Focus Session: Analog Photographers in a Digital World

The Who, What, Why and How of “slow” photography

A visit with Mel Evans, Jim Fitzgerald, Marty Frank, Phil Mc Auliffe and Rob Tucher of the Monalogue Collective and Tom Gramegna, Gallery 270 Director. 

Bergen County Camera’s Focus Sessions begin Saturday mornings at 9:30 AM, doors open at 9 AM. The artists will speak in greater depth about their process and motivations for choosing to work only in B+W, only using film, and don’t employ any digital process in any aspect of their process! 

Showcasing an amazing variety of vintage/traditional processes such as platinum/palladium, silver gelatin and carbon transfer prints, the artists will speak in greater depth about their process and motivations for choosing to work in “slow” photography.

The show opens tonight and the public is invited to the gala opening, we’re expecting seven of the nine artists whose work is on display in Gallery 270 to attend. It happens this Thursday 11/2/23 from 7-9PM with refreshments and snacks and the show runs through 1/31/24. 

Join us for an exciting exploration of the work of some of the photographers from the Monalog Collective, a group of like-minded stalwart artists who choose to work in “slow” processes of monochrome film photography to express their vision. We’ll discuss their one of a kind works as displayed in the 2023 -2024 iteration of the show The 21st Century Handmade Print.
