Seeing the world around me through the ground glass of a view camera for the last 20 or so years, I was inspired to attempt to use vintage historic processes when photographing the female figure after I saw Edward Steichen’s image, “Little Round Mirror”, at a museum.  The tonal range and tactile quality achieved especially through palladium have aided me in this project to depict the drama seen when the female figure with its delicacy is posed, as it is here, in a harshly lit, abandoned industrial setting.
