So excited to be featuring my accordion-pleated artist’s book at the Southern Vermont Arts Center’s group show, I Choose Film. I am looking forward to seeing the art book on display after the years of photographing and interviewing in Rwanda and the many hours of post-production. It’s printed on a luminous, white Japanese Washi, at Indian Hill Image Works, and will be displayed on 12-feet of floating glass so that the light enhances the texture.
The show opening, less than two weeks away, is July 8th from 4 to 6 PM, and is going to be a delight! There will be the opportunity to meet with the many other featured artists and the possibility of having a wet-plate tintype portrait created by the Penumbra Foundation, NYC, (on both Saturday and Sunday). For the young: a “Take Your Best Shot” instant photography contest.
Point Reyes, California….I heard about the overlook, made my way up from San Francisco with cameras in hand including my Soviet-era, Lubitel remake and plenty of film anticipating the view of the Pacific at that edge of the world but I had to use my imagination because the infamous San Fran Fog rolled in. I wasn’t going to leave without a shot, so I climbed a hill in front of this tree, held the twin-lens Lubitel at my waist, and looked down through the lens just when these two young kids walked past.
(Don’t know what a Lubitel is, see below.)
Took the shot with 120 film, scanned to digital, and printed on handmade Amate paper at Indian Hill Imageworks, VT. This paper has a textual quality that deeply absorbs ink and intensifies the density of the hues.
