Join us for August’s First Friday Gallery Night with Kelsey Dillow!

Kelsey runs a photography darkroom at Whistlepig Farms where she practices handmade photographic processes, specifically wet plate collodion, AKA Tintypes. She also runs a mobile tintype photobooth available for events of all kinds, as well as portrait sessions, artwork documentation and more.

In her personal work, Dillow’s studio practice explores connecting and dividing lines between religion, folklore, mythmaking and Appalachian identity. Her work has been exhibited throughout the Appalachian region.
