Announcing "Dapper", Coming April 14th 2012
Hey folks! It's been many months in the making, many sheets of film, and a whole slew of paper, I'm now proud to annouce to you my latest show, "Dapper - A Distinct Photography Show".
This outstanding show will feature the work of Mat Marrash, who you may know from the Film Photography Podcast. Mat’s show at Aperture is a documentary exhibit on the world’s second oldest profession, barbering. Mat toured the Northeast and Midwest in search of old-school barbershops, and shot his images with an Eastman Commercial B 8×10″ camera. He then meticulously processed and printed each image in the darkroom, by hand. He used Ilford HP5+ film, and all the prints were made on silver gelatin fiber paper, then selenium toned for archival permanence.
This are some of the most unbelievable images we have seen in a very long time. Mat even made a special trip to the Barber College in Ohio City!
