Cheshire Scott

Cheshire Scott (b. 1967, Fargo, ND) is an Exeter, NH based photographer. Cheshire Scott uses largely expired, salvaged photographic materials obtained from defunct darkrooms. The self invented technique he employs to develop and post process his negatives and prints veers away from the conventional approach where a photograph is a window to another world. Instead, his aim is to create photographs with color and texture that become their own object and change in the way they are seen depending on the angle of view or the light reflected from them. Through using toners and developers that are modified or self invented, the otherwise black and white images are transformed into a work that has the feel of being handmade rather than produced from a machine.

“This work is a hand developed and toned fiber based, silver gelatin print from a negative created with a 4″x5″, large format camera.”

Cheshire Scott’s work was featured in ‘Critical Mass,’ on view August 12-27, 2023.
