September 6 - September 29, 2007
Photographer Dianne Kornberg's work is included in the collections of the Art Museum at Princeton
University, the International Center for Photography, the Seattle Art Museum and the Portland Art Museum
and most recently the U.S. Embassy in Belize.
In the exhibition Out-of-Print, Dianne Kornberg has carefully selected significant pieces from her archive
of black and white silver gelatin photographs. Kornberg is no longer working in black and white, which
makes this work, dating from 1992, exceptionally rare. Considered one of the most fastidious photographers
and printers ever, Kornberg focused her lens on objects which she found compelling. Much like her Marine
Algae Project (2003-2004), the early black and white work portrays specimens. These black and white
images are often more challenging in that they depict bones of animals and fetuses, and result in the
portrayal of the beauty seen in life and death.
Out-of-Print is on view in concurrence with Field Notes: Photographs by Dianne Kornberg, 1992-2007, on
view September 10 - October 24, 2007 at The Art Gym at Marylhurst University, which is accompanied by a
120-page hardcover book with 70 reproductions of works in the exhibition.
