John Austin: Black and White Photography, Rae Starr: Pinhole, Cyanotype and Textiles


Rae Starr, Sarah's Boat, Broke Inlet 2017 - Picture Story

Apr 29th, 2019 • Rae StarrStories

The original negative was made by Rae Starr with her Zero 5x4" Pinhole Camera in December 2017 during a few days at Clare House, Broke Inlet, WA.  Broke Inlet gives us a quiet respite from the noise and bustle of Quinninup.

The 5x4' negative was copied on to lith film to give negatives and positives with tonal drop out, which Rae, being a 1960s girl, really enjoys.  I made a 10x8" lith copyneg for paper prints and a 20x24" lith copyneg for printing on fabric.  The print scanned for showing here is on Saunders water colour paper.

Rae does her darkroom work like Louis XIV The Sun King built Versailles, and she takes as much pride in it
