Photographer at Work, Noosa
Gelatin-silver photograph on Ultrafine Silver Eagle VC FB photographic paper, image size 21.5cm X 16.3cm, from a 4x5 Kodak Tmax 100 negative exposed in a Tachihara 45GF field view camera fitted with a Voigtlander Heliar 21cm f4.5 lens.
It's one of those high bright overcast days when the bush shows its true tones and patterns instead of being overlaid with a lattice of shadows and sun patches. My friend Andy Cross has seemingly stared at this spot for nearly two minutes which is long enough for me to set up and photograph him. Perhaps it is true that, of all the practitioners of camera arts, it is large format photographers who are most vulnerable to intense seeing.
