Chemistry Meets Creativity in "Light Sensitive" at Art Intersection in Gilbert

During an age when some think the best bit of photo technology is a selfie stick, it's refreshing to spend time surrounded by fine art photography created with old-school tools and techniques — many created during the mid-19th century.

The fourth annual "Light Sensitive" show at Art Intersection in Gilbert features 105 works created by 100 artists who use more than 20 different methods for creating handmade photographic images to produce nuanced pieces rich in detail and emotional depth.
