No Camera Required for these Images

April 24, 2020

The featured pieces in this article are reproductions of a few Chuck Kelton’s unique images. His work is created by the specific use of light and chemicals on tradition light sensitive photographic paper. The works are created without a camera and all are unique images. Brilliant’s printed, acrylic mounted reproductions of the work are created with the same skill and attention to detail and perfectly matches the original master prints.


His art works are represented by Sasha Wolf Projects in New York City and Von Lintel Gallery in Los Angeles, California. Chuck can also be reached through his e-mail at
