BRIEF ABOUT: The Museum has commissioned a group of photographers, best known for their use of historic processes, includes Abelardo Morell from Brookline, Massachusetts (camera obscura), Keliy Anderson-Staley from Guilford, Maine and currently in Russellville, Arkansas (wet-plate collodion), Brenton Hamilton from Rockland, Maine (gum bichromate), Tillman Crane from Camden, Maine (platinum prints), and Alan Vlach from Trenton and Portland, Maine (salted paper prints), to produce images of the Homer Studio, located in Prouts Neck, Maine, to include architectural studies, views of the landscape, interior scenes, and even still-life subjects of the few objects that survive from Homer’s day. The group’s work on view, in some cases modified through the digital process, is in conjunction with, Weatherbeaten: Winslow Homer and Maine, the exhibition of Homer’s late paintings showing through December 30, 2012.
