Lonsdale Gallery presents Red Light, a Feature Exhibition for the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

Highlighting over 300 photographs from 95 artists across the globe, this monumental photography salon installation is an extravagant visual journey. The exhibition surveys a wide variety of historical and experimental techniques, including: pinhole, tintype, glass plate, cyanotype, lithography, gum bichromate, platinum palladium, daguerreotype, photograms, photogravure, tri-colour, gelatin silver, salted paper prints, contact prints, ambrotype, vandyke, carbon prints, lumen prints, polaroid transfers, and more!

Come and feast your eyes on the incredible richness of techniques using light, paper and chemicals; all brought to life by the alchemy of the darkroom. In the words of Ansel Adams, “the negative is the equivalent of the composer's score and the print the performance.” While technology can mimic the end result of these processes, it can never truly recreate the artistic depth and expressive power of a photograph that has been skillfully processed and developed by the artist’s hand. It is this tangible and material quality that makes these photographs so captivating.
