Playing around in the studio with a Polaroid SLR 680 SE that was recently given to me. The film’s not cheap but I love it!

There’s a new section on my website — Open Edition Prints. With an open edition the prints are not limited in number to 10 or 15 prints, for example, as many of the other images are.
They are still printed in platinum-palladium and to the same high quality as any of my other prints. They are stamped, signed and titled but their smaller size and availability are reflected in the lower price. Shipping within the U.S.A. is included too. The Open Edition Prints page can be found here.
I’ll be taking part in a roundtable discussion on photogravure at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts next month, along with three other practitioners of the process. This is free and open to the public – all are welcome and no reservation is required.
Photogravure is an art form with traditions in both photography and printing. Join us for a panel discussion on this unique process with artists Marvel Grégoire, Keith Taylor, and Carol Inderieden, moderated by Jes Lee Shimek. Discussion will include a short history of the medium, techniques and tools used, and reflections from artists on their experiences with the process.
