Photography started as a chemical experiment. However, the acknowledged inventor of the process, Thomas Wedgwood, was the son and grandson of famous English potters. His entire life he was surrounded by artists, creators. Wedgwoods pals were William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. So, it is not unusual or unexpected that creative folks have taken his work and run with it. For many photographers it's about the camera, for others it's about what can be birthed once it leaves the thing and for others it is the possibility of making images that are miraculous orphans.

Any unique handmade prints are eligible. Eligible prints include but are not limited to cyanotype, lumens, Van Dyke, salt, chemigram, tintype, bromoil, gum bichromate, platinum/palladium, photogravure, albumen, liquid emulsion, ziatype, image transfers, kallitypes, lith prints, hand colored silver gelatin prints, encaustic and mordoncage. Unique prints made from digital negatives are eligible. The camera used for capture is immaterial. Creativity is encouraged...

JURORS: Connie and Jerry Rosenthal will be the jurors for "unique:alternative processes". The Rosenthal's, long-time lovers of photographic arts, are the co founders of the Rfotofolio, a 501c(3) whose mission is to support photographers, educate the viewing public, and support brick and mortar exhibitions.

In 2015 Rfotofolio gave the first Rfotofolo Grant, The Way to Help Grants started in 2016 and in 2018 Rfotofolio established the Denis Roussel Award. All total Rfotofolio has award 13 grants. All made possible with the help of their supporters.

Rfotofolio has had major photographic events with Depth of Field in 2015 at Art Intersection in Gilbert, Arizona, 2016 INPrint at PhotoMethode in Austin, Texas and the 2018 Depth of Field at the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel, California.

The Rosenthal's believe that art can make a difference and by sharing the work of so many great photographers they hope to also share the inspiration.
