Photo for Kodak

Kodak asked if I would let them use an image for their booth at the upcoming Photo Plus Expo.  I did mull it over for a bit but in the end obliged with this shot. I wanted to give them something that I personally don’t think could have been done on anything other than black and white film.

And, yes, this was indeed shot on Kodak film, Tri-x.  And for those photo dorks out there, notice the increased edge of density where the image meets the negative border (i.e. edge effects).  Call it a fault, or call it an interesting byproduct of using a paraminophenol/non-solvent developer invented in, like, circa 1890.
