Amazing.. and he uses 5x7 view camera.. with FILM!!!
Thanks Todd. The user interface of his site using my iPhone is simply awful but once I found the images it was worth it. Some gorgeous work on there.
Thanks for the link Todd. Oddly, I haven't come across any of this work here in Santa Fe (???) but will go search it out now. Very solid LFF work.
I live in Rio Rancho, right down the hill. cool! Yhea.. he is having a show. Saw the news feature on KQRE news. That one image of someone holding that goat.. incredible detail!
Agrred on the goat photograph. Those hands tell a story on their own. I'll check this out tonight on a bigger screen. Thank you for sharing this.
I have his "Ghost Ranch" book and it is outstanding. Recommend getting acquainted with his work.
Todd, one of these days you'll make it up here and come stop by Bostick-Sullivan right? Get you hooked on some alt. process stuff.
Always appreciate these links...thanks again.
The skies are generally overdone for my taste.
Good photos, bad site.
I personally hate sites that are all Flash and just slideshow the pics at me for half a second. What I saw of the ones that I managed to see before my eyes started hurting were great though.
He's teaching on his own, shooting Canon DSLR.
Ghost Ranch is a wonderful place. I stay and hike there a couple of times each year, spent last weekend there.
Not interested in this kind of photographs.
Todd, thanks for sharing the link......excellent work with the LF gear and film........
I printed a show for this Photographer about 8 years ago , it hung in the Albequrquee Museum, I remember at the time my first test prints for approval the sky's were not as dramatic and he insisted on going deeper and more
dramatic.. This was a bone of contention during his stay up here as we printed.
fwiw my impression from his website and various gossip is that he may be a bit of a challenge...however his large format B&W work, seen in his Ghost Ranch prints is compelling. Some potential students may be willing to pay that beyond-money price to learn from him. My guess is that he doesn't actually realize how good he can be (like many of us) ... and may overcompensate with too much drama. I've only had one teacher, a Minor White personal student , so maybe I'm especially interested in photos with context (would include the remarkable dedication Varjabedian put into his Ghost Ranch photos).
