The Current Season

 

Sixty Years in the Dark (Room)

by Jon W. Balke

Aug. 15-Sept. 30

Balke has been photographing the environment for more than 60 years, creating his environmental images with a large format view camera and develops the prints in his darkroom using the traditional gelatin silver process. His limited edition fine art black-and-white prints capture the natural world with unique lighting, spatial perspectives and line-form relationships.

At this time, face coverings are required inside University buildings for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status.
