Barbara Maloney from Dayton, Maryland, USA shows us her Photopolymer gravures and temperaprints.
From: Dayton, Maryland, USA.
Shows: Photopolymer gravure intagio prints and Tempera prints.
Early on, she moved from straight photography to the alternative world. After a few years of playing with Polaroid emulsion transfers and infrared films, she turned on to the alchemy of cyanotype and gum bichromate. While living in London, she was fortunate to be able to study the temperaprint process with the late Peter Fredrick. These days she works primarily with temperaprint and photopolymer gravure.
Barbara teaches photography at Howard Community College in Columbia, Maryland and alternative photography at Photoworks, Glen Echo Park, in Bethesda, Maryland.
“Working with alternative processes takes the joy of photography into an almost magical realm of creativity. It is the place where light, paint, ink, the human heart, and the human hand all merge together.”
