Opportunities for you to participate
I have lots of ideas. I want to see what I can do, what is possible. I like bouncing ideas off of others and getting them involved in some way.
Here I've come up with a couple of projects that combine several ideas together and have a connecting theme to give them some sort of a direction. If you are interested in what I'm doing here and would like to be a part of one or more of these I would love to hear from you and get your input. I'm totally open and will let these projects go wherever they lead. I hope to give whoever wishes the chance to experience a bit of this historic process and help revive in some small way this disappearing art.
Participation in one of these projects is free and actually you will get at least one plate to keep in exchange for your time.
19th Century police mugshots
One of the earliest uses of photography was by law enforcement and the making of detailed likenesses of the public offenders. I thought it would be cool to try to replicate as closely as possible some of the images I found while researching this.
This project is barely off the ground but the idea is to create a pair of photos that look three dimensional when seen through a viewing device of some type. The subjects will be portraits. Because of the 3-d depth of the image, there is a feeling like the person is more present, that they are somehow even aware of you viewing them. It's kinda spooky real.
