Full Fathom Five Gallery Opens for Season

‘Incoming Wave’ by Lisa Tyson Ennis

 

Full Fathom Five Gallery recently opened its doors in Eastport, Maine showcasing wonderful artists, several of whom use photography as a medium, one being fine art photographer Lisa Tyson Ennis. 

Lisa works solely with historical photographic processes, including the beautiful 19th century processes of tintype and wet plate collodion. She has directed her large and medium format cameras towards subjects that symbolically explore the elusive passage of time and change as expressed by the concurrence of ethereal light and landscape. All silver gelatin photographs are hand printed and toned by her in her traditional wet darkroom. Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Tides Institute, the Delaware Art Museum, and the Portland Museum of Art, and has been included in more than 75 solo and group exhibitions.
