The Image Flow proudly presents Focus On Visibility: Artist in Residence Exhibition, a two-person exhibition featuring the work of Francis Baker and Sarah Rose Weitzman both California artists working with historical and analog photographic processes.
Francis Baker's large scale original artworks are created using the historical gum bichromate process. Each image is one-of-a-kind due to the nature of working with gum bichromate printing-mixing emulsions, coating panels by hand, and hand-embellishing each piece. Francis' work focuses on issues of social injustice and inequity and brings visibility to the Bay Area's homeless population.
Sarah Rose Weitzman displays experimental darkroom photograms using traditional silver gelatin printing. Sarah's work focuses on the idea of “revealing the invisible” by exploring her personal experience living with a disability that is not immediately visible: being born hard-of-hearing and eventually becoming deaf.
Both Francis and Sarah are San Francisco Bay Area artists and were the recipients of The Image Flow's 2018< Artist in Residence (AIR) Program. The AIR Program was established with the goal of providing our equipment and resources to assist photographic artists with the creation of their personal work.
This exhibition is curated from the resulting work created during their residencies.
