If you’re involved in any art form then every so often you’ll discover someone that makes you question everything you are doing. Nathan Wirth has left me momentarily lost. I don’t think my photography can possibly remain the same after seeing his work.

His self portraits are stunning, drenched with mood; the photographic equivalent of a Caspar David Friedrich painting.

His other work is equally special.

And yes, I am already shooting through 12 stops of black-glass!

A new high contrast rendering of a shot taken at the same time as the one that appears in the header of this site.

Like most of my black and white shots it was processed with the X-Equals Black and White toolkit. Here there is a slight selenium toning that I really like. The shot is a little soft, which you would expect with the Voitglander wide-open, and the focus isn’t really on the guys sitting down, but this rather adds to the atmosphere.
