See them soon...

Palladium Prints
Originally uploaded by argusmaniac.
In case you haven't already seen them, the 14x20 Pt/Pd prints by Kenro Izu of the grounds and temples at Angkor Wat are really something. The show, at the Univ. Mich. Museum of Art (UMMA) goes until April 2. Platinum/Palladium prints have deep rich grays and blacks that look like no other b&w material. The images are just amazing, and evoke a mood akin to what the first western explorers may have seen when they encountered these amazing structures in the Cambodian forest.
The thought of toting around a 14x20 view camera is pretty daunting!
