Off Movie Road in the Alabama Hills with my great Ford Flex which doubles as a wetplate darkbox.
2012 was am amazingly busy year – wonderful in every way. I spent a good portion of the winter in Virginia, where I was able to do a lot of shooting up on the Skyline Drive. I drove across the United States with my wetplate gear and spent a week with five other women shooting big cameras in the desert. I had another wonderful exhibition in Sweden, then came home and flew straight to New Orleans for portfolio reviews at PhotoNOLA. So many great people and images and experiences.
Getting it all written down is going to take a bit of time. . . .
Four years ago, in February of 2008 I began the Daily Print project. It was exactly what it sounds like: a print every day, sent to a list of wonderful recipients. What a great ride it’s been, and today marks the end.
My gratitude to you all — it has been so much fun! Now I look forward to new photographic adventures. I won’t be Daily anymore, but I won’t be gone, either.
Many, many thanks to you all!
from the program. If you can’t squint hard enough to read it, it says:
“In Things of This World, Jeanne Wells of Maine, USA brings her love of the unpredictable and evocative wetplate collodion process together with her love of the ordinary everyday things of this world — both the world of humans and the world of nature – to see what this union of ordinary and extraordinary might produce. Hers is a small view, and intimate. the series of ambrotypes which make up Things of This World are also small, tiny paens to the ordinary beauties of everyday life.”
