When making the prints for the show I am almost always going colder, darker, muddier. Not always, but surprisingly often, less sharp. Softness and mood win out. And movement, both of the subject and of the camera are present. It's the opposite of what it seems I should want, but I'm looking to see the technology present in many, if not most, of the prints. And I am especially interested in noise vs. grain and the nostalgia of grain, the acceptance of grain as "real" versus "noise" as an electronically generated image.

This show is going to be off the chain!
