      Made with sweat and tears, literally

      Matthew Brandt incorporates the elements of his subject into the making—or unmaking—of his photographs. From lake water to sweat to saliva to tears, particles of the world in which he photographs influence the making of the print. 

      His photographs are now on view (with 5 other contemporary photographers) in Light, Paper, Process open through September 6.
