While at Powerhouse Arena during the NY Photo Fest, we met Amy Burchenal who was in between portfolio reviews. She was kind enough to share her portfolio of striking Black and White images. Through the use of shadows, contrast and a subtle tonality, she achieves a very nice photographic style.
She says she goes to portfolio reviews for critique and personal growth in her photography. She does not seek gallery representation through the reviewer network but would like to have representation in the future.
I work primarily with cameras that belonged to my grandfather from the 1950’s and do all my own printing. Hopefully there will be chemicals and paper available for a while so I can continue to do what I love, the computer just isn’t the same as working in the darkroom!
The strong work speaks for its self and you can sample it at: Amy Burchenal
