Wet-Plate Collodion on Laser etched Trophy Aluminum (Tintype) 6"x8" or 6"x6" or 4.25"x5.5"

After 35 years of making photograms I felt challenged to make something new, but it seemed I had photogrammed every kind of object. I decided to create my own objects to make photograms with - and the best place to start is with simple geometric shapes.  I 3D printed geometric shapes which were placed on the wet tintype and exposed to light. Before making the photogram I laser-etched photographs of the geometric objects onto the aluminum to achieve a layered effect. I was able to produce new imagery of timeless shapes using 19th century analog process combined with 21st century laser etching and 3D printing.

Loop

1997

Loop photograms are 20" x 16" silver gelatin paper or 10" x 8" Ilfochrome paper in an edition of 1. They are also available as digital prints in an edition of 10

The loop photograms were made using a strip of vellum placed on top of the print material and exposed to light. Most of the silver-gelatin photograms were also solarized to create more complex images.

Tintype photograms of 3D printed geometric objects on trophy aluminum - 4.25"x5.5" up to 8"x10" tintypes

After 35 years of making photograms I felt challenged to make something new, but it seemed I had photogrammed every kind of object. I decided to create my own objects to make photograms and felt the best place to start is with simple geometric shapes.  I designed geometric shapes in Tinkercad and printed them using a Makerbot Replicator 2 3D printer in a translucent PLA resin. The geometric objects are placed on the wet tintype and exposed to light. I was able to produce new imagery of elementary timeless shapes using 19th century analog process combined with 21st century 3D printing.

Borderlands

2014 - Ongoing

Collodion Wet-Plate glass negatives scanned and enlarged, manipulated in Photoshop and digitally printed up to 96" wide.

Borderlands is an exploration of panoramic landscapes derived from small areas cropped from the edges of contemporary collodion wet-plate images. The hand-made nature of the wet-plate process creates artifacts which appear to be gigantic landscapes but in reality are just inches across.

Ascent

2007 - Ongoing

Installation includes 21 3D printed PLA Resin Sculptures approx. 12" tall, 1 Bronze sculpture approx. 16" tall, 14"x11" Silver Gelatin Photograms

Ascent explores this evolution from today’s analog man to tomorrow’s digital man. As today's environment of digital interrelationships evolves from history’s analog world man continues to change and adapt. In my Ascent project, I utilize historic analog photographic processes and cutting edge digital modeling technologies to create 3 dimensional digital sculptures from 2 dimensional analog photograms. The technologies evolve similarly to the evolution of man.
