Jill Enfield is a photographer, author, and professor working in New York. Her two books: Photo Imaging: A Complete Guide To Alternative Processes , and Jill En field's Guide to Alternative Processes: Popular Historical and Contemporary Techniques, are both award winning books.Enfield strives to make her portraits tangible displays of heritage, genealogy, homeland, and transition. Some of today's "New Americans," have an easier physical journey by air than their predecessors did in steerage, but their risks are just as great, their fears just as valid. In each of the wet-plate collodion images, The New Americans are heroes, each with his or her own inspirational story.
Diane Farris is an artist/photographer working in Gainesville, Florida. Her work has been widely collected and published, with several public commissions and books. Farris expresses her approach to photography: "I strive to be present with my work in this time, our time, while honoring what came before - and considering what we will leave to our children and grand-children. I am currently working with images of books and people, home, nature and sustainability and the Castelli Romani area of Italy, as well as exploring handmade books." shows in 2018 were in Basel, Switzerland and at the Palazzo Chigi in Ariccia, Italy, "Nella Luce del Presente".
