Art: We Still Use Film at the Base Gallery

By Steve Rosen · February 24th, 2009 · CityBeat Recommends

This is a time when, because of digitalization and computer graphics, we're not always sure what constitutes a photographic print anymore. The old-fashioned notion that it is something shot with film and painstakingly developed in a darkroom from a negative is, well, old-fashioned. With that in mind, BASE Co-op Gallery honors that notion and tries to find some contemporary relevance in it.

Called We Still Use Film, it features photographs by Ashley Duban, Olivia Hamilton, Floyd Johnson, Andra Lee and Jesse Reed. All but Lee are Cincinnatians — she is from Chicago. The show attempts to honor an art form — a process — that its participants fear could be vanishing from the very landscape it has documented so well. The show is on view Friday-Sunday through March 22.
