Photographs from the Field, Regina DeLuise, Maryland Institute College of Art, Oct. 21st – Nov. 13th

Posted 10/05/11

From MICA:
The exhibition will showcase more than 35 images made by DeLuise with an 8×10 large format camera while in India, Nepal, Italy and Bhutan. From the start, travel has been integral to DeLuise’s creative process. Throughout her career, DeLuise has traveled to India and Nepal on a Guggenheim Fellowship, to Italy both to study and teach, and to Bhutan on a recent sabbatical. Although the destinations have varied, DeLuise has been moving in the same direction, desiring to roam toward the unknown and bowing to her subject through the lens of her camera. In the making, printing and exhibiting of her photographs, DeLuise’s journey reflects what Nietzsche called “a long obedience in the same direction.”

We were thrilled to have worked with Regina by drum scanning her 8″ x 10″ negatives and producing luscious pigment prints (Ilford  Galerie Gold Fiber Silk 310gsm) for this show.  At MICA both palladium prints and pigment prints will be on view. Regina traditionally creates gorgeous palladium prints so this was quite a joy for us to be trusted through this process from film to digital output.  Quietly thoughtful photographs of extraordinary landscapes, portraits and sublime moments will be on view at MICA from Oct 21st to November 13th.
