Creative Update 84

Just over a year ago, I posted a very small body of my work here on this blog.

For this posting, I wanted to share some images from a photo assignment I did overseas.  In June of 1997 I was aboard the U.S.S. John F Kenndey aircraft carrier, and U.S.S. Anzio destroyer.  I also spent time in Denmark and Sicily.  Here are just a few of the images taken on that assignment.

* All of the images shown here were taken on 35mm Kodachrome transparency film and were shot with Leica SLR film cameras.

** All images were printed a special paper called Cibachrome.  Characteristics of Cibachrome prints are image clarity, color purity, as well as being an archival process able to produce critical accuracy to the original transparency.  Cibachrome prints are known for having great depth and given slight dimensional feel.

The two night time images taken aboard the aircraft carrier are ‘time-lapse’.  The light streaks that you see are the fighter jets taking off and leaving light trails while the camera lens was left open.  The one with light green on the lefthand side is the people that we on the flight deck where reflective vests.

The two of the homes were in Denmark.  I was so amazed that the bicycles were just leaning against the houses, or against trees in front of the houses.  I couldn’t believe it coming from California where people sometimes have two bicycle chains on them.

  1. Tom, Beautiful Work!!!
    I have to add that your images were gloriously printed on an almost lost art medium called Cibachrome. Cibachrome allows Color slides aka positives to be printed directly on paper. It should not be FORGOTTEN!
    Please stop by Tom’s desk if you’re in Glendale Office to enjoy the magic of Cibachrome.
