Polaroid Type 55
selenium toned silver gelatin print
I re-visited Gravina in the fall of 2011. While I was saddened to find that many of my past photography haunts had been demolished to make way for new structures, there were many new photographic opportunities that arose from the ever-changing landscape. This graffiti was one of my favorite discoveries.
Photographed using a Graflex Crown Graphic 4x5 camera and Kodak Ektar 127mm f/4.5 lens. Image printed on Kentmere fiber-based paper. Selective bleaching utilized. Accolades:
