I get bored easily…
So I am always looking for new and not-yet-done innovations with cameras or camera-like devices.
After your feedback and sales at The New Art Festival I am excited about the direction I am going with my work.
Large Format – One-of-a-Kind Works
More and more, I am excited about simple processes. I feel like I am going backwards along the evolutionary scale of photography – back to simpler equipment and slow, but extraordinary results.
While I have modern, new equipment I get most excited about old equipment. Last month I dropped my 4×5 in a lake… submerged. After a thorough disassembly (easy) and drying, the camera was happily back in action.
I’ve slowly explored the path of large format photography starting with a Graflex 4×5 and building up to my newest camera, my home made 8×10 field camera.
Last year I worked hard to figure out two new processes producing originals straight from the camera – not prints / reproductions.
I like it!
I’m creating more this summer preparing for my next show at La Fab – September 18 – October 5th.
