Photo Scanography/The Art of Scanning

Creating an image using a flatbed scanner.

March 17- April 15, 2017

 Create digital images using a flatbed scanner instead of a camera.

Painting on the flatbed scanner is also a possibility. After the image is completed on the scanner photo editing can then be applied if you choose.

 Use your creative abilities and scan something new.

 Juror: Niza Knoll

Juror and gallery owner Niza Knoll has been making photographs and other art for many years. She has enjoyed using the scanner to experiment with creating images since 2009. She arranges items to create a pleasing compositions resulting in crisp, dramatic, undistracted images that depict the simultaneous stillness and energy of an object. She prints the resulting scans on photographic paper and presents them in a large format. She continues to explore new ways to use the flatbed scanner as a creative tool.
