Gowanus Darkroom presents Portraits from the New Jazz Age, a film photography and alternative process group exhibition featuring images shot entirely at the Jazz Age Lawn Party over the past 5 years and beyond.  Showcasing work from several photographers, this exhibit consists of images made using a variety of photographic and print mediums.  The photographers have attempted to capture the energy of the people and the day in a way that represents the spirit and vigor of the event, employing traditional film photography, silver prints, palladium prints, cyanotypes, instant film and motion picture film.

The Jazz Age Lawn Party, a summer celebration of the music, mirth and fashion of the 1920s, is a unique event that inspires and brings together people from all walks of life.  An amazing place to people watch and observe, this event is a portrait photographer's paradise.  There is a palpable mirth, an infectious energy that manifests itself in every smile, every shared laugh and every note played. 

We are pleased to present as part of the show a special painted cutout installation by Susan Sills in conjunction with the Art Slope Festival
