palladium print on paper 19 x 23 inches 2014
I committed to do the Greenpoint Open Studio weekend this October 3-5. The studio will be open from 12pm-6pm. That’s about as far as I’ve got with details.
This is the site:
come and get some.
After the last image I posted quite a bit has happened. Some good, some not so good, and a giant mountain of terrible.
Hopefully that is all sorted out and I can get back to doing things like this.

palladium print on paper 23x19 inches.
The Prague images are now in process. Each original gets made into a contact positive on film then enlarged onto another piece of negative film.
Each negative is then contact printed. All the Prague images will be 100% palladium. I’ve narrowed the papers down to two. The final tests will be this month and then the set will be printed.
I will most likely make three prints in an edition of each image with one artist proof.
If I am able to complete enough prints in time I may show some of the finals during the Greenpoint Open Studios which I believe is set for October 3-5.
Then again I might just be away making more “Cross portraits in Providence.
These two images are now over 13 years old. I first started making portraits in this style at the end of 1999.
These two are my mother and father. I made these negatives on New Years Day, 2000. My intention was to photograph the people around me at the beginning of the decade and then again in 2010.
That didn’t happen. Perhaps I’ll just wait until 2020 and shoot mom and dad again then. Right now after more than a decade they barely look much different and perhaps even a bit younger.

Met this kid in Iowa City at Jingle Cross. He built his own ‘cross bike. He’s ridden RAGBRAI in the past. And he’s 16. Pretty cool.
