Each work is framed in the artist's frame.

Alvin Booth creates a unique synthesis of classical nude photography -- using traditional camera and laboratory techniques as well as classical materials -- and contemporary formal approaches to the theme. Booth uses labor-intensive techniques, through which he produces grainy sepia-toned gelatin silver prints, peppered with burn marks or other calculated effects of distress. These are printed on matte paper, the texture of which evokes early photographic efforts. Taken as a whole, such effects create a pastiche of the history of the medium.
