Come visit a wonderful photography exhibit in Carmel at the Exposed Gallery. I have 3 small prints in the show, all made using the bleaching and lith development process which I am practicing in my darkroom these days. They are from the “Surfacing” series and are all one-of-a-kind images. There are lots of gems in this show, come on down! Click on the image for more info.
Check out the Surfacing Gallery for new images created using the Lith process. These prints start out as regular darkroom silver gelatin prints. The prints are then dipped in copper bleach and quickly re-developed in Lith developer. Lith developer allows for slow but “infectious” development, giving a grainy look in the blacks, and wonderful colors in the highlights. This process is flexible and intuitive, and results in unique prints. It’s a lot of fun in my darkroom…
I am excited to introduce a new format and lots of new images to my website. I’ve added two new galleries: Surfacing and Toy Camera. The Surfacing images are my latest work in progress, darkroom alternative process prints. The Toy Camera images have been stacking up for years and are starting to make sense together. Included is The Pet Spa series starting in the second page of the Toy Camera gallery.
To see my images in person, please contact me for an appointment. Photography West Gallery in Carmel, California, carries selected images. Also, if you happen to be staying in Monterey, chose the Intercontinental Clement Hotel next to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and you’ll find my work in the rooms.
