Still and not so Still Life

For my camera I am using a Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon EF 24-105mm 2.8 L lens or a Canon 50mm macro lens.  Processing I do with Apple computers using Adobe Photoshop. I do my own printing with Epson 7800 and more recently 7900 printers on Epson Ultrasmooth Fine Art paper.  The ink is Epson Ultrachrome, an archival pigment ink. Prints are usually either 22″ x  33″, 17″ x 25.5″, or 12″ x 18″. There are some larger prints and diptychs 22″ x up to 72″.  Editions are small and graduated in price.

Still Life 2001 – 2006

For cameras I used a Canon 1D and a Canon 1Ds Mark II with a Canon EF 24-105mm 2.8 L lens and a Canon 50mm macro lens.  Processing I did with Apple computers using Adobe Photoshop.  I did my own printing on Epson Ultrasmooth Fine Art paper using an Epson 7600 printer.  The ink was Epson archival pigment ink.  Prints are either 22″ x  33″ or 22″ x 14 2/3″.

A History of The Real

For these images I used film, scanners and early digital cameras.  In 1993 I began to use Adobe Photoshop as well as ephemeral software that is no more.  Sometimes I worked in a demo room at Crimson Tech in Boston using a variety of ever changing hardware and software.  Nash Editions made all of the exhibition prints in various sizes.  Occasionally I have continued an edition on my Epson printers, using a different paper so that it is easy to tell the difference between the Nash prints and mine.  Also the Nash prints have a deckle edge and a chop.  In 2001 I began to do my own digital printing.

Eye and Idea

The 1990 – 1996 images are 4×5 negatives that I made with a Deardorff camera.  I made a small number of 16 x 20 silver prints at the time I made the negatives.  Recently I have made some Pigment Ink Jet prints at 22″ x 28 1/2″ in editions of five.  The 1989 – 1990 images are 8×10 and 11×14 negatives that I made with Deardorff cameras. Dave Haas and Todd Watts made 20″ x 24″ and 30″ x 40″ silver prints in editions of 14 or 15.
