Gale Wisdom

As a student, one of Gale Wisdom’s first classes took place in the darkroom, where she learned about photograms. This formative experience led to her continued work with photography. Finding digital imaging an interesting science, she worked in the stock image industry for several years. Yet her connection to the experimental nature of handcrafted pictures made in the darkroom persists. The slower pace of this photographic process offers her fertile ground for creativity and exploration into the uncertain effects of light and shadow on an endless supply of subjects.
