In The Field Of Faith And Light (Vintage Silver), Today's Coolphoto 09/23/2019

When we were young we entered the orbit of L’Arche and Faith and Light through our church at St Leo’s in Tacoma. I was a minor satellite in that universe where the hot sun at the center was the truth of lives lived disabled. People closest to the center shine a light too bright to be hidden. The light is enough to fill the dark corners of any life nearby, and so we saw ourselves more clearly for who we were.

L’Arche Tahoma Hope began in 1977 with a knock on the door…..a patient, persistent knock. At the time, David Rothrock and Fr. Peter Byrne were co-pastors of St. Leo’s Parish. St. Leo’s is located in Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood; a neighborhood that is quite challenged by society’s standards, but one that has much heart and soul. One evening, around 6pm, David and Peter heard a knock on their door. Upon answering the door, they found Fred Kobel and Greg Hanon.. Fred and Greg were housemates at a nearby facility, and stopped by to say “hi”. As it was the dinner hour, David and Peter invited them in for dinner. The rest, they say, is history….

Vintage prints are made within a year of the photographs create date. My usual practice is to print within a few days or weeks of exposure. What you see is a scan of the actual print that is for sale. Price does not include shipping or taxes.

Please note that vintage prints are imperfect. They’re old, after all. If you’re worried about it, bring it up. I’ll do my best to answer your questions.

Vintage - When I print the photograph within a year of the original exposure, that becomes a Vintage Print.
Archival Pigment - When I print in my studio using computer technology with pigmented inks on acid and lignin free paper, I call that an Archival Pigment Print.
Silver - When I print in my darkroom on gelatin silver paper, that is a Silver Print. These prints are double weight on a cotton fiber base.
