Filter Photo is pleased to announce our accepted artists for our 7th juried exhibition, The Enigmatic Object, at Johalla Projects. Culled from over 400 entries, jurors Kyohei Abe and Caroline Picard did a fantastic job of making a cohesive selection of stellar photographic and time-based works that entertain the uncanny and unpredictable proclivities in inert things.
Join us at the opening reception on Friday, March 7th from 5:30-8:00 PM at Johalla Projects, 1821 West Hubbard Street, Ste. 209 in Chicago.
Congrats to all accepted artists and thank you to everyone who submitted!

NIU Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Student portraits. Special thanks to these wonderful people for letting me in their studios. Be sure to check out their work.
carl-alfonzo asked: Hi Juan, how are you lighting these 8x10 environmental portraits? Nice work! Thanks.
Thank you for the kind words. The setups are as minimal as possible. That is just because it is a pain to move a ton of equipment. I have mostly used two smallish monolights (400ws and 300ws). Typically the mainlight has a softbox with a grid, and the other light will have a grid or snoot on them. It totally depends on my relationship with the subject, their environment, and the space available. They are a lot of work to make, but are just as much fun.
16x20” Ambrotype of my wife and me. Huge thanks to her for supporting me with my experiments.
16x20” view camera mark II is almost done. A few tweaks including a yet to be resolved solution for bellows and I will be ready to go.
16x20” ambrotypes. Bess Mueller (Fuertes) was willing, but the light was not. Hopefully she will be up for another shoot.
16x20” Ambrotypes. Thanks to Blaine Bradford for doing his best Robert Redford pose. Blaine has always been interested in what ever crazy idea I have next, and has always been willing to lend his rugged good looks.
16x20 Ambrotype. I don’t like to post failures, but this one is a first test of a new lens, camera, and chemistry. So it’s kind of cool. Special thanks to Danielle Wagner for helping out as the light was falling. We missed the good light, I accidentally kicked the rear standard taking Danielle out of focus, and dropped the film holder. But it still resulted in an okay image.
