The Triangle Black and White Photography group is a collection of photographers, some professional, some who teach photography, and some devoted hobbyists, who share a passion for conventional black and white photography and traditional printing methods utilizing wet darkroom technology.

The group's work reflects a desire to isolate subject matter from the visual clutter around us. This allows the viewer to concentrate on the forms and relationships among shapes that the photographer found important or attractive or interesting. The tones of black and white print interact with the shapes to enhance this isolation.

A well-crafted black and white print is beautiful in its own right, and employing the silver gelatin process reveals an astonishingly beautiful range of tones and textures, as is evident from the prints found in this exhibit.

Accompanying the exhibit is a selection of vintage cameras on loan from Southeastern Camera and Supply of Carrboro, NC.
