Artist Talk with Kate Breakey

Hand-coloring is a process that came into use in the early 1800s in an attempt to create more realistic images from black-and-white photographs, Since the later part of the 1900s, a resurgence in the process of hand-coloring has been seen in the work of artist-photographers, such as Kate Breakey.

Kate Breakey is internationally known for her large-scale, richly hand-colored photographs, including her acclaimed series, Small Deaths, published in 2001 by University of Texas Press. During the talk, she will discuss and present examples of her hand-colored photographs.

The Logic of the Copy

Four Decades of Photography in Print

Even before screens, photographs were everywhere. When photomechanical printing—reproducing a photograph cheaply with printmaking techniques that use a printing press and ink—took off in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, photography’s visibility expanded hugely. Photographic imagery made its way into books, newspapers, and magazines, onto posters and billboards and stamps and postcards. Photography, specifically photography in print, quickly became the dominant form of visual communication. The Logic of the Copy will bring together the work of artists working with photographs in print, beginning in 1960 and ending at the turn of the 21st century when the widespread adoption of digital means of producing and sharing images transformed photography.
