with award-winning artist, Amanda Marchand. Amanda has been looking at our changing environment through the temporality of photography’s fugitive lumen process. She will share some of her work from “Lumen Notebook” – cameraless sun-prints made with black & white photo paper. Her practice includes a materials-based approach to the photograph, combining early photographic methods with current technology, and a focus on the natural world. She engages with the lumen process and its color alphabet as a measure of time and flux. Working with this experimental photo process has been a way of thinking more deeply about our place in the universe; the work points to large-scale change affecting the planet. She will also discuss how books have been an important part of her art practice and share her recent artist book of lumens, “The World is Astonishing with You in it: A 21st Century Field Guide to the Birds, Ferns and Wildflowers.”
Amanda Marchand is a Canadian, New York-based photographer. Her work explores the natural world with an experimental approach to photography.
