Print: Old Bones (Diptych)

During my sophomore year of college, I inherited my family's 1993 Chrysler Town & Country minivan. It has over 175,000 miles on it, and is most likely nearing the end of its life. Having grown up with my van, it holds a lot of sentimental value. If you ever read this blog, you know that my van is the subject of many of my test shots with new film cameras I acquire. Being so special to me, I decided my van is deserving of more serious work based on it. This abstraction diptych shows the aged, yet elegant geometric forms of my Town & Country. These images were made using my Nikon F  with a 50mm F/3.5 macro Nikkor, on Ilford HP5+ film. The physical prints are each 5x7 inches.

I hope to make more prints in the future showing off more geometric forms, as well as organic forms (rust, cracks, etc). Thanks for looking!
