My Two Worlds: Urban Landscapes

My Two Worlds: Spires

Composite Photograps: An innovation never done before at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. While in graduate school I concieved this process as a means of understanding how much light  the combination of color and black and white negative would require to get double image and how much color would come through. The density of the combined negatives required exceptionally long exposure times. I worked on this type of photography and mastered it to produce these images. The series was titled "My Two Worlds"

Combining two negatives had to have some meaning and purpose. At the time I was maybe a bit homesick and I had so many images of Colorado and the Southwest. I wanted to create images that combined both my previous home and my new home Chicago. With that in mind I began to make these images using a negative of Colorado and the west.  The other images from Chicago.
