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 Unpublished, I created it to work out some ideas and techniques for other projects.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

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.

SPRING BREAK SKETCH 1995 is a very preliminary sketch for one of the Kodak Funsaver ad campaign shoots entitled ‘Spring Break’.  One of a series of ads created for Kodak thru J. Walter Thompson. They are analog photo collages, all shot with Kodak Funsaver disposable cameras and printed at local one-hour photo labs.

PANTHEON DUE 2017

PANTHEON DUE is a digital photo collage made from imagery found on Google Earth of the Pantheon in Rome. Loose and sketchy, like this loose and sketchy film version I did in 1987.  For more similar images, look at Google Hack on my website.

GUGG-STRIP-SKETCH  1992
GUGG-STRIP-SKETCH 1992

The Guggenhein Sketch Strip here was created at the same time I shot Guggenheim. They are both large scale contact prints, shot on Ilford X-P1, a black and white chromogenic film, and printed on color paper. I had this in mind: orange peel clip art

As well as M.C. Escher’s Rind. Below is a vertical version:
