1ère édition numérotée sur 750 exemplaires.
Jeffrey Conley créée chacun de ses tirages en utilisant deux méthodes traditionnelles de chambre noire, l’argent gélatineux et le platine / palladium processus d’impression. En tant qu’artiste et imprimeur, la technique de Conley crée un recueil d’œuvres aussi vaste que complexe et intime. L’artiste a, par ailleurs, perfectionné l’équilibre entre simplicité et complexité, nuance et audace ; introduction de Jeffrey Conley, préface de Peter Fetterman, photos en n.b.
Conley a obtenu son BFA en études photographiques au Rochester Institute of Technology. Il a ensuite déménagé au parc national de Yosemite où il a enseigné à la Galerie Ansel Adams et a passé des années à perfectionner son art. Jeffrey Conley a depuis été exposé dans le monde entier. Son premier livre, Winter, a été publié par Nazraeli Press en 2011 à une large acclamation et a depuis vendu.
“For as long as I can remember I have felt most at peace outdoors. Nature has always been my refuge and sanctuary. I find the natural world to be endlessly wondrous in its range of character and texture, from moments of delicate intimacy and subtlety to the massively expansive and powerful. Nature is in constant change, and photography is particularly well suited to capture and amplify the swirling fluidity and the wonderfully serendipitous moments born of the ephemeral. Photographing nature is a very specific kind of exercise in mindfulness; to be out in nature with senses responsive, keenly aware of circumstances and completely receptive, yielding to the present. The photographs in this exhibition represent some of my observations while investigating nature over these last several years; moments that represent my awe, wonder, and affinity towards our Earth.” —Jeffrey Conley
Jeffrey Conley crafts each of his prints by utilizing two traditional darkroom methods, gelatin silver and platinum/palladium printing processes. As both the artist and the printer, Conley’s first-hand technique creates a compendium of work that is as wide-ranging as it is intricate and intimate. The artist has, moreover, perfected the balance between simplicity and complexity, nuanced and bold.
Conley received his BFA in Photographic Studies at Rochester Institute of Technology. He then moved to Yosemite National Park where he taught at the Ansel Adams Gallery and spent years honing his craft. Jeffrey Conley has since been exhibited worldwide. His first book, Winter, was published by Nazraeli Press in 2011 to wide acclaim and has since sold out.
