Re: Paper Nrgatives

Hi John, It has been a few years hasn't it. The early days of the Bromoil
list as I recall.

I am presently only superficially familiar with Echague's work and have not
yet done anything with direct carbon myself, although I do find the idea
intriguing. It will have to wait for some day down the road though as I am
still reeling from the shock of receiving an eviction notice from our
landlord yesterday.

A sincere Thank You for your words of encouragement though, it's much
appreciated. I will try to post some details to my website when I am able to
do so.

using full size paper negatives produced long before computers were ever
thought of.

would have contacted the original neg from the camera with other film,
probably ortho, to make a positive tranny which could then be enlarged onto
the paper  to give a full size paper neg.

Transfer  and paper negs and what  great results you have achieved.
Echague's prints, as you may know,  were made on Direct Carbon paper.

potential to rise out of the threatening housing problems you describe so
you may  keep your creative workspace and carry on making pictures.
