Atwater Village

This one was shot last year, and printed just a couple of months ago in my kitchen darkroom.  I shot it with a Mamiya C-22, and it's printed on Ilford fiber base multi-grade paper.  The location is a small industrial area at the edge of the Atwater Village neighborhood of Los Angeles.  It's close enough to where I live, that I was able to walk there.

Drive In Theater, Arizona

This one was photographed in northern Arizona, along old route 66.  I can remember waiting for the train to leave, but I was on my way home from a trip, and had to get back to work, so after an hour I had to give up.  Printed on Ilford resin coated multi-grade paper, photographed with a Mamiya C22.

Boquillas, Mexico

This is one of the few older prints I have that I can actually date.  The picture was taken with a Mimiyaflex in 1980 in Boquillas, Mexico.  Boquillas is across the Rio Grande River from Big Bend National Park in Texas.  I took a row boat across to Mexico, walked about a mile or so to the town.  Printed on Ilford multi-grade resin coated paper.

Warehouse Scale

I found this scale in an abandoned warehouse in the San Joaquin Valley in Central California.  Can't remember the exact location.  Shot with a Mamaiya C22 in very low light, a fairly thin negative, printed on Ilford multi-grade resin coated paper.

The rather large grain comes from high desert heat.  Shot in Amboy, California on 35 mm film.  I used either a Nikkormat  or a Kodak Retina C3.  Printed on Ilford multi-grade resin coated paper.

Oro Grande, California

This one was shot with the Mamiya C22 and printed on Ilford multi-grade resin coated paper.

Palm Tree, LACMA

This one used a rather easy technique.  I have a couple of very old, out of date, envelopes of Ilford multi-grade resin coated paper.  I made a very quick exposure, using the same negative on all four prints, and then painted the developer on the print.  The negative was exposed with a Holga camera.  This palm tree is outside the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Broad Building.  Photographed 2014.
