Historical Photography

PHOTOGRAVURE

Started out as a black & white photographer, I eventually got very interested in historical photographic processes which led me to the Mecca of photography, Rochester NY, home of Kodak and the Visual Studies Workshop where I spent time learning about the various early methods of photography. I feel in love with the photogravure process and started producing images in one of the earliest printing method which is closely related to the classic method of etching.

TINTYPE STUDIO

Along with my photographer friend Archie MacLellan we created an authentic 1860’s Tintype Studio. We were the only in Canada- and only the second in North America using the original wet plate collodion process. The studio is still running in the historic recreated village of Sherbrooke, Nova Scotia.

New Film & Book Project

For the past few years my brother Chris and I have been travelling Nova Scotia interviewing “Back to the Land” who came to Nova Scotia in the early 70’s for a book and documentary film on this largely overlooked immagration movement that changed our province.

Chris Murphy, recently retires sociologist is well into completing the first draft of the book while work I continues on the documentary film.

Soon I will be posting some of the slightly edited interviews we filmed over the past two or more years.
