James Sedwick
James Sedwick (American, 1946-) raised in the countryside of Western Pennsylvania, James studied the sciences at Gannon University and moved to Buffalo in 1968 for graduate studies in chemistry at SUNY. Thirty years ago he returned to SUNY to study in the counseling program. In 2015, he retired from clinic and hospital work as a psychotherapist. Since high school he has made photographs; he shows his work with the Buffalo Society of Artists and WNY Artists Group/Art Dialogue Art Gallery. His work is in private and public collections and has appeared in The Sun and Orion magazines, Stream Ticket, LensWork Extended #99, and Looking at Images. His poetry has appeared in several journals and books including Uncharted Lines: Poems from the Journal of the American Medical Association and drawings in Keeping Time: 150 Years of Journal Writing.

Artist Statement: James Sedwick

With photography, two approaches occur to me: I want to see what things in the world look like photographed (to paraphrase Garry Winogrand), and I want to make images that prompt associations to the spirit.

Almost 10 years ago I began photographing Amaryllis plants grown from bulbs in our home, the flowering and photography welcome during winter and holidays. The photographs were made because I was (and continue to be) in awe of the beauty of this plant and the spiritual refreshment it gives; and, indeed, I wanted to see what it looked like photographed.

How the images are prepared for others to view is more important to me than the equipment I use to record the light. Working in the darkroom with chemistry, in particular, making black and white images with the Ziatype process, the printing out of an image with palladium metal on heavy rag paper, produces matte images that include all the vagaries of a hand process.

Process:

These photographs were made in a darkroom by contact-printing a film negative the size of the image on a sheet of rag paper sensitized with lithium chloropalladite and ferric ammonium oxalate. Exposure to ultraviolet light produces an image formed of palladium metal particles embedded in the paper surface, a printing-out process called Ziatype. Several washings, drying and pressing produce the finished photograph.
