the making

the images were made using a 4x5 wooden pinhole camera with tri-x film. the pinhole camera invites one to imagine the image- as there is no way to preview or frame in a traditional way.

exposures ranged from 6 seconds to 30 minutes. the images were initially printed on silver bromide papers agfa brovira. large paper negatives were made from these and contact Kallitype prints were produced- each an original with contrast and exposure varying with the season, the weather and the amount of sunlight. the 'black' Kallitypes are produced on a very hot sunny day. the lith images were printed on Foma bromide paper and developed with Moersch easylith.
