Minimalist line art evoking pen and ink drawings. Inky black lines emphasizing form and shape. But what delightful shapes.
I have been introduced as a photographer who works in black and white. Seriously, just black and white. None of those pesky gray mid-tones. These high contrast images have a lot to do with that reputation.
But there is a long tradition of photographers working with a limited, high contrast palette. Bill Brandt and Harry Callahan come to mind. These images continue that tradition.
Images were processed for high-contrast at every step. Lighting was stark and carefully positioned to achieve black edges around the body parts. Negative development was extreme to increase contrast. The original gelatin silver prints were meticulously burned and dodged. That process is easier today with digital processing, but care is still required to avoid artifacts.
The result is abstract images of inky black lines revealing the model's shape.
