Re: Daguerreotype Gallery
These are gorgeous. I love that blue that happens in the blown out places. How are you able to scan that/reproduce that on screen I wonder? When I try to photograph chromos they do not translate well (the silver in them doesn't).
I especially love the American series--the one of the two diverging roads. Very contemporary subject matter and the little teeny edifices in juxtaposition with the diverging paths is evocative on a number of different theoretical levels.
Do you mean "modern" as in process--in other words, are you using the Becquerel process or whatnot?
I am spacey today--in the process of biting the bullet and going totally MAC (have been at work, now at home), and transferring 300 gigs of files to this new computer. Bit by bit. And trying to make the switch from Outlook Express to the Mac mail. UGH.
