Englewood Camera Club goes old-school


The Englewood Camera Club continues its successful presentations by professional photographers with a special niche.

On Nov. 12, Quinn Jacobson will speak about his work in historic photographic process, specifically the wet Collodion process (1891), which he used in three special projects.

Jacobson, who also works in daguerrotypy (1839) and Calotypy (1839), will present comments on his techniques and perspectives on his work.

Following military service that included work as a combat photographer (1982-1988), he attended college, including an MFA in photography from Goddard College in Vermont.

His first project was “Portraits from Madison Avenue” (2003-2006), which centered on people and places in the margins of society. Quinn refers to his “tripod of concepts: memory, identity and difference.”

He next lived in Germany, where he attempted, as an American Jew, to come to terms with the past, recording portraits, landscapes and significant locations, which he exhibited in Paris in 2010.

His “The American West Portraits,” made in Denver, was also exhibited in Paris (2012) and he is working on a new project: “Ghost Dance: American Massacre Sites.”

His website is StudioQ.com.

He has traveled in Europe, “evangelizing and teaching the Collodion process” and has published four books.

The longstanding Englewood Camera Club welcomes guests and prospective members. It meets on the second Tuesday of the month at Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit, 6400 S. University Blvd., Centennial. Contact: Steve Johnson, 303-378-5102, stevej@comcast.net.
