Found Artifacts

A street in Villecroze, FrancePardon my taking this day off from the usual fare at Irenic Thoughts to divert to the personal and share with you some recent photographic work of mine, which I call Found Artifacts. The photos were taken on my trip (with my wife and daughter) to Italy and France in June of 2007. A decidedly old school feel is intended for the forty photos at the website, four of which are displayed here.

A priest praying morning prayer in St. Pete's SquareThe camera used was a Holga camera on 120 format black and white film. The pictures use the particular nature of that less-than-perfect, all-plastic toy camera from China to create images designed to look less like contemporary photography and more like found artifacts. They are new images made to feel as if they have been lost in the photo album of a well-traveled, eccentric uncle; collecting dust on a forgotten shelf in the attic since between the world wars.

The photos are exhibited online at Our travels from a more up-to-date, digital photography perspective are found here Irenic Thoughts: Travel.
