Last week I experienced one of those rare occasions when a portraiture sitting with the extraordinarily talented Aditya became a true creative meeting of minds and souls. Here is one of my favorite plates from the session, shot on 3 ASA paper negative, 8x10 Deardorff camera, Gundlach Manhattan Triple Convertible Lens. Developed in coffee.

A rewarding job, well paid, with plenty of incentive to better your position along a fair scale of rewards, means a lot in this life.
If you have such a job, count your blessings. This guy doesn't have one.
Happy Monday to all.

LARGE FORMAT STREET PHOTOGRAPHY

Using a large format camera (Graflex R.B. Auto) to shoot in the streets, involves a slow pace, careful framing and focusing, taking one shot at a time (then changing the film holder) and often also entertaining a conversation with lots of people, puzzled by the sheer size, the obvious age and, possibly, by the apparent awkwardness of the camera.... But definitely, the very best thing is, when I come back to my studio, after developing shot by shot in the darkroom, to choose the "best one"of the day amongst eight plates, not eight hundred digital files !!!!

You know, I have read several articles about this in the last few days, but, strangely, none of them strongly focused on the simple fact that Richard Prince is doing what is doing only thanks to a vast and egregious circle of art critics, art galleries and art buyers who not only condone, but endorse, enable and pay top dollars for his "work".
Now, we are allegedly talking about "art" within the "art world" here, however I can't help but ask myself: could not a similar behavior be condoned and endorsed also at other levels of society, when an oligarchic cultural elite is in power (as it is already)? Shall we end up condoning thieves, rapists, pedophiles and killers based on the conceptual Lalaland of a few arrogant, financially powerful trendsetters and unscrupulous merchants?

In the age of relativism there is not much point in complaining about anything and you can "hate" as much as you want. To no avail.

Fact is The ENABLER is guilty as much, sometimes even more, than the PERPETRATOR.___

This is an important issue I would be glad to see legally resolved. Be it paying for a renewable permit to city or state authorities or, better, some plain and simple (and free of charge) common sense....

Paperwork, liability, and sheer bureaucratic bulk have now made it practically impossible to do some forms of street photography, especially if you need to use a tripod.___This is an important issue I would be glad to see legally resolved.

THE BLUES AIN'T NOTHING BUT A GOOD MAN FEELING BLUE
As I mostly shoot large format film I am pretty restrained these days in terms of quantity of shots I take for each portraiture sitting. Today I pushed my minimalist approach even further by shooting only one image !! Fujifilm 100-C reclaimed negative.

Probably one of the most "in-depth" interviews I ever have given to anyone.
Talking about my photography, my movie documentary work, but also about aspects of my personal life and experiences I never shared with anyone before, not even my close friends.
Possibly an interesting read, especially if you are, like me, here in NYC, stuck indoors due to bad weather !

The X ray Files

I have been shooting X-Ray film with some very happy results lately.
Compared to my light-insensitive medium of choice (in-camera photographic paper negatives) X-Ray film gives me the luxury of SPEED !! Its 80 ASA truly feels like 8000, compared to the 3 (!!) of photo paper.There are drawbacks too: X- RAY film has emulsion on both sides of the sheet, hence it can get badly scratched by merely looking at it (inside the box) from a distance.... just kidding here.. but only so much.
X-RAY film, when handled very gently can give lovely results. I develop it in coffee, like everything else, but I place a piece of glass on the bottom of the tray. That appears to reduce, but never completely eliminate, the scratching issue.
Another lovely attribute of X-RAY film is being almost completely insensitive to red light, so, while daylight or fluorescent bulbs... more »

Another lovely attribute of X-RAY film is being almost completely insensitive to red light, so, while daylight or fluorescent bulbs must be used to shoot your subject, it can be easily loaded and developed by inspection, under a safe-light.
This image was shot with one of my favorite lenses, a Dallmeyer Air Ministry 8 inch f2.9 Pentac, made in 1919, right after the first World War. I think there is a lovely creamy sharpness to it and I was able to shoot this portrait simply using a 1x1 daylight led panel instead of my usual 2400 Watts per second bank of strobes !! Oh joy !!___

Read the story of our creative coffee meeting, written by talented and passionate photographer friend +Armand Salmon 

This past summer, I had the chance to sit down with +Giovanni Savino, someone who's passion, work-ethic, and photography I am enamoured with. I was my every intention to take a photo of Giovanni during our meeting, but as you will see, I found myself on the other end of the lens...

This is the first entry, of an ongoing series loosely titled, "Coffee with" wherein, as the title suggests, a creative and me sit down for an informal interview about their creative process. Coffee is optional.___Read the story of our creative coffee meeting, written by talented and passionate photographer friend +Armand Salmon
