Kokoro - Wandering Through a Photographic Life

Backstage Kokoro

A "behind-the-scenes" look at selected images in my Kokoro project —
Content, photographic notes, EXIF data, creative process, miscellaneous commentary, and original digital captures. And now with additional audio comments about selected images!

At the moment when I'm out photographing, I almost never know how I'm eventually going to use the pictures. I was in a museum in North Dakota that included an old-fashioned print shop. This printer's block was from the last edition of the newspaper, handset with individual metal type.

A late afternoon light was streaming in from a window which makes the composition. Without the shadows, this would be a fairly uninteresting and unreadable abstract.

As a publisher, I'm more than a little aware of the intricacies and history of the printed page. No doubt that influenced my interest in making this photograph.
