Closing Reception PJ Sturdevant: Remembering 1975–1980 [FotoFocus Biennial]

Closing Reception & Neighborhood Day

Remembering 1975–1980 is a collection of prints by PJ Sturdevant created using the traditional Bromoil process between 1975 and 1980 on 35mm film. Reviewing his archive of more than one thousand 35mm negatives helped Sturdevant remember this time period and relfect on how things have changed, like Martin Street. Now renamed Adams Crossing, it was once a street with a church, junk shops, and residential properties. Many of the subjects in Sturdevant’s archive no longer exist or have been significantly changed.

Bromoil was one of the favorite and beloved processes of the pictorialists and salon exhibition photographers during the first half of the 20th-century. No exhibition of the pictorialist photographic arts was without lovely, soft, and painterly Bromoil prints. These prints were handcrafted and produced using brushes and lithographic ink making each print unique.
