ARGH!!!!!! You are going to make us wait another 11 days?!?!??

Impatient and cranky 3-year old

Ahh. Cars and lenses were OK but it's good to be back to photos.

Great, I already have two palladium prints from Carl Weese. I believe those were Ziatypes, the process conceived by Bostick & Sullivan. I think you Mike also have those prints too. I remember you mentioned that in some of your articles for Camera and Darkroom magazine, maybe. This will be platinum/palladium or the same Ziatype, or is the same? Thanks very much for convincing Carl for this project.


By the way, Ctein dye transfers are fantastic.

I was in Seville at the same time. I decided to try making a video using my Canon 5D MKII and a monopod. You can see a short 4 minute video (in 720HD) at http://www.youtube.com/user/bigtraveller

Its not professional by any stretch.I shot about 40 minutes in total.

Most of the night scenes are at 1600ASA.Some were 2-3am or just before dawn (the processions stretch throughout the night).

Its the first time I've spent 4 days with a camera and not shot stills.

Brassai did an interesting photo essay in Seville in the 50's.
Judging by the sample/preview image here it looks as though Mr. Turnley's photos from this trip may be a bit easier on the eye than the Brazilian ones!

Marcelo, Ziatype is simply one of several methods for producing a palladium or platinum/palladium print, so yes, the end result is the same medium, but has different tonal and color properties. The prints this time will be done with the more traditional develop-out method. More details will be revealed later--once the sale is underway, I will do a couple posts detailing the exact materials and procedures used to make the pictures and the prints.

12 years ago it was a silver print. It's interesting: I'll have three variations of Carl's work.


This isn't a photography post, but sometimes inaccuracies really bother me. The three women in the first photograph are described as "dressed in La Mantilla (the mantle)". A mantilla isn't a mantle -- it's a mantilla -- the same word is used in English and in Spanish. A mantilla is a piece of lace which is worn over a woman's head, very often draped over the large combs that these women have in their hair.

Had to get that off my chest.

Thanks Kerstin. Fixed now.


More from Peter Turnley?

Oh, drooley.

Thanks very much Carl.



I vote for the picture from Council Bluffs.
