For This Photographer, Art Is All About Balance – Check Out the Resulting Exhibit This Weekend

The Swan Coach House, located in Buckhead on the grounds of the Atlanta History Center, offers the complete Atlanta experience. This historical building houses an art gallery, a restaurant, a gift shop, and spaces for any event. On October 26th, the Swan Coach House Gallery is pleased to present White Balance by Christina Price Washington.

In White Balance, Christina Price Washington uses and interrogates specific and commonly accepted tools that have determined how photography has historically evaluated color, lightness, and darkness. Such valuations were aesthetic decisions made in the early 20th century by pioneers of photography such as Ansel Adams, who developed the Zone System and incorporated the concept of “middle grey.”

By using a variety of digital and analog methods, Price Washington creates photographs that document subtle tonal variations that can be found within the plain, bright light of day. This exhibition presents finely printed photographs and photo-based print media that play with the concept of “white balance” within the traditions of photography. Proper camera white balance has to take into account the “color temperature” of a light source, which refers to the relative warmth or coolness of white light.

Christina Price Washington, known for her photographic abstractions and theoretical investigations, explores alternative interventions in light values, who determines them, and how they are mediated in contemporary printed methods. Her work transcends the mere physicality of a photograph in that she investigates the systems of image-making itself.

This exhibition is sponsored by Northern Trust Corporation and Wanda Hopkins and will be on display until November 7, 2019, at Swan Coach House Gallery. For more information, please call 404-266-2636 or visit www.swangallery.org.
