Experimental Photography with Jessica Kalmar
Digital Imagers – 1102 Scaife Hall
January 5, 2014   1:15 p.m.

AgWorks member Jessica Kalmar will present a talk on experimental photography at the Digital Imagers meeting on Sunday, January 5.  Primarily an analog photographer, Kalmar makes most of her work in the darkroom creating traditional silver gelatin prints using alternative processes such as dageurreotypes, tintypes,  and gum prints. Kalmar also experiments with camera formats (Holga, 4×5, pinhole) or devices to make a seemingly “perfect” camera into more of a tool with various results (e.g. attaching a mirrored prism to a Hasselblad). Kalmar say that these experiments are useful in her ongoing statement about linking perceptions with reality.

The talk will take place at 1:15 pm in Pitt’s Scaife Hall, Room 1102.  More information can be found on the Digital Imagers website at
