Over this past year we have had a number of exhibitions that explored various photographic techniques and strategies. These have ranged from the Silver Prints of Magnum Photographer Leonard Freed to the Pin Hole Visions of Dan McCormack and Bill Guild. With Photographer Chad Kleitsch, we shall be exploring Scanography by one of its pioneers. Chad Kleitsch explores the BOTANICAL MIND with more than 40 amazing images of Flowers and Leaves. Make believe that you are a Bee and enjoy the visual, sensual, architectural, etc. majesty of these gifts of nature. Kleitsch’s techniques get you up close and personal with roses, peonies, Irises, etc. like no Hasselblad could ever accomplish.
THE BOTANICAL MIND
Chad Kleitsch received his BA in photography at Bard College in Annandale-onHudson, NY in 1991. While working in the nearby Zen Monastery, Kleitsch came across their office scanner and began experimenting with Scanner Photography. Scanography today is like the Polaroid Instant Cameras of the 1970s. Serious photographers didn’t take to the darkroom-in-a-camera approach at first, but by the 1980s many of the world’s top photographers owned a polaroid. Ansel Adams was one of the early explorers of Instant Photography.

Other photographers and artists soon followed and they included Chuck Close, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Lucas Samaras, Helmut Newton, Eve Sonneman, etc.
Chad Kleitsch took to the world of plants and they took to him. His Scanner Photographs are in the collections of the Samuel Dorsky Museum, Woodstock Center for Photography, Citibank, Mansfield University and other corporate collections. Kleitsch’s Scanner Photographs have appeared in The Camera Club of New York, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ariel Meyerowitz Gallery, Carrie Haddad Gallery, Stephen Cohen Gallery, The Art Institute of Chicago, etc. In October 2013, Kleitsch’s Scanner Photographs will be hanging in Grand Central Station in NYC. In October 2013, Kleitsch’s “WATER” series of Photographs will be hanging in Grand Central Station in NYC as part of the traveling
photography exhibition: ON TIME AND PLACE: Celebrating Scenic Hudson’s First 50 Years.
