It’s been a busy week here in quarantine-land! Jakob (my son, now a 9th grader) is in a one-week mini-course exploring experimental photography. Since we’re
Apologies for this being a little rambling and unfocused – this has been sitting in my queue since 2016! Time to pull together the details
In the last few days I’ve gotten two questions about printing on glass. What a fantastic coincidence! It must mean it’s time to write about
When writing computer programs, there’s a tradition of having your first one say “Hello World.” So that’s the title of this shot, which is from
Over labor day weekend, I had a few photographers and alt-printers over for printfest 2013 – a chance for me to teach a little alt-photo,

I enjoy printing cyanotypes: simple chemistry, simple reactions, nice deep blues, non-toxic, and the moment you drop it in water is dramatic. It’s very straightforward
I really like Kallitypes. They’re a simple process. The final prints can take on the characteristics (both visual and chemical) of palladiotypes and platinotypes. And
Over the last two years of heavy experimentation with bichromate processes (gum arabic or ammonium caseinate on various papers as well as glass), I’ve had
This is the project that took up most of my 2012. And it’s what I wanted to post about repeatedly during the year, but my
