Feather & Church 8x10 Fibre Based Traditional Darkroom Black and White Photo Print


About the Photo
In the town I grew up in, Morinville Alberta, the church on the main street burnt to the ground. A month later, while visiting I captured this image of a feather affixed to the fence surrounding the church remains. Many church had been vandalized around this time as a response to the mass graves found at the sites of Canadian Residential Schools. To be honest I don't know what the symbolism of it is but I'd like to think it's a peace offering, and a gesture of remorse on behalf of the community.

About the Process
I captured this image with a Nikon F100 and 50mm f1.8 on an expired roll of Adox CHS 50, a film that no longer exists. I developed the roll with a common developer, Kodak D76.

The image was enlarged with a Bseleser 23C II, and a Nikkor 50mm f2.8 lens, and exposed on a beautiful fibre based paper called Agfa Portriga-Rapid (PRK 118 contrast 3). The paper is no longer in production. I developed the it in Dektol that was at least 40 years old. This overall creates a very rare and beautiful rendering of the image. The paper is thick and textured and has a slightly warm tone to the image.

Each photo is signed and numbered on the back.
