Drawing on Exposure

Palladium prints by Roger Matsumoto

Roger Matsumoto is a photographer currently working primarily in hand-coated printmaking. His preferred medium is the palladium print, but Matsumoto also works with salt prints and cyanotypes. These prints, along with silver gelatin and dye-destruct color prints (Ciba/Ilfochromes) have been exhibited in over 120 juried shows and one-person exhibits. Locations for his exhibits have been from New York City to Seattle to Louisiana, and London, England.

Matsumoto has prints in museums such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Utah Museum of Fine Art and the Buddy Holly Center in Lubbock, Texas. His prints are also in collections at the Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Kansas City, The Free Library of Philadelphia and the Salt Lake International Airport. Both prints from a collection of his work at the Philadelphia Museum of Art were included in “The Silver Garden‚” a show which ran from February to July in 2005.

Matsumoto is a recipient of an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Delaware Division of Arts. He was also a Challenge Exhibitor in the Samuel Fleisher Art Memorial series of exhibitions in Philadelphia in 2007. In addition to printmaking, Matsumoto has served as a juror for the Delaware Division of Arts, Phillips Mill Photography Exhibition in New Hope, Pa., and the Newark (Delaware) Arts Alliance.
