The Grid photos: Paper Negs

Last night Eye magazine was relaunched as The Grid and it looks great funny smart and free.

For the launch The Grid gave 6 of its new boxes out to creatives of Toronto with the direction " make something / anything with this box "

I took an angle grinder to my box and cut a hole in the back side for a lens and made it into a giant view camera. I used photo paper instead of film as the negatives then photographed the Grid team with it. Each subject sat in the dark while I loaded photo paper into the back of the camera then made the exposure. A huge flash in the dark. The Negatives were then processed and contacted printed and bound it a book 16 by 20 inches in size. The first photographs ever made by Fox Talbot were made this way. The low depth of field and the very formal process of sitting still makes taking the photograph an event and creates a unique look.

Brady and Lang Fan 590 from sandy nicholson on Vimeo.

Shot for Rogers Sportnet , Motion and stills, A very quick shoot 1 hour total for both motion and stills.

Its great working on this series it's a playful and simple idea which makes directing the talent a lot of fun. Bouncing ideas around with Jim and Greg created good footage for Garus and his team at Meru Media Inc to create the Type treatment.
