Dad bought this house (built in 1931) in October of 1971. He & Mom moved out of it in July of 2017. That's 45.75 years. It is the place they went together after their wedding on December 31st, the home they raised two children in for 22 years (1975-1997) & the structure that contains/exudes so many memories, ideas, fixtures, patterns, curiosities, puzzles & dreams.
Congratulations on moving on, Dad & Mom! May 345 Gaylord stand resilient for another 45.
I (or others) shot the photographs here during the specific months & years listed using black & white films in 35 or 120 mm manual cameras, polaroid, digital SLR & cell phone cameras. For the black & whites, I developed the film & made prints in a traditional wet darkroom.
The purpose of this site is to document & categorize my ideas, my projects, my life. Ultimately, 'Light & Dark' is a bit of a narcissistic endeavor: it serves as a public exhibition to where I've been, what I've chosen to photograph & how I've determined its context. Your interest & understanding is sincerely appreciated.
