Photographer Mark Sink says his current show, Mark Sink Photographs 1975-2010: Encounters With the Past, at the Byers-Evans House Gallery, isnt so much a retrospective as it is a survey of techniques hes used over the years, from lo-fi toy and Diana cameras to the colloidion wet-plate process he works with today. Although its not always obvious to the layman, process is what art photography is really all about. A mash-up of portraits, landscapes and still lifes from different periods of Sinks career, the show stays on view through October 31.
