Tintype Portrait of Nick

2012

Eleven collodion wet plate portraits made with color anodized aluminum mounted in a carefully spaced overlapping pattern standing off the black velvet background in a 18.5″ x 22.5″ frame

Eleven collodion wet plate 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.

Tintype Self-Portraits

2012

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.

Billiad

2013

Original digital photos are available as limited edition digital pigment prints

The Billiad is about what one man discovers when the dream becomes a reality. When this guy from New Jersey via Cincinnati, Schenectady,  Aspen, and New York City does find his own world, locates his slice of heaven, that place with his very own name, what will the reality be? “Careful what you wish for.” If it really is MY world, would I want it to be like Westheimer Road in Houston, Texas?
The Billiad was my trip to that special place.

He writes: “over time I found myself drawn to boxes containing the undesirable – broken, scratched, partially …
