New Work: Tema Stauffer

Most of the pictures in Tema Stauffer’s new body of work, Upstate, are made in and around Columbia County nestled along the Hudson River in upstate NY. You can see more of the work here.


In his most recent (truly astounding) work Charland resumes his explorations of the natural world while at the same time continuing to push the boundaries of darkroom possibilities. As with his previous Double Index images- last seen in his exhibition, Redshift- one sheet of paper is used as both the receiver of the information and the transmitter. In this case, specifically, the water image is folded over onto the upper portion of the paper and used as a negative to print the sky.
