‘Silver Gelatin Prints’ By Fred DiGiovanni

It’s hard to find photographers who work with black and white film these days, but Fred DiGiovanni is one of them. It’s even more rare to discover someone who also processes, prints, mounts and frames those photos. “I feel invested in the image from the minute I see it to the moment I can share the magic I see in it with others,” he said. “I feel committed to the entire process to make sure the beauty I see is relayed as authentically as possible.” Because of his studies with Ansel Adams’ protégé John Sexton, many of his photographs feature majestic landscapes, but he is equally known for his urban shots. His most recent trip was to Kenya. —Jo Anne Triplett
