The Project

The Halide Project is a new organization dedicated to emulsion-based photography, and we need help putting on our first show!

In December 2015, we are inviting four artists working with a variety of chemical-based photographic media to show their work at the Crane Arts building in Philadelphia for our inaugural exhibit entitled "Making Contact."

Featuring work by Bill Armstrong, Vincent Feldman, Joy Goldkind, and Tricia Rosenkilde, Making Contact will offer greater Philadelphia residents the chance to view fine silver gelatin, chromogenic, bromoil, and platinum/palladium prints crafted by these highly-regarded contemporary artists. 

In addition, we're putting together an array of exciting educational opportunities that will be free to the public

Vincent Feldman will be giving a photographic lecture discussing his work from City Abandoned, Joy Goldkind will be doing a demonstration of the unique bromoil process, and Tricia Rosenkilde will be teaching interested students how to make a pinhole camera.

The space is booked, the work is framed, and the artists are ready... we just need your help to fund our free public programming. 

About The Halide Project

Founded by Alex Orgera and Dale Rio, The Halide Project is a new organization dedicated to fostering traditional and alternative photographic arts. 

Starting in Philadelphia but maintaining a global outlook, plans for future programming include emulsion-based photographic exhibits, traditional and alternative photography workshops, a community darkroom workspace, a mobile darkroom for educational outreach, and an artist residency.

Backer Rewards

We're excited to offer a variety of ways to engage with the exhibit for donors at every level. 

Are you local? If you donate $25, you'll be invited to our special champagne preview reception with the artists on Friday, December 4th!

Local donors of $100 can also receive a semi-private tour of the exhibit, guided by one of our curators

For our non-local donors, you can receive online access to videos of our educational programming for donations of $10, $25, or $50.

$50 donors can now receive these two limited edition Halide Project exclusive prints!

Risks and challenges

For the most part, our line-up is set. The artists are ready, the space is reserved, and we are good to go.

That said, our ability to make this event a reality depends on your donation, as well as the cooperation of our community of artists and curators.

One challenge will be getting the word out about the event and making sure that the public is aware of and excited about our free educational programming. But again, that's where you come in!

Even if you aren't able to contribute at this time, we hope to see you at the event to learn more about the unique beauty of emulsion-based photography!
