|Béatrice Larrivée - 24 August 2022|
I wrote here that from my New York Times I found out about the death of American art photographer Jerry Uelsmann. I wrote about it here. Since then I have been shooting film when possible with the idea of doing what I call my "scanner negative sandwiches without mayonnaise".
The best results happen when the negatives are from the same session and in particular when a few of the exposures are taken with the camera firmly on a tripod. When you flip one of the negatives in the opposite direction sometimes you get a neat result.
At this date of 5 August 2022 my plants in the garden are waning in direction of fall. To keep myself distracted, I had the good fortune of having dancer Béatrice Larrivée, 26, pose for me yesterday. Because we are blessed in Vancouver to have a processing joint called The Lab I was able to drop her off at Arts Umbrella where she is giving classes on a dance system called Gaga and still make it to The Lab and then even get the film back by 5!
