Stuart Skalka shoots B&W and color using film and digital cameras: 35mm, medium format and 4X5. His aesthetic is to do as little post processing as possible, except when he converts color digital images to black & white or oversaturates colors.
In 2019, through October, he has exhibited in 16 art shows including Manhattan, Brooklyn, Wichita, LA, San Francisco, Tampa, Orlando, Atlanta, Kansas City, Johnson City, Reno and Portland OR. Two of Stuart Skalka’s photos were published in the Abstract (June) issue of ArtAscent. He has had solo shows in Reno (2015) and Las Vegas (2013).
Stuart Skalka strives to expand the scope of his photography. He has been shooting with a 4X5 camera for the last year. In June, Stuart Skalka participated in a palladium printing workshop at the Weston Collective in Monterey, CA. The Weston Collective is run by Kim and Zach Weston, the grandson and great grandson of Edward Weston respectively.
