Have you ever practiced traditional photography?
This was the first of nine questions on a survey that was handed to me at a new exhibition in the Crane Arts Building (1400 N American St.) titled “Making Contact”. This was the first exhibition curated by The Halide Project, a new photography organization that aims to support the practice of traditional and alternative photographic art. The exhibit showcases the creative breadth that is possible under the umbrella of traditional photography, with work ranging from pinhole photographs, to large format, salt prints and beyond. The show includes photography from renowned artists including Bill Armstrong, Vincent Feldman, Josh Marowitz, Tricia Rosenkilde and Sarah Van Keuren.
