Photography of Jellyfish on Display in Port Townsend


Jellyfish are some of the most beautiful animals in nature. Superbly designed to float with little or no propulsion.  Linda Sutton, a Port Townsend photographer, will be displaying a selection of works from three of her series at The Spice and Tea Exchange, 929 Water Street, Port Townsend beginning November 30, 2013 and continuing through the holidays. Hours are daily from 10am to 6pm. The store and display will be open during Art Walk, December 7, 5:30-8.

Included in the display: “The Jellies,” series of high contrast black and white photographs, “Edge of Day,” that special low light time that is so fabulous, and “Floral/Leaf,” the celebration of nature.

“The Jellies” are low light photographs taken at various aquariums using high speed black and white film pushed to the limit. The large prints were hand printed in a darkroom from the extremely thin negatives using a fiber-based graded paper that is no longer available.

Linda Sutton has exhibited locally at the Northwind Arts Center, Olympic Art Gallery/Quilcene, Metro Bagel/PT and Hadlock, Muskan Restaurant in Port Townsend, and Sunrise Dental in Sequim. Prior to moving to Port Townsend, her photography was exhibited throughout California.

All photographs are archivally framed by her husband, Dan Sutton, a Certified Picture Framer and former officer of the Professional Picture Framers Association.
