Front Ends of Old Cars - a two part image distribution

Following on the heels of the good news from Lenswork Magazine and my inclusion in their "Seeing in Sixes" book project, I thought it could be fun celebration to release another mini-project or two.

With this post I'm releasing "Front Ends of Old Cars" parts one and two.  As you will see, I'm somewhat taken with the six image approach to project sharing.  It hones my mind and forces me to say what I really want to say in a concise manner.

I love automobiles and have ever since my uncle used to give me his Road and Track after he'd read them back in the 1960's and 1970's.  Many of the vintage vehicles I've encountered in Paris are examples of the very cars I used to read about.  The experience of reliving my youth is a powerful one.  Every chance I get I head out the door with cameras in hand to watch my early dreams come true.

Here is "Front Ends of Old Cars" part one.

Here is "Front Ends of Old Cars" part two.

If you have any feedback for me, please feel free to drop me a line.  I'd enjoy hearing from you.

Good News... le deuxieme part

As I mentioned in a post from a couple days ago, one of my submissions to Lenswork "Seeing in Sixes" has been picked up and will be published. Here's what one of their editors had to say.

"Hello Christopher… Congratulations (again!) on having your work selected for “Seeing In Sixes.” This is a HUGE accomplishment, as we received nearly 1,900 entries. It was very difficult to whittle down from the 125 finalists; the caliber of work was that good. In the end, less than 3% of the entries – with a tremendous amount of photographic vision and diversity -- will make up the book."

 You can only imagine how thrilled I am to be published alongside 49 other photographic artists.  This is an honor and I can't wait to see everyone's work in print.

An interesting bit of history...

I came across this video on Nikon Rumors today.  It's a wartime film made late in the conflict from January to April, 1944.  Setting aside the film's script, I find it interesting to see how lenses are (or were) ground.  According to the comments under the video the factory was destroyed in 1945 when the Allies bombed the area.

Good news...

Finally, something to celebrate.

This morning I received news that Lenswork Magazine selected my Medieval Steel entry to be published as part of their "Seeing in Sixes" book.  50 photographer's work has been selected and of course I'm thrilled to be included.  It's always a pleasure to work with Brooks Jensen and his fine staff.
