The Depths of Châtelet

September 4, 2015 0 Comments

An escalator in the massive Châtelet station in the Paris Metro. In the center of the city, the station was just over 100 years old when I took this shot back in 2001. No need for digital film grain and dust filters on this shot — actual film grain and dust comes from the Ilford HP5 I used at the time, and the Nikon scanner to make the digital image. I miss the darkroom days.

Because the Slacking Universe Needs a Center

June 18, 2005 0 Comments

I am selflessly volunteering. It starts with some kind of twitch, I think, and from what I can gather, most of you are afflicted with some form of this thing, too: After going some while without being on a plane across an ocean, without having another stamp in the passport, without the struggle of a strange language in a strange land, without the gastrointestinal chaos that inevitably comes from cuisine found just the other side of one’s sphere of microbial familiarity, the twitch metastasizes.
