a lot of us have been working hard all semester, finishing projects and writing papers. i've been in the darkroom. i wanted to show you what i did. but as a warning, it could be triggersome.
each of these photographs were taken with a 4x5 / large format camera.
i developed and printed each image by hand.
all images click through to my flickr page.
for this assignment, we had to keep one negative pristine, and distress another in a way that correlated to the subject matter.
i typed a passage from hemingway's a farewell to arms over the negative.
my final, for my final we had to do an 'extended portrait'. when i thought of this, i thought of a further exploration of a place. i used to work a funeral home, and thought it would be a good place to go back and photograph. in doing so, i was not trying to be gruesome, or dark, but rather, honest. this is what it is. take from it what you will.
~insert possible trigger warning here~
i'd love to hear your thoughts.
