hi,

wow, i just found this website while randomly surfing the net, and boy am i glad i did! i'll probably be putting in a lot of time looking through the posts, articles, and images.

i'm 28 years old, currently living in champaign, IL. i'm from chicago, but spiritually i'm from new york. i am/was a fine arts/photography student at loyola, where i finished all of the photo classes but still haven't graduated. also finished a minor in philosophy.

i hate all things digital, because art, for me, is about making the thing, the physical "art object". (sorry if i overintellectualize everything :wink: that's the philosophy side of the brain talking) however, i realize i can't be a luddite when it comes to commercial work, though, which i still hope to get into. so far, i've made $3 on photography :wink:

generally i now shoot medium format with mamiya 7ii (my baby) and fuji ga-645 rangefinders, but i love my inconspicuous little contax 35mm point-and-shoot as well. last year, i got to use a borrowed 4x5 view camera and totally fell in love with it, but alas i can't afford one right now :sad: i print my own color, b&w, and ilfochrome. lately i've been experiencing a total creative lull and haven't taken more than snapshots for months. but i do have some ideas stewing in the back of my head...

you're all welcome to take a look at my crappy website, http://www.peterosuchowski.com, but i'll definitely be posting work in the image gallery, and hopefully getting some nice, brutal feedback. i look forward to meeting the other members of this site and participating in all of its aspects!

peace,
peter

Welcome Peter,

I'm sure that you will find this place both informative and inspiring to shake you out of your lull. I sure did :smile:.

Welcome to the site. I also was very happy when I found this site. I'm a 35mm range finder photog starting to expand into medium format.

Welcome from Canada. We spell "welcome" the same way as the Yanks. Or at least our "l's" aren't stuck LOL. Checked out your website. You have some interesting stuff. I am sure you will find this sight inspiring to say the least.

Welcome Peter!

Do we really wander into a place like this, or is it fate/destiny that brings us here? Either way, it is home! So welcome home from your neighbor to the north!
