digital archival pigment print
11 x 8
|Donna Gilhousen is a Eugene fine art photographer whose series of scanograms extend historic darkroom-processed photograms, a source of inspiration, into a digitized form. She calls them "scanograms" to denote photographs captured without a camera, subjects confined within a miniature photostudio on a scanner platen rather than on a traditional light-sensitized sheet of photo paper. The final digitally processed archival print is intended to achieve a rather illusory reality, intricately detailed subjects floating in eerie light, specimens for reflective study.
Donna is active in promoting fine art photography through board memberships in Emerald Photographic Society and Photography at Oregon, and exhibits with PhotoZone, a collective of photographers devoted to the photographic print.
