Planning my 2023 trips over the next couple of weeks. I’m excited to continue work on my Central Appalachia project.

A long day of driving. A couple days of Florida might be nice…wish for a cloud or two though.

This is a rescan of work for my Central Appalachia Project. The original scan was too different from the work of this project using Portra 400. I used Kodak Ektar 100 on this comp and I find that it's naturally too saturated. With this rescan I processed the photograph to be a closer match with the other photos of this project.

When I travel into central Appalachia doing research and/or photographing for my current long form project. I’m often shocked when I drive into towns that I remember as once bustling. It’s been at least 40 years since I’ve been through Keystone, West Virginia. Recently, I was near the area and I decided to scout out the location and maybe meet a few local residents. Time was short but I did set up a photo of the Keystone Prep Plant. I look forward to spending more time documenting the town and its wonderful people this coming spring.

This is a quick 4x5 grab shot of the Looney Ridge Mine in Wise County, Virginia. This mine is owned by billionaire and Governor of West Virginia, Jim Justice. Coal companies owned by Justice and his family have a history of violating environmental standards and not paying fines and fees. This mine, including two others, has huge reclamation costs associated with them, and it is possible that the state could be left with the reclamation cost.

This is a big problem that Central Appalachia states have to contend with. These billionaire owners (some are politicians also) can easily bankrupt the LLC mine, leaving the reclamation to the taxpayer and without recourse.

I'm continuing to rescan and reprocess the early photographs that I took for my Central Appalachia project. I'll say it once again, Kodak Portra 400 negative film is just beautiful. It did render the foreground grass rather strong but it is pretty true in color.

I'm still rescanning and reprocessing a few photos and I love the feel of this one even more as time goes by. Kodak Portra 400 is a near perfect negative film for this work.

This is a rescan and process. I'm really happy that you can now see the blue sky as the clouds began to break through. I couldn't bring out this detail in the original scan.

How about another for the weekend? This is a rescan and reprocess. A little information about this photo. This is part of an enormous mountaintop removal surface mine reclamation area. The sad thing is that they are restriping parts of this site to the southeast side. Notice the invasive autumn olives in the foreground. They are heavily used because they'll grow on crushed rock.

My friend and photographer/educator, Mike Smith hooked me up with this beauty. It’s a Chamonix Saber 4x5 rangefinder camera. I’m going to make some fun work with this. It was also great to spend some quality time in his studio looking at his wonderful work.
