Do You Know... ... Peter Rutlin?

Submitted by Cindy Davis

Now that Peter is retired as an architect, he is able to fully delve into his pursuit of his life long hobby, photography. With his wife Mary and orange tabby cat Clancy, Peter splits his time between Long Island, NY and Promised Land, PA. He thrives on the surrounding areas which offer endless year round photographic opportunities. Peter has a darkroom in both locales!

Peter is a traditionalist. He uses a wet darkroom to create by hand, silver gelatin black and white prints. He prefers to shoot film over digital, using all formats from 1/2 frame 35mm up to an 8x10 view camera. All film images are hand printed in the darkroom, no digital scanning or hybrid methods are used.

Occasionally, Peter takes some digital images. His heart, however, remains deeply seeded in the creative process of the traditional silver gelatin print. He was trained by one of Ansel Adams assistants at the infamous Yosemite darkroom, formally used by the Master himself!

Matted, unframed photos begin at $25.00. Visit The Art Factory of White Mills to see Peter's talent!
