Rae Starr, Sarah's Boat, Broke Inlet, picture story

Apr 29th, 2019 • Stories

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.

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