Description another from a series of photographs made with a 19th century camera, and hand coated paper instead of film. this paper negative was exposed and hand processed 'old school' and scanned. minimal photoshop was used to give this dream like and painterly effect, it is part of the traditional process.
John Nanian, Warwick, RI Member Since November 2007 Artist Statement thanks for visiting my imagekind gallery. i am a freelance photographer, but when I am not on assignment i photograph the world around me. sometimes i travel distances, but most of the time i am photographing local things. i am not far from the coast, im not far from providence and i can always find something nearby to photograph. i sometimes make photographic emulsion from scratch, sometimes i use storebought paper and film, sometimes i make photographs using the sun. i use a digital camera too, and from time to time i will make a emulsion based photograph using a digital file. i also make film and paper developer our of coffee. most of the coffee developer i use is from sumatra coffee beans i roast myself. i helped write the caffenol-cookbook, and i was featured in an interview on emulsive.com. i experiment a lot as you might have guessed. thanks again for the visit.
