Into the Darkroom: Photography as History and Artform is a complete exploration into the technological and creative medium of photography. In addition to uncovering its origins and evolution, visitors will also learn about photographers in Gaston County, from traveling photographers before the turn of the 20th century through the digital age of photography. As photography developed, so did the artistry, creativity, and tricks of the eye. Four modern photographers (Rick Haithcox, Bae Hart, Grant Baldwin, and Emily Núñez) will display their artform to reveal the technical skill, attention to light and texture, and perspective required to take a truly stunning photograph.

Across the hall, visitors of all ages can step inside a darkroom to experience photography development, learn about trick photography, and even take a selfie with a polaroid camera.

This exhibit will be on display at the Gaston County Museum of Art & History from May 31, 2022 through July 29, 2023.

“En el cuarto oscuro: la fotografía como historia y forma de arte” es una exploración total de los aspectos tecnológicos y creativos del medio fotográfico. Además de descubrir sus orígenes y su evolución, los visitantes también pueden aprender sobre fotógrafos del condado de Gaston, desde los fotógrafos itinerantes de antes del comienzo del siglo XX hasta la era de la fotografía digital. Con el desarrollo de la fotografía, también se desarrolló el arte, la creatividad y las ilusiones visuales. Cuatro fotógrafos modernos (Rick Haithcox, Bae Hart, Grant Baldwin y Emily Núñez) exhibirán su forma de arte para revelar las competencias técnicas, la atención a la luz y la textura, y la perspectiva necesarias para tomar una fotografía realmente impresionante. Al otro lado del salón, los visitantes de todas las edades pueden ingresar a un cuarto oscuro para experimentar el revelado fotográfico, aprender sobre el trucaje fotográfico e incluso tomarse una selfie con una cámara Polaroid.

La muestra estará en exhibición en Gaston County Museum of Art & History, desde el 31 de mayo de 2022 al 29 de julio de 2023.
