Country Bathroom Sink - 120 Film

A rustic country bathroom sink in detail. The details of history & age tell a long a weathered story. I wanted to use a minimalism approach to study the details in the shadows & contours of this old country bathroom sink. If you look closely you will see various rust, lime & calcium stains on the fixtures & drain. You may note the scoring & pockmarks in the enamel worn down by use & time. The washer is cracking & decaying.

Sketch no. 1 Preserves Jars c. 1945 photograph - 120 film I was struck with this creative ideas last week so I was in the studio all weekend photographing & developing a mini-series of photographic 'sketches' that explore things I find interesting, have character & a bit of a story to them. Now, I am excited to share with you a 120 back & white film print of the 1st photograph in the series of 3. I may release the other two shortly.  These jars came with my house - that was built in 1904 - & were found hidden & tucked away in my basement filled with various preserves & covered in calcium & rust buildup. I thought for sure their purity would be lost due to heavy stains & scoring/etching. Their design & artwork piqued my interest so I soaked them in double strength vinegar for a few hours & now they sparkle like new. There are minimal scratches & I was able to remove all the stains. The embossing on the bottom of one of the jars reads, 1945. The newspaper they were found sitting on were from the same era. They now sit beautifully, for this photograph, deconstructing the mythos of country living. I am particularly drawn to the font used for Corona & the cursive font in Canadian JEWEL. Design on glass is just cool. Please note the dark edges are subtle shadows that ground the subject on a surface. This gives the print detail & texture.

A Robin's nest sat on the roof of my house between some eaves & downspouts. After the family had left the nest, it fell to the ground fully intact so I decided to preserve it. I used as homemade insecticide & fixer to preserve this little nest - 120 film
