Jerry Pozniak studied photography ages ago, in the pre-digital era when film was king, at the School of Visual Arts. Ironically, he did see the value in computer generated art, as he established the “Artists Who Use Computers” group at SVA. Who knew that this was the writing on the wall for the demise of film? Three years ago he happened upon The Penumbra Foundation in New York City, and enrolled in a course in wet-plate photography. Wet-plate photography was “the” process in the late 1800’s and predates the use of film. Jerry fell in love with the slow meditative nature of wet-plate. It is “anti-digital”, as the process is entirely hand-made and one image can take as long as fifteen minutes to create. At The Penumbra Foundation, he studied with Lisa Elmaleh, Geoffrey Berliner, Jolene Lupo and Sam Dole; without their support and guidance he would not have been able to work though the technical and creative issues to produce a full body of work.
