Grounds for Development

Main Street Winter by Kurt Westbrook

Grounds for Development, an exhibit by the Alternography interest group of PhotoMidwest/CPM, is showing now through October 2014 at the Fair Trade Coffee House, back room, 418 State Street, Madison.

The unifying element in "Grounds for Development" is coffee, but not in the usual sense: all the images on display were toned with coffee or developed using Caffenol, a nontoxic, ecologically friendly photographic developer made from instant coffee crystals, washing soda, and vitamin C. 

Participants are: Kurt Westbrook, David Niergarth, Gabrielle Fine, Patricia Delter and Bob Beaverson.
