Artist Reception Saturday, October 22 | 4 – 6 PM
On View: Through October 30
The Resource Exchange presents works by artist Dale Rio.
Dale Rio is a photographer who, after years of photographing people, places, and things that touched her personally, has shifted her focus to projects that address more universal issues, such as man’s place within a greater historical context, our attitudes toward the planet and its resources, and the transitory nature of the very things that we perceive to be permanent. In addition to these issues, Dale feels very strongly about utilizing and preserving traditional photographic methods. For her fine art work, she shoots exclusively in film and has recently been exploring alternative and historic processes, such as platinum/palladium printing and pinhole photography.
In an effort to support other photographers working in traditional processes and encourage people to learn about traditional photography, Dale co-founded The Halide Project, a Philadelphia-based non-profit that holds exhibitions and organizes affordable educational programming pertaining to film and alternative process photography. The organization’s long-term goals include a community darkroom and residency program. More information on The Halide Project can be found here.
