Press Release

 

Vandebrug's photo-based works include both conventional and unconventional printing techniques such as pigment transfers and silver-gelatin prints, both on the hand-made and hand-coated Washi as well as the more traditional Barite papers. The susceptibility and fragility of the Japanese paper (Washi), which often parallels his subject matters, led to Vandebrug's embrace of imperfection and accidents that go against the photographic tradition of producing and preserving unblemished prints.
