ARTIST’S GALLERY

Silver and Salt
The photographic works of Joshua Marowitz

Silver – ‘The Tree Series’
Exhibiting in the London Grill

This series was initially created in conjunction with an exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art during a celebration of the work of Andrew Wyeth in 2006. This work speaks to the nature of all things unseen but unilaterally important to the development and growth of  existence. Using a combination of images then burned to film to create negatives, this work is printed traditionally  on Silver Fiber paper in the photographers darkroom using analog printing techniques. The prints are finalized in a sepia bath for both aesthetic and archival measures.

Salt  – ‘The Natives’
Exhibiting in Paris Wine Bar


Simply entitled “The Natives”, this body of work represents native botanical inhabitants throughout several eco-regions spanning the United States. These natural specimens often go unnoticed. The goal is to heighten our awareness of the existence of these keystone botanicals by highlighting their beauty and form, presenting it as a visual object, and removing it from it’s natural context so as to display as singularly aesthetic. Using the historic salt printing process allows the print to capture the exquisite detail and tone of these plants as well as their sensibility of regal-ness, history, and evolution that they impart. Bio-diversity, sustainable agriculture and natural conservation practices have become essential action points in urbanized areas. Education and awareness of our natural surrounding is more critical than ever. This series promotes communication, education, and allows viewers to share a conversation about environment and the photographic print.

An note about the Salt Process – Arguably the first photographic process dating back to the 19th century, the salt process holds the widest tonal value range of it’s contemporaries. Learning to work with salt is no easy task. Months of trial and error were overcome before finding a style to make successful works.
