A survey of an American idiom in photography. The cabinet card is a hallmark in photographic reproduction. It is multi-faceted, exuberant, and full of folly and cultural signatures. Join Brenton for commentary and analysis of this photographic enterprise.
Brenton Hamilton is a working artist using photography, especially devoted to the use of 19th century photography methods in experimental ways. He has devoted his career to the history and practice of cyanotype, gum bichromate and platinum as base materials for his stories and images within his personal work, which is frequently embellished with gold and silver and paint.
In addition to his practice, Hamilton is an educator at the Maine Media Workshops in Rockport, Maine and has taught these materials and methodologies for nearly 30 years to hundreds if not thousands of students. He has an MFA in photography, exhibits regularly and is a full time instructor working with students in darkroom techniques, the history and development of photography as a cultural force, and many disciplines within photography’s scope. A 25 year retrospective monograph highlighting Hamilton’s work has just been released in 2020. The essay was written by the critic, Lyle Rexer.
