Rock Forms, 1986. Joshua Tree National Park, California

Rock Forms, 1986. Joshua Tree National Park, California


I first shot this image in or around 1970 with a 35mm camera. I showed an early print of this image made from that small format negative to master photographer Wynn Bullock at his home in 1973. He liked the image a lot and his comments moved me to re-shoot the image on 4x5 film many years later. The larger negative is much sharper and far more printable. The print requires a moderate amount of burning and dodging as well as some localized bleaching in order to maximize the separation between the foreground forms and the shadowed background rocks. The smooth and graceful forms contribute to the obvious sensual connotations of this image. I find that this image works best as a small to medium size print.
