About Blue Mitchell
- Founding Editor, Diffusion: Unconventional Photography
- Curator/Founder, Plates to Pixels Gallery
Blue Mitchell is an independent publisher, curator, and photographer. Based in Portland, Oregon, he has been involved with many facets of the photographic arts. Mitchell received his BFA from Oregon College of Art & Craft, where he studied photography. Since then, he has curated and juried several photography exhibitions, created an online photography gallery (platestopixels.com), and launched a new fine art photography magazine called Diffusion. Most recently Mitchell was invited to jury the 2010 Photolucida Critical Mass as well as serve as a reviewer at the 2010 PhotoNola in New Orleans and Photolucida in 2011.
Mitchell’s online curatorial project, Plates to Pixels (founded in 2007), bridges the gap between antiquated photographic processes and new digital media. Every month the gallery showcases and interviews artists working in these seemingly polarized mediums. Plates to Pixels also hosts a annual guest juried exhibit, other themed invitational group exhibitions, and a new moving images section titled eMotion.
In 2009, Mitchell successfully published the first volume of Diffusion, an annual photography magazine featuring artists working with “unconventional” processes. Diffusion has doubled in size from volume one to volume two, featuring portfolios with interviews, a variety of photography related articles, a themed group showcase, book and dvd reviews, artists to watch, and other many other special features. Diffusion is unique because it showcases alternative-process photography and other unconventional photography not seen in other magazines or publications.
Mitchell also curates and organizes physical exhibitions including the annual Diffusion Gala and Exhibition and most recently Dream Allegory a six person exhibition at LightBox Photographic Gallery and Fine Printing.
