Pictura Gallery will be giving an opening reception and artist talk with photographer Robert Calafiore with his show "Seeing in the Dark" starting 5 p.m this Friday, according to Visit Bloomington’s website.
Calafiore, a photographer based out of Connecticut, uses a hand-built pinhole camera to create c-prints, or chromogenic prints, which are full-color prints made using traditional chemicals and processes to create an image. Calafiore’s interest in traditional processes and materials, as well as the stories told by everyday objects, help his work in the studio, according to his website.
Vibrant still-life photos show the reaction between chemistry and light. Through this type of work, Calafiore is able to create a pause, a stop in the pace and a longer look into everyday life, according to his website.
The artist talk with Calafiore will begin at 7 p.m. during the opening reception at the gallery. The event is free, and more information on Calafiore’s work and Pictura Gallery can be found at the gallery’s website.
