finish line

Whether we're ready or not, the end of the semester is here. I've posted a few of the recent ones I've printed to bring to the residency. It's been a tremendous battle to get the use of a computer for printing. And having switched to an Epson 4900 for the majority of the printing I have had a lot of technical issues to work out. I didn't get most other papers to use even with applying the Digital Media ground from Golden that is supposed to make all papers usable in the printer. I tried Kraft paper, thin drawing paper, cut photo paper, and water color paper (not the commercially treated kind - this had been used previously for a salt print that didn't work). I've had many tear causing a paper jam. That's what I've spent quite a lot of time working on. Just wanting to print on non-photographic paper. These images I went ahead and printed on regular ol Luster photo paper.

I think I have in mind finishing these up into a series. The square ones I have several other images that I thing will be a separate series. The road one, I am interested in the work of Uta Barth and looking to less identifiable subject or missing subject.
I'm trying to look ahead and figure out what my next step will be heading into the busy 2nd semester.

I've been reminded that I haven't posted in awhile. I've not been sitting idle - it's just my computer quit and I've had to beg, borrow, and steal others to just try to finish papers and print images.

I'll do a very quick recap on some of the prints I've been making. I am actually thinking it will work out into a few different series. One I'm using the working title Lost/Found.

Ok so I now I have to go find the images. I left them on a different computer so I have to track them down and copy them.
