Combining the best of 19th Century photographic processes with the advantages of modern digital technology, Quinton will be making a presentation on the work he and Diana are currently doing with Wet Plate Collodion, Digitally Enlarged Negatives, Platinum Printing, and Non-Toxic Photogravure printing. Join us for an evening that promises to open your eyes to some exciting possibilities for making unique images.
Raised in an environment that promoted living a creative life, Quinton completed a degree in Photographic Arts & Technology at Ryerson university. As a photographer, his work has taken him from the arctic regions of Canada and Greenland, to the waters of the Southern Ocean, the Cloud Forests of Central America and beyond, on projects for international publications, corporate, government, and non-governmental clients. His degree provided in-depth training in traditional photographic processes and Quinton continues to work with large format cameras and traditional techniques including, wet plate collodion, platinum printing, and gelatin silver along with explorations into non-toxic photogravure processes. Living a creative life has given him multiple, but compatible identities as an artist, photographer, teacher, printer and maker of fine handmade books, offering the ultimate blend of exploration, travel and time at home working creatively in the studio or darkroom.
