John Carlano stays busy running a mixed use photography studio located in The Crane Arts Building in Philadelphia.
Johns primary interest remains in a life long investigation of a fine art based image making, changing materials and content whenever it seems appropriate.
For 20 years John worked with chemically altering silver prints to achieve patinas beyond toning, manifested in portraits, still lives, and landscapes.
Currently John is discovering how digital technologies can address similar visual concerns in a way that is less toxic to the environment and his own body, photographing " photographs" of the human landscape and manipulating the image in multiple ways. Questions are asked about what is new and what is historic and what is photographic.
Originally from Richmond, Virginia, painter and illustrator Sarah Russell currently works in Philadelphia. She has exhibited collections at Dock Street Brewery, Penns Woods Winery, Marigold Kitchen, and The Velvet Shoestring.
