Multiples Multiply

Working with the Bronica, which had a means to recock the shutter without advancing the film, I expanded the potential of image combinations. 

Sometimes I would carefully position the elements in the style of Jerry Uelessman. This particular image is not a new discovery, as a print does exist in my collection. But the next three are new to my eyes, fresh visions from a young man in the 1960s.

Sometimes the images would dance together in the manner of Harry Callahan.

And then different things would happen.

The elm tree is a "known" image, from the yard at McKeen Street.

This is one of my first images using masking (my hand) to make a strong spatial shift. "Unknown" image, one of the the many reasons I'm making this journey, as are all the following.

I remain fascinated at the way some images combine to make a new thing.

A wave goodbye until the next post.
