(…And it’s a big one!)
We had an online critique and then for the exhibition I had to decide which images to print from this series as well as the other three critiques. This is 11 rolls of film here, I asked my instructor to look through what I had and pick out the strongest images, so these are all the ones that work best (she said my hit ratio’s getting better). No particular order besides chronological, except that there are several images that go together as a sequence.
The first four rolls were developed at the same time as this roll, and as the darkroom tech left out paper developer instead of film developer, they’re extremely high-contrast and difficult to print or get right in Photoshop. Once I was on a roll I kept going and by the time the semester was over I’d shot about 150ft of Tri-X, around 30 rolls of film. Then I shot another 20-25 rolls of film over the Summer during the height of the tourist season, and about 75 sheets of 4×5 in the Fall ’19 semester through February in the semester that technically is still in session. By the time I get everything compiled I hope to have enough for an exhibition and a book but current events have put that on hold a bit.
