Galerie BMG is delighted to host an exhibition of photographs by new artists associated with the gallery within the past year. The work continues our commitment to showcasing innovative and unique fine art photography created with an array of traditional and alternative processes.

Charles Grogg's "reconstructed" botanicals begin with platinum/palladium prints, hand-coated on handmade Japanese gampi. Each piece of the nine-piece image is individually exposed under sunlight, washed, dried, and then sewn with cotton thread onto a larger piece of Japanese washi.

Andreas Rentsch's series, "Entangled with Justice", depicts the complex realities and relationships of prisoners on Polaroid type 55 negatives, allowed to develop and decay over time. He describes the images as "part performance, part drawing and part chance".

Paul Rider creates landscapes in a studio environment, using paper material molded into various forms. His work is created digitally and printed using piezography inks, archival gray inks, and printed on Hahnemuhle rag paper.

Jennifer Schlesinger's toned gelatin silver prints from the "Object Diaspora" series are created with a large format pinhole camera and depict sacred objects that merge the memory and spirit of the person they once belonged to.

Jessica Somers' series "Bend So Not to Break" explores the balance between the choices one makes and the uncontrollable circumstances that intervene with these choices. The images are presented as Ziatype prints on salted cotton paper, printed in 8x10 format to maintain an intimacy and preciousness within the photograph.
