Khaki Gallery presents ‘Day & Night’

Khaki Gallery, 9 Crest Road, is presenting “Day & Night,” by Mara Brod and Elizabeth Jerome through June 15.

In this exhibition, Brod takes the viewer on a daylight journey through the suburbs, while Jerome travels into the darkness where unexpected surprises awaits them in the lonely night hours.

Brod graduated from the New England School of Photography in Boston in 2004 and lives in Somerville. All pictures in this series are C-prints, hand-printed by the artist from negatives in the darkroom without any digital manipulation. The warm color palette and soft focus are intentional.

Jerome, originally from Dallas, graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 2006. Her extensive travels have taken her to live in New York, Boston, and Detroit areas, where as a newcomer, she uses her camera as a means to tour her new local during the lonely hours of the night. The photographs are taken with 35 mm or medium format Kodak 400 speed film, processed straight and printed in the darkroom. The images are shot without flash or tripod, using the landscape to steady the camera fro the long exposures.
