Tag Archives: Large Format
I have just completed my third trip to the slot canyons of the American Southwest. It is a breathtaking place, somewhat challenging technically, extremely rewarding, and a sort of a spiritual experience. I would like to share a few thoughts about that place, about my photographic technique, and about the feeling of being there.
I have been interested in photography since I was a child. I became enchanted when I saw an image appear on a sheet of paper floating in a dish filled with developer. That was better than magic.
My day-to-day job requires me to travel a lot. I beat my own record by visiting forty-six countries in 2010. I wish I could travel everywhere with my large format camera.
The (Be)Longing series comprises fragments of a particular landscape. It is difficult for me to express in words what I see in them but I am certain that there are several interconnected layers to which I react emotionally.
Large format photography requires exceptional technical preparation and the process of making prints takes a lot of work.
