Camerawork, a gallery dedicated to photography in Scranton, Pennsylvania, has announced "Coal Country," an exhibition of photographs by Carl Weese.
September 6 to October 2, 2007
Opening Reception September 7, 2007 5:30–7:30 p.m.
Carl Weese has been photographing the anthracite coal country of Northeast Pennsylvania since 2001. His efforts began in Centralia but soon moved beyond that community to surrounding towns. The pictures in this exhibit were made on 8x10-inch or 7x17-inch film using traditional fully-adjustable view cameras (a Deardorff built in the 1950s and a Korona dating back to the 1920s). The resulting negatives are traditionally processed, then scanned and printed on an Epson printer using highly stable pigment inks on cotton paper.
