Synopsis: Gary Briechle makes portraits of his family and friends in the small towns and rugged terrain that hug the Maine coast. Briechle photographs using large-format cameras and the wet-plate collodion process. He works with a portable darkroom on location in the driveways, living rooms and backyards of his subjects, deliberately forgoing the predictability of the studio. When making a photograph he hopes for an image, which is something other than he intended. He says of his work: the tension between the demands of the process and the demands of the moment make each successful image more a gift given, not a photograph taken.
About the Author: Having been a sculptor for many years, Gary Briechle has an appreciation for surfaces and materials. His non-photographic work can be found in the Jersey City Museum, The Hunterdon Museum of Art, and the New Jersey State Museum. Briechle has been working with photography for 13 years but continues to be drawn to textures and much of his photographic work, layers the intricacies of skin with the blemishes inherent to wet-plate collodion.
