Please join us 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM at Blink
Gallery, October 17, 2015 for a special night
Celebrating a collection of hidden gems from deep in the archives. We will be showing 35mm photographs from Alexander “Sandy” Nesbitt’s early photographic career. This collection showcases Sandy’s innate ability to capture the feeling of a moment in a single frame often with a wry irony. All of the black and white photographs in this collection were printed in a darkroom by the artist himself between 1989-2004.
It has been a decade or more since this collection has seen the light of day. Many are one-off prints, others are in tight editions of 5 and 10. With the darkroom gone and the color labs closed, these will never be printed as analog silver prints again.
This is a unique opportunity to enjoy some of Sandy’s early work and celebrate a simpler, more hands on approach to photographic art making. We have such a tight collection of these analog darkroom prints that they will only be available, first come-first serve, during the one month run of this show.
