After Reprimand: Photographs by Susan Mikula

William Baczek Fine Arts 36 Main Street Northampton MA (Northampton, MA 01060)

Photo By Lynne Graves

Susan Mikula creates her cinematic photos using only available light to capture images on expired Polaroid film, then recreates the rich darks and subtle lights in large prints with a 19th century platinum/palladium process. The artist writes that this process “can work like form in a poem … allow[ing] a specific kind of beauty to emerge; one in which an old camera and an empty hallway produce an image that could have been plucked from your own memory.”Exhibition preview: hours: 11am - 5pm Tuesday-Saturday, Sunday 12 - 5pm, closed Monday
