0915_WalMart

Hope you can join me this evening in San Francisco for my opening of a selection of works from my current project, Dark Stores, Ghostboxes and Dead Malls at the Robert Koch Gallery. This exhibition presents a selection of photographs from the beginnings of the project up to the early spring of this year. I’m even more pleased to be showing this work along with a selection of 19th Century vintage albumen prints by Désiré Charnay. Charnay was one of the first europeans to photograph Pre-Columbian ruins in Mexico and Central America.

    Brian, do you use a color meter when you are shooting these? Your white balance is always impeccable, which is something I find nigh impossible when shooting scenes lit artificially.

    Just curious, thanks.

    Zane,
    No color meter or filters. When I make drum scans I get the image pretty neutral and the rest in photoshop.
