In Extending Tradition 2 LightBox celebrates the work of photographers shooting with large format film or plates, generally 4 x 5 inches and larger, giving recognition to those whose interest and talent follow the masterful path of traditional large format film photography. This is the second time LightBox features the work of photographers using the traditional tools and methods from the early days of photography. These photographers find reward in the practice and their work method is disciplined and results in distinctively unique photographs. The Exhibit includes many styles of imagery and prints in many processes from Pigment Ink to all analog processes, such as Silver Gelatin and other varied Alternative Processes.

LightBox was honored to have Stu Levy as juror for the exhibit. Stu Levy was one of the founders of the Photography Council of the Portland Art Museum and was the Council President from 2003 to 2006. He is also on the Board of Directors of Photolucida and the Pacific Northwest Photographers Archive. Stu studied with Ansel Adams and was an assistant instructor for Ansel’s worksops in Yosemite and Carmel, and also taught at the Ansel Adams Gallery Workshops. Stu lives in Portland, Oregon, and teaches photography workshops on the Oregon Coast.

“Extending Tradition 2” will be on display in the gallery through September 10th. Please visit the gallery during the month to see the collection of work. Complete show info is on the LightBox website at
