Thirty 3"x3" collodion wet-plate self-portrait photographs on color anodized trophy aluminum spaced 1/4" apart and standing 3/4" off the black background in a 21" x 24" frame.
Thirty collodion wet plate self portraits made with color anodized aluminum. The strobe light was so bright I didn't want to photograph innocent subjects who might not be careful enough to avoid looking at the 5000 watt seconds of lights when they flashed. So I used the only subject who is patient enough to sit for 30 portraits. The process required 3 days to complete all 30 plates.
Cibachrome photogram prints 11"x14" and larger, sometimes assembled into collages of multiple prints (Waterflower Mosaic series).
Waterflowers is a series of unique photograms on Cibachrome, often presented as diptychs or quadtypchs. The flower petals and leaves are arranged on top of a piece of Cibachrome paper and exposed directly to a powerful light for a very brief exposure.

Photograms of ferns were among the earliest images made at the beginning of photography. These photograms are made either onto collodion wet-plate glass plates or Cibachrome/Ilfochrome color photographic paper. Mine date from the early 2000's, not the 1830's!

The inspiration for the Wald Project was to capture the view when awakening from a nap under a tree. Or maybe what one might dream when napping under the tree. These pinhole pictures of the trees Wald explore how the forest stimulates the human imagination evoking emotions from fantasy to fear.
