BOSI Contemporary, on the Lower East Side, is presenting New Photogenic Drawings, featuring photograms by Chuck Kelton and diazotypes by Eric William Carroll. Both artists are showing bodies of work and artist books that draw on the legacies of early pioneers in the photographic practice — such as Anna Atkins, Carleton Watkins and Timothy O’Sullivan — and present a compelling new vision through unique works that are irreproducible and made without negatives.

Carroll’s diazotypes (above) are created by his mitigation of light and photosensitive paper in situ in nature, while Kelton’s masterful photograms are created in a darkroom, at times devoid of anything botanical or environmental in the process.

In addition to their unique prints, the exhibition features books by both artists; Eric William Carroll’s Blue Line of Woods, a limited edition artist book, measuring 11″ x 9″ x 1.5″, composed of accordion bound pigment ink prints with an unfixed gelatin silver print on cover, and Chuck Kelton’s artist folio, Night after Night, comprising nine unique, hand toned, photograms. Bosi Contemporary, 48 Orchard Street, just south of Grand, NY, NY.
