Over the past six+ years, except on rare occasions, all of my photographs have been made digitally.  About two years ago, I gave away my darkroom.  It was a bittersweet, but necessary response to a technological revolution well underway.  As digital media continues to push film towards obsolesce, I’ve been dutifully scanning my old “analog” images, converting the rich silver emulsions into 1’s and 0’s on my hard drives.  Here are a few of my favorite portraits from my 1986 series, “Bushyhead Calf Ropers,” shot at Clem McSpadden’s “World’s Richest Roping,” held in Bushyhead, Oklahoma.

  1. Many thanks for your kind words Boris. I do miss the darkroom, but not the chemicals. I’ve been using Epson printers for several years and combined with the Imageprint RIP, the results are really nice. My current model makes 16×20″ prints with ease.

    Hey, your recent travels sounded amazing… sorry to have missed you when you passed through KC.

  2. ELI, THIS IS BEAUTIFUL WORK….I REALLY LIKE IT…
    ABOUT TOSSING THE WET DARKROOM STUFF…HOW YOU GONNA MAKE 16X20 PRINTS TO SELL?
