Adrienne Moumin: Hand Printed Silver Gelatin Photographs and Unique Photo Collages


WHAT'S NEW IN THE GALLERIES

I am pleased to announce that I am represented by Robert Anderson Gallery in Denver, Colorado. Several of my Architextures photo collages are included in the inaugural exhibit New Beginnings, on display through the end of August. The work may be viewed upon request thereafter.

Please visit the gallery web site for a full catalog of the work available through the gallery: here. Robert and I met about 5 years ago when his gallery was on 57th St. in New York.

This brand-new work, along with other new collages, will be included in the upcoming show Variations: Photography and Art, opening on Friday, September 14th:

WHAT'S NEW IN VIDEO

A video interview with Ella Hilsenrath, which took place on September 21, 2017 in my New York studio, has recently been posted to Or Does It Explode. We spoke at length about my journey in art and photography, and the challenges of living in two places. The video may be viewed here.

The video may also be viewed on youtube.

The name Or Does It Explode, is derived from Langston Hughes's inspirational poem "A Dream Deferred", which speaks about the importance of personal expression and the danger of suppressing one's aspirations.

I am deeply grateful to Ella for her selfless dedication to helping women artists clarify and actualize our dearest dreams.


WHAT'S NEW IN THE DARKROOM

I've recently created a publicly-editable Google Sheet, where people worldwide can list, donate, and receive, unused darkroom equipment. The sheet is located here. While clearing out excess possessions some years back, I listed my first enlarger + a bunch of accessories on Craigslist Free Stuff. I was contacted shortly thereafter, and happily gifted the equipment.

A few days later, I was contacted by someone who was yearning for equipment, but I had nothing left to give her. I have never forgotten that, as I was once young and poor and longing to express myself photographically.

A March 20, 2017 Washington Post story by John Kelly about his late-in-life foray into analog photography, here, mentioned that he had been contacted by several readers who have equipment "collecting dust in the basement," which they'd like to give away. I've read too many sad tales on listserves and facebook groups, and have myself been witness, to enlarging equipment being thrown out as trash.

Nothing would make me happier than to see this never happen again - short of a worldwide renaissance of analog photography!
