Galaxy A Nautilus Shell Galaxy A Nautilus Shell
$ 275.00 In stock
Product description: Galaxy Galaxy is a monochrome image showing a nautilus shell that has been cut in half. The sectioned shell is seen nearly edge-on as an open spiral on a black background. The shell was placed before the camera with support from behind (away from the viewer) in a dimly lit room. A diffused strobe was placed on the left. By exposing for the highlights with a higher shutter speed, the background and support were under-exposed and allowed to go black. A white card on the right side was placed to open up the shadow areas some. This image was created on 8x10 inch black-and-white sheet film in an antique Kodak 2-D view camera mounted with a 210mm/f-5.6 Schneider Symmar lens. The film used was Kodak Ektascan, an emulsion used in medical ultra-sound imaging through the early 20000s. The negative was developed in its proper chemistry in a clinical darkroom. Medical imaging is digital now and this film is no longer available. The negative has been digitally scanned and is presented here as an archival ink-jet print. This is one image in a larger body of work involving Nautilus shells, in whole, and in section as presented here. This series was begun when I first returned to photography after my vision deteriorated and represents my creative inner vision at that time. Galaxy was selected for inclusion in the Shared Visions 2014-2015 Exhibition sponsored by the Marshall B.Ketchum University. I 8x10 $175 Matted 11x14 $275 Matted 16x20 $400 Ships Rolled
