Continuing to experiment with the 3x3 collage print format. Images collected over 3-4 years at a decommissioned power plant in South Seattle.

Hi Char,

These all are really interesting, but I am smitten by the one in the upper left corner with the disembodied windows - that is really cool!

Hey Char! (@cdavies)

Would you please post bigger images for each of the 9 individual images that make up this panel?  I find the individual images intriguing and the panel as well but the images are too small for my aging eyes.  Each of these 9 appears to be an image that bears close scrutiny! 🙂

Cheers!

Very cool Char and a great creative exercise.  Can you share with us some of your thoughts as you put these together? 

I am with John on the top left image and can't wait to plug this into a big screen to take a closer look.

Images are two- to nine-frame in-camera multiple exposures (except the center boy-in-the-window). Most are heavily processed to overcome bland RAW files. I white-balanced on the gray concrete walls and the rest of the colors went where they went from there. This is an often photographed location, spawning serious but tedious B/W images, thus inspiring my contrarian self to go in a different direction.

The image selection was quick in order to make a 16x16 print to take to my monthly photo group meeting. They represent more of a cross-section than a well-considered curation. Each image has so much detail that nine of them in a 3x3 presentation might overload the eyeballs. Might want to cleanse your visual palette with a few Michael Kenna's after examining these photos.

Being one location I suppose I could "tell a story", but I think I prefer the "chaos" angle, at the moment.

Char,

Thanks much for posting the larger images.  They are all very, very good!  You are a master of the ICM technique.  I'm always in awe of the things you and Patti do with ICM.

My favorite though is the image of the boy on the escalator.  That image is absolutely superb!  I'd suggest taking down in luminosity the stuff to the left and below the boy for possibly more impact.

Would love to see more of your images, @cdavies.  How about some of your latest Hokkaido images?

Cheers!

Char,

 

This is very interesting and I really have not seen the like before. Unique seems an understatement. Makes me want to try this technique just to see the possibilities, however you seem to have the market on this creative endeavor. I too am drawn to the boy on the escalator. I look forward to even more from you. Thanks for sharing this technique and your mastery of such. Bob
