Keliy Anderson-Staley’s Summer Darkroom Updates!

Summer Darkrooms:
Travel and New Projects

My summer began with a couple weeks as an artist-in-residence at the Hampshire College Creative Media Institute, where I taught a workshop and made some new work. The personal highlight for me was having the opportunity to photograph Michael Lesy and Elaine Mayes.

After the Creative Media Institute, I set up a darkroom in a trailer on my mother’s property in Maine to make portraits and to do some photogram experiments.
