Gilded by Shadows ▣ Lindsey Ross solo exhibition
Opening: 15 May, 18:00
The Studios, 38 Vörösmarty u.
Californian conceptual and fine art photographer Lindsey Ross
brings a series of wet plate collodion photographs that have been created during her Hungarian residency at Budapest ART Factory to The Studios.
In this exhibition, Lindsey Ross explores the convergence and layering of paradoxical traits in the context of Budapest. She observes the masculine and feminine, spiritual and tangible, ornate and utilitarian.
The technique used by the artist dates back from the second half of the 19th century and requires extensive attention due to its long exposure time.
