These prints are all photopolymer gravure images.
The print, Ruth, is an example of “painting with light” photography, a fascinating technique. The original photograph was shot in a completely darkened room in front of a black background. My camera, on a tripod, was set for an indefinite exposure as I “painted” my subject with a mag flashlight. I shut the flashlight off and asked my model to turn her head, first one way and then the other. I continued “painting” with the flashlight until I felt I had done enough, and ended the exposure.
The other four images are also photopolymer gravure etchings made from photographs shot while on a trip to Cuba in January.

Originally from New York City, Judy Bergman Hochberg settled in the Boston area after receiving her B.F.A. and M.F.A. degrees from Boston University. Although trained as a painter, she developed a love of printmaking early in her artistic life. At various times her prints encompassed most of the traditional forms, including etching, monotype, dry point and collagraph. Her most recent work reflects her concentration in the area of digital photography and polymer plate photogravure.

Her work is in the permanent collections of the Boston Athenaeum, the Boston Public Library, Duxbury Art Complex Museum, Fidelity Investments, Fogg Art Museum, Hebrew Senior Life, Wheaton College, and the Worcester Art Museum. She is a member of the Boston Printmakers, Photographic Resource Center, and the American Color Print Society.
