Greg Wayn – our go to guy for people needing more hands on help with calibration/profiling than we can give on the phone – is a lovely guy and photo educator going way back. He’s friendly, patient and knowledgeable and has helped many of our clients lost in the early stages of colour management get up and running confidently.
Anyway, he and another Greg – Greg Neville, have an interesting show coming up at Edmund Pearce Gallery (a relatively new gallery that seems to me to have rapidly become the most interesting gallery for Photography in Melbourne). Of course we’re involved in the printing.
Here’s their blurb about it:
A joint exhibition by Greg Neville and Greg Wayn
Edmund Pearce Gallery Feb 13 – March 09
CHEMISTRY OF CHANCE

Two artists have interpreted their collection of found reject prints to explore the unique forms and colours of the emulsions. The beautiful and mysterious patterns are the product of alchemical events occuring in the darkroom, chance compositions of abstract photography
