Mary Ellen Mark.

sx-70 polaroid of Mary Ellen Mark.

heard Mary Ellen Mark speak about ten years ago in chicago.
asked her if i could expose a polaroid and she said yes.
hit the shutter...and the shutter would not close.
maybe seven or eight seconds later it finally wrapped up.
there were plenty of people behind me, so i took my overexposed polaroid 
(+ my freshly busted camera) and thanked her.
when it was first exposed could barely see a ghostly image of the top of her head.
now that is gone and there is only a faint 'm' present in the bottom left corner.
she passed away in may.

congratulations to everyone in the usa.
marry the one you want
with respect and security.

Diseño gráfico.

 Cover for seven-inch record Restroy by the septet Restroy.
 -gold ink on silver gelatin print.
Imagine folding the above in half...right side is the front cover...left side is the back.
Musicians: Nick Anaya + Chris Dammann + James Davis + Catherine Monnes +
Daniel Richardson + Gina Sobel + Tim Stine.
 
Photograph above was made in the home of Milo Tamez, in San Cristóbal, Chiapas, in 2013.
Exposed one sheet of 4x5 film for the beautiful light which was pouring through the front doors
(photograph is upside-down for the above cover).
Print was made earlier this year in the darkroom on a 16" x 20" sheet
of double weight fiber silver gelatin paper.
Spent a lot of time working on the type,
and even more time avoiding working on the type.
Made the seven-inch cover along with two small labels for the actual record,
as well as a cd cover and cd label.
Both will be available towards the end of this year.
Special thanks to Chris and Nick.
