I have begun an adventure in publishing some of the images I have collected and amassed over the last few years of this analogue ride. I was looking at some images tonight and remember that first thrill of developing paper negatives and film. The business of life and left field balls have jaded that somewhat....though I am still reasonably prolific and passionate. It will be nice to clear the decks somehow........to get that fresh feeling back.

In 2016 I bought a large studio camera for $600 dollars. It was a steal for me as I had always wanted a huge camera with cranks and winders.

Most if not all of these images will be analogue by birth, some will be blends.... as in today's world any publishing on the web will have a digital kiss. And some blended not just in the publishing but the processing. Ultimately I am on a journey towards analogue printing.....born in a wrong…
October 28, 2015There are times in the ether of cyberspace I have posted images and comments on those postings told me people had not really seen or understood what the image was, how it was made, and what it was made with. The digital life or myth pervades earth to the extent that people think you can't get film anymore. I don't mind, because they give me their beautiful old SLR's, so I go and shoot paper in them.
April 6, 2015As we all know, light that is not man made originates from the sun. (I cannot help acknowledge the people here that think the sun shines from their nether rear regions...you know them too I know) The sun is, I am told the source of life for our galaxy.I totally get why cultures worship the sun. The way that light falls on the world is what creates the images that our eyes see, and cameras capture on emulsion or digital sensor. The lumen print in its simplicity and its science goes back to the very beginnings of photography. I personally find it very gentle and very beautiful as a process.
