LAKE POWELL, Photographs by Ann Pallesen

 


ARTIST STATEMENT

I am drawn to the intricacies and wonder of lush and ornate environments. I often focus on land and water, botanicals, figures and animals found near and abroad. Having an appreciation for pictorialism and photography from the turn of the 19th century, I find lith printing an intriguing process to express my vision. The warm tones, hard shadows and soft highlights of lith prints create a timeless atmosphere of delicacy and nostalgia. I shoot with vintage and plastic cameras.

This form of lith printing is not to be mistaken with lith film or lithographic prints from stones. It is an analog printing process in the darkroom. There are too many variables to duplicate an exact print each time. Each print is unique.
