About this project

The Project

I want my first gallery exhibition to be unique and meaningful. So few photographers today are shooting film, and even less offer hand made prints. The problem is that it is expensive.

I make my living as a photographer, and I had planned to have an exhibition years ago; however, being from a small town, and the slow economy, I had to put it off. It was an unrealistic goal, and still will be without your help.

I need your help, as my network is small. Even if you don't give a dime, you can still help by emailing, tweeting, and facebooking the link to this page. I cannot do this on my own.

The Goods

Hand made, gelatin silver prints will be coming from one of the best black and white film labs in the nation. Direct from negative prints have no lab manipulations. Standard quality prints will be cropped and spotted. Exhibition quality prints are spotted, cropped, include advanced manipulation, special processing and developers, etc. These prints will meet the highest archival standards.

Metallic prints will come from a highly regarded lab (different from gelatin silver lab); however, they are not hand made, nor are they gelatin silver. These prints are made on Kodak Professional Endura Metallic VC Digital Paper. The prints have a chrome like sheen. 

The 11"14" table top books will come from the same lab as the metallic prints. books will be printed on lay-flat hinged paper. The 5x7 book is a collection of 5x7 prints that are spiral bound. They will also come from the same lab as the metallic prints.

I would like to give everyone that backs this project a gelatin silver print; however, these prints are expensive. Everyone will receive an invitation to buy these prints. This will be a private and limited sale. E-mails and postcards will be sent out when the project concludes in a year.
