Birdsell Project Portraits

Birdsell Mansion is a beautiful old space that is in the process of being reclaimed for artists and community. The ideas and installations in the mansion are fascinating to me.  I decided to bring my old Hasselblad and photograph a few of the artists involved in the house that inspired the project. We set up in the middle of winter with very little heat, and my subjects were gracious as we shot and discussed their art.  

  This isn't the final step in this process!  I'm working hard to learn darkroom printing, and my goal is to print these photos and create a small exhibition!  There is something totally unique about seeing photos in a larger size on the wall.  The detail and the richness is beautiful, and I can't wait to invite you to check them out.
