Ron Cowie: Inventory

“Inventory is Ron’s most recent body of work.  In his words: “This show catalogs some of the items belonging to my late wife, Lisa Garner. The project started as a way to simply learn a process and sort out her effects. As I handled the things that used to belong to her, what was hers became mine. Through the process of creating these images, each object’s value changed. I was able to let her go, safe in the knowledge that love survives.”

The images were made using the 19th century processes of wet plate collodion and platinum printing.  Ron has also started a printing company, (Cowie Platinum) and transforms digital images in to handmade platinum prints.  He’ll also be teaching a weekend workshop on platinum printing on November 13th and 14th at the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY.

“Inventory” closes on November 4th.
