Andenes is my most popular image from Peru. Andenes was captured near the famous Colca Canyon, using a specialized Kodak film that I adapted for precisely this kind of photograph. It was Kodak Professional Copy Film Type 4125. As has happened with so many other excellent analog photographic materials, this film no longer exists.
The images on this page were taken in the late 1980s while living in the southern city of Arequipa, in Peru. Though all of these images were originally shot on large format B&W film, the prints offered here are pigment on paper prints made from high resolution digital scans of the negatives, using a high end, professional grade inkjet printer.
Another popular image, Church at Vitor shows the only church and the main road through town. There are a handful of 16×20 silver-gelatin prints still available from my archives. Please feel free to inquire, if you would like one of those few remaining silver-gelatin prints of images on this page. There will never be any more.
Most of my inventory of these images was printed on coated, cotton rag inkjet papers which I used during my initial change from analog to digital printing, beginning in 2008. I began the changeover to watercolor and printmaking papers in about 2011. Though not capable of quite as deep a tone as coated inkjet papers, the new papers are nonetheless more elegant and far more tactile.
I am currently experimenting with a 1991 chemically updated version of an 1842 paper process invented by Sir John Herschel. His process was called argentotype. The new process is called argyrotype and is absolutely gorgeous. I may eventually print some of these images as argyrotypes.
Always a haunting image. I was with another photographer this day. We both work strictly in B&W, so both returned home with absolutely no proof that it is indeed possible for a patch of sky to be an iridescent, bright, emerald green. Though exceedingly rare, it turns out this phenomenon has been observed by others.
Very remote and quite a dangerous area. Sendero Luminoso terrorists were everywhere at the time. I was alone. There are three locations in this region of Peru that are referred to by locals as Stone Forest.
With another photographer the day this was captured, a pickup truck filled with soldiers stopped just long enough to warn us to flee for our lives. We never saw the terrorists, but they were in the area.
Images from the 400+ year old Santa Catalina convent in Arequipa.
Long in dis-use, this large Santa Catalina kitchen still had deeply blackened walls from centuries of cooking. The heavy soot made the exposure longer than fifteen minutes.
One of my favorite images, this is a street inside the Santa Catalina convent.
