The Assembly of a William Blake Press

The Assembly of a William Blake Press

In preparation for Copper Impressions – The 18th Century Printmaking Revolution, an exhibition and printmaking demonstration at Christ Church Library in Oxford, carpenters worked alongside Professor Michael Phillips, internationally recognized William Blake scholar, to assemble the pieces of a copper-plate printing press that Phillips used in his workshops.

This press, a working replica of the one used by 19th-century poet, painter, and printmaker, William Blake, was built locally by Buckinghamshire maker/designer, Josh Howard-Saunders, and it arrived at The Library just following its recent stay in Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum.

Sick & Tired | The Lunchtime Portraits

Sick & Tired | The Lunchtime Portraits

I can easily imagine this to be one of life’s less rewarding tasks, sitting around in a mascot costume, likely for very spare wages, only to drum up business for someone else. Just today, in fact, I watched some total stranger pinch one of this gentleman’s eyes as he walked past. So on the day that I took this photo, I was unsurprised at this honest display of emotion.

Due to the fast film and bright daylight, I had to stop down to about f16 just to be able to shoot at 1/500th of a second, my fastest shutter speed.

Solar Eclipse, 20 March 2015

Solar Eclipse, 20 March 2015

I have seen solar eclipses in my lifetime, and, although they still hold a fascination for me, I was more interested on this occasion in the phenomenon of an eclipse as an aspect of our culture and the ways in which we observe it.

That being said, I do still have, in this set, one token shot of the eclipse itself.

Whittingham & Baché, Against the Grain

The 18 October launch of Against the Grain, the Whittingham & Baché 2015 Autumn/Winter Catwalk Collection at The Old Library in The Custard Factory, Digbeth, Birmingham, UK. Also featured were the art and poetry of SigA and the jewelry of Anna Lorenz.

I chose CineStill 800T film for the night. Cinestill is Kodak Vision 3 5219 500T cinema film that has been converted for C-41 color film processing and subsequent use in still cameras. Although it gave me just the look I wanted when the subject was well lit, it was unforgiving at the fringes of the room or even at the edges of the stage. When poorly lit, subjects were often lost in the dark, lost in the film grain, or both. When I shoot this film in the future, I will bear this experience in mind, and I will also try to meter more often.
