this is my box of 'photo stuff'. it lives in the closet.
in this box can be found notes/references/resources, some Kodak Polycontrast III RC black & white paper, a box of Arista classic VC fiber paper, the remnants of a past group show, the portfolio I put together sometime in the '90's, a study from a solo show, three binders full of negatives and prints, developing tank, lupe, a couple of boxes of Arista 400 medium format film, a few of said negatives, and a half-finished photo-book.
in looking at my next project, it feels quite like my last project - Nexus of Ecstasy - where I finally condensed my earlier scribblings and sketches into one book (the loose ends of which are still waiting to be ritually burned). the project that is growing from Nexus requires me to create images, and in order to do that I need to re-engage with my photography, so...I thought I'd open the box (insert Pandora reference here). since I got such lovely and positive feedback on that old 'snow tires' photo of mine on here, I thought I'd share the journey in...
as Julie Andrews sings, "Let's start at the very beginning...a very good place..to start," in my head, the first question I asked myself was whether or not I thought I needed to use watermarks, and decided that I did not. excellent. problem handled, moving on. now I need to figure out how to give people the option to purchase an image and/or book of mine, if they like. of course, people should always feel free to just mail me money, too, that always works.
so I think I'm just going to post the photos as they happened, and see what kind of feedback I get while I work out how best to market them. suggestions, support, and love are always welcome. cheers!
