Latest Large format landscape & portraits out of the can

The technician at UCS had a busy Wednesday last week whilst I was attending the Agile Business Conference in London. I had queued up 22 5×4 negatives plus countless rolls of 220, 120  and 35mm films over the last month and it has taken a weekend interspersed with research work to process them. Some of […]

Friday 13th September – ephemera

equals=ephemera’s penultimate day resulted in some interesting visitors and results. A day that started with having our dog Sam put down after living with us for 13 years had to have some positive results and a few are shown here.

Most of the day was spent setting up lighting and completing the hang that we started on Monday afternoon following the tear down in Ipswich Art School Gallery.
