Photo Center Installation Features Traditional and Antique Photography
For the month of November, the Santa Clarita Center for Photography will be featuring “Silver Prints: A Survey of Traditional and Antique Photography” by local photographer and instructor, Tony Zinnanti. The installation features prints created from a variety of photographic techniques, including dry plate formulas from the 1800s and negatives produced with Zinnanti’s one hundred year old 8×10 camera.
While the Santa Clarita Valley Center for Photography largely centers around ever advancing digital technology, the center touts its expertise with traditional and fine art processes. Zinnanti’s personal darkroom is a satellite element of the photo center.
The installation, which consists of twelve hand printed black and white photos, features scenes of Santa Clarita, including haunting images of Mentryville cast from glass plate negatives.
The Santa Clarita Center for Photography is open for viewing during regular business hours, on weekends and by appointment.
