I have signed up to take an extended projects class. I spoke to my instructor, S Gayle Stevens, at the end of last semester for things I could do prior to the start of class. Her reply; Figure out a project.
That is easier said than done…..
I have spent all summer thinking that I would use my 4×5 camera for this. I have since changed my mind. I have decided to use iPhone photos that I take for fun, and for posting on Instagram, and print 3×3 kallitypes of them. I will present them in accordion books using old book bindings as the cover. After spending a few hours culling thru all my iPhone images, I narrowed down my selections into three different themes; trees, columns, and buildings. I shared my ideas with the wonderful photographer Jeff Curto and he asked Why not do all three? Oh, and you ARE going to make more than one copy of each book, like maybe 3 or 4 copies?
So, it looks like I have mywork cut out for me this semester.
