> DESCRIPTION

John Huggins is a master of the challenging and exacting process known as Polaroid transfer (made even more challenging by Polaroid's recent bankruptcy). This process, in which wet Polaroid emulsion is transferred to another piece of paper, results in a grainy, desaturated image. Huggins then enlarges the transfer into a 30x40" archival pigment print, further enhancing the grain of the image as well as the fiber of the paper, thus resulting in a textured, tapestry quality. All of the photographs in this exhibition were made from the photographer's gondola on the lifts of Aspen. His compositions of horizonless, snow-covered mountain faces dotted with tiny skiers suggest a Zen simplicity of man in the context of nature. In the most minimal images, it appears as if the tiny figures are actually skiing down the vertical surface of the paper.
