Re: Warehouse Wall and Door

Thanks Barry Kirsten and Walter Glover . Lewis Baltz and his mastery of industrial minimalism was certainly an influence but Grant Mudford came first for me. I used ransack the local newsagent and buy all the photography magazines and in Creative Camera 1977 there was a big spread of Grant's work do...

Re: Photographer at Work, Noosa.

Yes Mick , a "contrast kick" would be in order but, rather than confess a fault, I blame the 1948 vintage 21cm Voigtlander lens: bad single coating and a major separation in the front doublet. It's buttery smooth for portraits but for "trees against the sky" landscapes not so goo...

Re: My Mother's Parlor

Re: Facial Reconstruction

Walter, what an extraordinary reading: "two pen marks approximating pupils". I never thought of that most evocative implication. The truth is more prosaic. The "pupils" are actually little eye-holes cut out of the crepe bandage.

Re: Facial Reconstruction

Thanks Walter for your sympathetic analysis. Empathy was the main motivator for this picture. The brave sitter left her patient wrist band on but insisted on the bandage over the two blackest eyes in Australia; didn't want to look like a panda.
