Gallery Artist Robert Burley's Book “The Disappearance of Darkness: Photography at the End of the Analog Era” Discussed in a New York Times Blog

 

Author David Gonzalez discussed Robert Burley's book The Disappearance of Darkness: Photography at the End of the Analog Era in yesterdays New York Times blog "Lens: Photography, Video and Visual Journalism."

"...Those same emotions — of joy, confusion, excitement and, yes, loss — are vividly evoked by Robert Burley’s book “The Disappearance of Darkness: Photography at the End of the Analog Era.” In it, he chronicles the breakneck speed at which film and the huge factories where it was produced have almost vanished. He has pulled back the curtains and taken the viewer into places where film, paper and chemicals were cloaked in darkness — both literal and legal. Using a 4-by-5 film camera whose technology itself harkens to the 19th century, he has produced a meditative and loving look at an industry that has imploded like the dozens of factories that have vanished into rubble and empty lots."
