What we’re exhibiting:
1. Straight-from-the-Camera Watershed Originals
Last year I built a hand-made large format (8×10) camera and refined a process that allowed me to produce single, original B&W prints that come straight from the camera.
Effectively, one piece of B&W paper is loaded into the camera and processing allows a positive result – one-of-a-kind originals:
I’ve also tweaked a photo process from 1842. The cyanotype was designed to react to light when objects are placed on the cyanotype sheet (no camera involved) and exposed to sunlight.
I found a way to use the paper in a very large camera. Done properly, this process captures a landscape with the streak of the sun as it crosses the sky.
The result is a one-of-a-kind, original landscape with the sun streaking across the sky:
3. Big Watershed prints
We’ll be showing a couple of BIG, colour, mounted prints shot predominantly on medium and large format film equipment. These prints are well suited for public spaces and entrances / board rooms of corporate spaces.
4. A few prints from the archives
We’ll have some available prints from the archives – priced attractively.
There will be artwork available for all budgets.
