Artwork Description: Porch and Post: Emigrant's Gulch Montana
Porch and Post shows the wet floor boards of a covered porch with an inverted image of a supporting post reflected in the puddle water.
his is the porch of a Gold Rush era one room school house in what was the mining community of Emigrants Gulch in Southern Montana. The weather had turned wet and cold, so I looked around for an interesting composition out of the misting rain. I sat down on a bench and saw this interesting composition of contrasting lines. The supporting post is only hinted at as an ambiguous shadow. This is much as profoundly blind persons must infer the actuality of their surroundings by indirect sensations of sound smell and touch.
This image was created on Kodak Tri-X black and white film in a 4x5 inch Zone VI view camera mounted with a 90mm Nikkor lens. It is presented here as an archival ink-jet print. This is not a limited edition print.
