SECRET SEEDS 1985
SECRET SEEDS 1985

SECRET SEEDS  1985  is a tryptich sketch photo collage created from photographs of a cover of a National Geographic from 1983.  It is an image of a Wodaabe man of the south Sahara, photographed by Carol Beckwith in 1983. Each section is a separate exposure on color negative film, printed on color C type paper, and mounted onto black museum board. The motion is created with manual camera movements. Unpublished, I created it to work out some ideas and techniques for other projects.

BRYANT PARK SKETCH 1997

BRYANT PARK SKETCH 1997  is an unrealized analog photo collage from the 90’s Collage era. Typically I am cutting off the sprocket hole edges and taping them to glass to make the final contact print. It is shot with Ilford XP-1 chromogenic B&W film and printed on color c-type paper.
