Ryan Gallery is excited to present the portfolios Hawaii Leaves, Alaska, Scotland, and Maui, by Arizona photographer, Randy Efros. In his thirty-five years as a photographer, Efros captured his vision on film and created prints for these portfolios in his studio darkroom.
Ryan Gallery presents four portfolios, distilled from his collection of over fifteen portfolios, for this exhibition focusing attention on the value portfolios bring to collectors of contemporary photography. Visitors to this exhibition will experience Efros’ work, exquisitely printed in black and white gelatin silver and platinum/palladium, presented framed on the gallery walls and viewable in complete portfolio sets, transforming the experience of individual work compared to its impact as a whole.
Join us for a special Artist Talk evening with Efros to learn more about his background, creative vision, and his portfolios. Collectors of photography will find this informal talk delivers an insight to the value of collecting portfolio sets and individual prints.
