Platinum-palladium print (1:1) on Reich vellum paper
from 8×10 inch negative original
We are pushed up by the same force that pushes us down. The things that hide from us also hide us. What obscures the light also hides the dark from ourselves, from ourselves.
But wait, there, you can look at darkness and light at the same moment. Time is set aside. And space. Love too; you as you and me as me. All set aside in the sameness. All one mesh.
I am very happy to announce that my dear friend Mike Ware and I have been contracted to write a book about our variant of the platinum/palladium printing process for Focal / Routledge Press, as a part of their series on contemporary practices in alternative photography. We invite submissions of examples of work as detailed below.
