Multiple Exposures Gallery is pleased to present Lingering Glimpses, a solo exhibition by Soomin Ham. The show will be on view from October 20 to November 28, 2021.

About the Work
Lingering Glimpses is an ongoing project commemorating American soldiers who passed away in Iraq and Afghanistan. This project began with an online search for images of young men and women who were lost to the great sadness of these wars. Traditional darkroom methods were used to create black and white silver gelatin prints. Reflecting the loss of lives cut short, the film was processed using an expired developer and no fixer. This method results in photographs with unpredictable lives of their own as the images slowly fade and pass away.
