ChemoToxic, I Am That and Other Stories – representing photographer Willie Osterman’s documentation of his wife Michele’s chemotherapy and his fears that the disease might be lurking within his own body – will be presented at the Visual Studies Workshop beginning with an opening reception and fundraiser on May 3, 2013 from 6-9pm. The wet plate collodian process used by Osterman, an antiquated photographic technique developed in the 1850s, resulted in one-of-a-kind images printed on glass plates known as ambrotypes. You can shave your head and be photographed as part of Osterman's project as well as pledge money to support cancer patients. Proceeds from the opening event will benefit patients at Pluta Cancer Center, Rochester, NY.
