The Ojai Photography Community welcomes fine art photographer Lindsey Ross, presenting “Guided by Shadows”
Ross represents a new generation of photographers who are seeking contemporary artistic possibilities in nineteenth-century photographic techniques. In her illustrated presentation, she will cover her work in the wet plate collodion process, one of the earliest methods of photography. This demanding process produces one-of-a-kind photographs that have a detailed, haunting beauty.
Currently, she is creating a new archetype of the American West by upending the conventional interpretation of the landscape as rugged, masculine and something to be tamed or commodified. Her images bring the presence of the feminine into the landscape, revealing a sense of its fragility.
Ross’s images have been exhibited widely and two documentaries about her work were featured at major film festivals: “Alchemistress” at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival 2013 and “Lindsey Ross: A Less Convenient Path,” at the 2017 Banff Mountain Film Festival.
