Imagine the sunrises, sunsets, storms, and sunny days this water tower has seen in all its years. This day was not a particuarly memorable day in its history, but I will remember it as it appeared through the lens of my antique camera and now captured forever in this digital medium.
The Clack produces only 8 images on a roll of 120 film. This forces me to slow down and carefully compose each shot. This slowing down of time is exactly what is being portrayed in this photograph. The colors and clouds bleed into the background, highlighting how little has changed in this scene over time.
This photo is being featured at the 21st Annual Rhode Island Open at the Warwick Museum of Artfrom October 9 - November 3, 2007.
Created using my 1950's AGFA Clack with 4 year expired Fuji Velvia RVP120 (ISO 50) slide film cross processed with C-41. Photo scanned with an HP Scanjet 4890. No digital manipulation necessary!
