DESCRIPTION

How the Light Gets In features the work of Bay Area photographers Susan Hyde Greene, John Martin, Ari Salomon, Mark Jaremko, Tara Gill, Kirk Crippens, and Alan Ostreicher. Just how the light "gets in" - what lens, camera, and aperture, or how long the exposure - is central to the creation of the photographic image, whether digital or film. These seven artists use a range of techniques to allow light in, manipulating image exposure and printed product in a variety of ways and to various effect. Viewers will see backlit transparencies, images manipulated in Photoshop, photographs printed on fabric, and prints that have been cut up and reassembled.
