I have been more than a little distracted with papers and books I am trying to finish, mini urbex trips and my work at the improv institute during my “summer break”; but I finally got the Gandhi piece done for my What is Past is Prologue project!
What is Past is Prologue explores a history revisioned and asks: What happens when the images that make sense of our history (and eventually our future), no longer exist?
From my in-progress book: Private Space – a place to defend and develop the autonomous self.

A throwback to the time before winter in the McLean brothers auto wrecking yard. I finally had some time to scan a few negatives from the McLean’s shoot. I am really pleased with how my controversial expired 1980’s Sakuracolor SR100 film turned out – the lab was concerned my film would ruin their C41 chemistry costing them several hundred dollars and they didn’t want to run a risk for a $7 processing job without an assurance I would take responsibility for the disaster it was sure to cause.
Sakuracolor is Konica film and is meant to be developed in C41 chemistry. “Sakura” translates to “Cherry Blossom” in English.
The black and white images are Kodak TMAX 400 developed in Pyrocat HD. These images were made with my Rolleiflex.
We had the most enchanting encounter with a woman creating gigantic bubbles in Riverside Park yesterday.
It was a one of a kind experience to watch the giant iridescent bubbles morph and float over the Speed River.
