Nickie Stone | Sea Islands
On Display: January 12 – February 3, 2018
Opening: Friday, January 12, 5-8pm
Using a 160-year-old photographic technique known as the collodion wet plate, or “ambrotype” process, Charleston-based photographer Nickie Stone captures one-of-a-kind images of the low-country landscape onto glass panels.
In her debut solo exhibition, Sea Islands, Nickie Stone presents a new body of photographic works created from deep within the marshes and waterways of the coastal islands of South Carolina. The scenes of Stone’s wet-plate photographs enact senses of immersive serenity and solitude, transferring the fast-paced modern-day viewer into a world where time seemingly stands still.
Sea Islands will feature a variety of singular 8″ x 10″ wet plate photographs, as well as works with multiple plates, mounted together to form panoramic and large-scale scenes.
