Salton Sea

Although I’ve been able to make some appealing images with my Zone VI 8×10 view camera, there were a couple shortcomings that began to bother me after about a year of use. First, because it’s made of wood, I always felt that it was a bit imprecise, and this goes against my nature. Next, since my 4×5 camera was made by Toyo, I couldn’t easily share lenses between the cameras unless I swapped out lensboards. Therefore, when a Toyo 810M view camera came up for sale, I jumped at the opportunity and purchased it.
.
Interestingly, I purchased this camera from Chris Jordan, an artist and photographer who is well known for several projects: “Midway”, “Intolerable Beauty”, and “In Katrina’s Wake”. I highly recommend you check out his work at www.chrisjordan.com

For this particular image, it was made at the Salton Sea in 2007 with a Toyo 810M view camera on Fuji Provia. Who says you can’t shoot directly into the sun, especially on transparency film?
