The Light Beyond Exhibition (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

The Light Beyond is finally installed at ViewPoint Gallery and open to the public; unlike many of my shows to date, this is focused on a technical element, as opposed to subject or location. In addition to printing, framing and hanging the show, I also painted the gallery a neutral gray before installing the exhibition (sadly, the majority of the co-op members decided they liked it better white, so after the show is over, I have to paint it back to white).
Another element that sets this show apart from others is that it is the first exhibition I had decided to print with a tone to the monochrome images (usually I print them as neutrally as possible). I struggled with what tone to use for some time, but finally settled on rich warm brown for the shadows, shifting to a soft pale yellow for the highlights.
