Featuring Lané Pittard

Artist Statement:

Lané Pittard makes exposures on medium-format, 120-mm film using an all-manual camera and a hand-held light meter. She prefers to work exclusively with existing, natural light. Using a camera with interchangeable film backs allows the choice between black-and-white or color film for each individual shot. Shots are composed full-frame, so as to eliminate the need for cropping. Black-and-white negatives are printed in the traditional, wet-process darkroom manner on fiber-based paper containing silver. Color negatives are scanned and then printed as giclée prints.

With a quietness both disarming and captivating, Lané Pittard's photographs appear to depict existing geographies and moments passed, yet are captured with a point of view that translates scenes into imagery that is dreamlike and cinematic. Interested in the photograph as object, Pittard presents her work in a way that highlights the photograph's physicality.

Artist Biography:
