Most people think that blending multiple images into one image began with the invention of Photoshop which is of course not true. I blended this image and many others in the darkroom in 1977 inspired by Master Photographer.Jerry Uelsmann.

Photoshop does make it easier though. To make Row for Your Life, I had to create a mask, make multiple exposures on photographic paper, process and dry. Of course it would have taken hours to get the two negatives. Shooting the images, processing the negative film, making contact prints before you could even evaluate which images you wanted to blend.

This is an image of a fall sky in Pittsburgh blended with a Pelican from Merritt Island Florida. Took an hour or so after I had the concept,

Tour Eiffel Remains Closed

The Eiffel Tower remains closed today in the days following the cowardly bombings and murder in Paris. Although the creation of Gustave Eiffel’s masterpiece erected in 1889 was only supposed to a temporary entry arch for 1889 World’s Fair,it has remained to become the symbol of the city. I hope that soon the Champ de Mars is alive with people excited to ascend to the top and people flock to the Trocadero Plaza at sunset to see this sight.

Sunday in Paris

We live in a violent world. A friend reminded me yesterday of two other hideous events that happened this week in Beirut and Bagdad where more lives were lost than in Paris. Yet the violence in Paris impacted me more. Why? I guess because I have been there a few times and Paris is familiar. Of course that doesn’t make rational sense, horror is horror and terror is terror. It does however make emotional sense in the same way that seeing the fall of the World Trade Centers forces a visceral response.

In any case today is Sunday and although the season is wrong, this is the way I think of Paris on Sundays. I hope Parisians are taking to the streets,buying baguettes and enjoying the gardens.
