Thanks for the reply Dick, you have stimulated me to think about quite a big conversation that I would like to be having... I grew up as a commercial photographer in the world of Ektachrome 64 and consequently bypassed the whole b&w print issue and stopped printing and processing when I couldn't cope with the volume, coming back later via projects and with the advent of digital a return to craft, I've now got a 20" x 24" hand-built camera and a selection of old aero reconnaissance lenses as well as a taste for wet collodion, and have also many other formats as well as Hasselblad 50mp back. My question is really how to achieve the best results in the darkroom and using alt process without doing it all myself, as I feel that therein lies the road to ruin, I have found collaborators but it's basically too expensive unless I am getting well funded through public commissions/projects and commercial work, would be great to hear your thoughts, have a look at the Parzival pictures on my website, this is the narrative that I want to amplify through the prints, yet at the moment I can only make digital prints of them...best wishes David
That is probably the general impression seeing as I have lived here for seventy years but I am in fact a Yorkshireman who possibly is relatively unusual in having no Irish ancestry.. I did however have an Irish stepfather and that is how I ended up in this country.
All that aside, I wanted to say that you do not deserve a medal for this gargantuan contribution to photographic research but in fact a whole chestful of medals. I knew you were doing this work as I remember you copying material when you were here with us but I never imagined that it could be so all-encompassing. I am overwhelmed with admiration and cannot imagine how the photo-historical world can thank you sufficiently, not even a bar on your Hon FRPS, in military terms, would seem enough to me. Perhaps the RPS could strike a special medal?
I suppose the next stage is to find out how to access the material.
Incidentally my Fourth Earl book is getting close to publication, it would be great if you could be back at the castle for the launch which I hope will be next year.
There is no family connection, sadly.
