Black Swan Photo Gallery: The Modern Photographic Print Gallery of the Midwest

At Black Swan Photo Gallery, located at 60 W. Pine St., it’s possible to capture moments and experiences from all over the world from here in the Midwest to Europe — all for free.  They are Zionsville’s premier photography-only gallery and specialize in large format work. 

Photographers Kevin Swan and Shaun Austin Gordon, both Zionsville residents, opened the gallery in September 2011 after wanting to be involved with the community.  They actually had only started to look for space in the summer of 2011 when things just fell into place very quickly and they were able to make their dream come alive.

"We print everything we have in-house," Ashley Judd, gallery manager, said.  "Everything on our walls was printed in studio."

The ability to print in their studio is what sets them apart from other photo galleries.  They print the work in 12 inches by 18 inches, 20 inches by 30 inches and 35 inches by 52 inches.

Additional to printing work from artists to put on display, Black Swan is able to do print jobs for people such as posters and photography.  They have a large printer capable of printing up to 42 inches wide and 100 feet long.

Pricing for print jobs is available upon request and Judd said the turn around time is 24 hours.

"My advice for someone who wants a big print is to bring us a large file," Judd said. "Most JPEG photos, even if they are small, will still print well up to 20 inches by 30 inches."

Also, any inquiring artists are welcome to submit work to them for consideration to be included in the gallery. 

Black Swan currently features a variety work from seven different photographers from Zionsville and Indianapolis to Mississippi, Georgia and California.

"People don’t think they’re real," Judd said about some responses they have heard from visitors about the photography. "They are so beautiful, people almost don’t believe it."
