3619 Epson tmy3200 583-EditNew Topographics has been a topic I have always been interested in. It deals with Man’s relationship with the landscape and since the 1970s has been a subject for photography. Currently, the Seattle Art Museum has an exhibition dealing with New Topographics that runs through the middle of April. I was there last week and shot a roll of Kodak Tmax P3200 film there. The film did not do very well. The large white walls and lighting created a bad look with a film that has lots of grain. I used the Nikon FM2 with the Nikkor 50mm 1:2 Lens and developed the film in D76 1:0 for 14 minutes @20C. The Northwest is no different than any other part of the earth. Every year the landscape yields to the needs of man. The last 3 images were shot near my home on Kodak 400TX and developed in D76 for 10 minutes @20C.
