I was lucky enough to be accepted into Christopher James Advanced Alternative Processes workshop in Santa Fe, New Mexico this past month. I don't even know what to say . . . If you have photographed in this process then you know just how deeply staggering it is. One minute you've made this perfect thing that no one in the world can reproduce, even if they tried. The next minute everything could go wrong and you just want to Hulk Smash everything around you (watch the cyanide). If you haven't worked in this process, you just don't know astonishing it truly is.
It was a week to truly remember making new friends. A very special thank you to Cotton Miller for putting the video together.
