I went to the opening of their current show last night.
New York photographer John Delaney is showing Golden Eagle Nomads, portraits of Kazakh hunters in Mongolia. (Delaney explained that his subjects had been driven out of Kazakhstan by the soviets.)
I found both bodies of work fascinating as well as beautiful in their own ways. The prints are stunning and both photographers stressed the importance of the physicality of the printmaking for them, despite obvious differences. Delaney, who works as a darkroom technician and has printed for the likes of Richard Avedon, is using traditional wet darkroom methods. Tepavcevic whole process is digital, with archival ink jet prints as the final outcome.
